Are you in need of hope? If so, click here to read my devotion, A Hope To Hold on To.
If you came here after reading my devotion, I realized there’s a good chance you are feeling hopeless. Maybe you’ve misplaced your hope. Maybe you’ve put your hope in your career, your children, your spouse, or position, financial security, or materialism. You’ve discovered as I have that misplaced hope disappoints. The good news is hope in God doesn’t disappoint. You see, where there is God there is hope.
You and I have this hope… God is committed to us. He’s committed in the hard times;
The sad times
The glad times
The painful times
And In failure
God is committed to us. Our dreadful times are nothing new. They haven’t caught God off guard. Whatever you’re facing God is aware of. He knows your pressures and your stress. More so, God is working behinds the scene for your good. And God never fails.
As I look back, I have come to realize that despite my past downfalls, I made it. I still achieve great things. Whenever my faith was stretched beyond what I thought I could bare, I found renewed strength in God’s provision. And today, I’m learning not to live in despair but in expectancy of what God can do in any situation. Doing so keeps my adversity from shrinking me faith and killing my hope. Instead, it expands it because I know God is sovereign over all. He’s in control. He’s got my back. And He has my best interest at heart.
Where there is God there is hope.
What about you? Will you choose to acknowledge God’s presence and awareness of your situation? Will you put your hope in Him to accomplish what’s best? If so, your hopelessness will give way to hope for today as you live in the light of His presence.
