Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Wednesday to you all! I am so glad to be back with you today…and I pray that as we spend this time together with God; that we will truly come to see that there is hope, even in what appears to be a hopeless world…Amen!!
You know…it seems that as we watch evil rise up within this world around us; we also find ourselves losing the grip we once had with hope. As each situation we face…makes this world seem as though hope will never be seen or felt again; there is a promise that God has given us in Jeremiah 29:11; that can truly help to keep hope alive within our hearts, and we read… "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."
Isn't it amazing, as to how we can easily find ourselves judging the final outcome of this life, just by what we see and experience each day. One thing we must remember though; is that God is standing on the other side of all that we are facing at this time…and He already knows the final outcome of all we are going through in this world. Even though we may not see this world in the way that He does, we must remember that His plan for this world isn't meant to bring His children to a defeated end by evil; but rather, His plan is meant to gradually lead us to the other side with Him, where He can care for us…not abandon us; and even more, to give us a future that's filled with an eternal hope.
There is one thing that I can encourage you with today; and that is that God is a God who truly stands on every promise He makes to us in His word; and what He says in His word…that will he do.
As I look back on my life…my thoughts are being taken back to a time when I had hit rock bottom…and if you want to meet someone who once lost all hope in their life…that would be me. Anyways, as my life came crashing down to nothing, I couldn't even begin to imagine hope ever rising up within me again…because of all that I had been going through; but eventually a time did come, when I did begin to feel the presence of God all around me…and it was as though He was reaching out to my spirit…to console me…and make a promise to me that everything would be alright.
After experiencing that moment alone with God…I didn't know what to think or feel at first; because the weight of all that I was going through at the time was definitely trying to convey a different story to me. Even though it took some time for me to truly take hold of all that God was longing to convey to my heart…a time did come when I did; and with even more time, I came to see that His plan wasn't one that would allow evil to continue on with what it had started; but rather, it was a plan to heal and restore me from a devastating past, so I could have the heart that God knew I would need to serve Him…and to help and encourage others.
The one thing that I learned through these difficult times in my life; is that even though we see our situation as a hopeless one; we must always remember that God is viewing it in a much different way, just as I came to see within my own life. So when you feel like these grim times have now become a hopeless situation…remember one thing; God is using these times, as a plan to give you a better future…one that will always be filled with hope.
Have a very blessed day…and I will hope to be with you again tomorrow!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
