Where is your Hope? What a difference one day makes. We travel through each day hurried and sometimes painfully unaware of the hope that each one of us has been blessed to know. Every day we can look around us with the war on the world of good versus evil. Whether it be in our own neighborhood, in our government, work place, schools, church and the list goes on. We can lose sight and not be looking forward with confidence and expectation.
Hope is more than just asking God for something we so badly need; we must expect our miracle. Somewhere in the midst of asking, believing, and expecting God to answer, we will find what we are looking for. Psalm 27:13 “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”
Someone who is hopeless and alone usually cannot help themselves out of their situations. They have a great sense of loss and helplessness. We must come alongside and bring the good news of Jesus Christ and all that He has to offer.
Every situation we find ourselves in at this moment, there is hope. You may not be able to see or feel the hope, but it is there for you. How do we find the hope? There is only one place where hope can be found, and that is in Jesus Christ.
David found himself in situations many times and had to remind himself that hope is real. It comes from God. Here are a few of David’s prayers to God:
Psalm 39:7 “And now, Lord, what wait I for? My hope is in thee.”
Psalm 42:11 “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted within me? Hope thou in God for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.”
Psalm 119:49 “Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou has caused me to hope.”
Pray out loud the words of hope into your life and your situations. I have hope! My hope is in the Lord! I will be strong and wait on the Lord. I trust God with my life and the life of my family. Speak these words every day. Hope is Real. It comes from God! He has placed it in your heart. Speak it out and watch what God will do for you.
Romans 15:13 “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit.”
