Hope is refusing to give up. When everything is coming against you, you keep pressing in!! HOPE ANCHORS THE SOUL.
In my experience, life can be extremely difficult, and we know it comes in many forms; sickness, financial needs, divorce, addictions, death, grief, depression, difficult people, etc.
Its hard to ignore what you see going on around you but the word tells us to walk by faith and not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7
My facts don’t tells me the end of my story and they don’t tell you the end of your story either. When your symptoms keep screaming at you, you come back at them with the word of God. “I am the healed of the Lord!” “By his stripes I am healed.”
If you have a wayward child and they keep going further away, decree “Train up a child the way they should go; when they are old they will not depart.” Proverbs 22:6 Pray for your child’s ears and eyes to be open and they can hear God’s voice. Pray that God would put the perfect people in their path, people they can hear and relate too that can help them along their journey.
Go deeper into the word for your particular circumstance. Find scripture that pertains to you and what your going through. If your struggling with fear it doesn’t do you any good to study prosperity, right? Study what you need.
With faith we gotta see it before it comes to pass. Visualize it. Visualize what it looks like to be healed and whole, doing things you couldn’t do before, things with your family and friends. Things you know God has wanted you to do.
Visualize what it looks like to be set free from drugs or alcohol.
I mean be specific, what would your life look like?
How could God use you more and you walk more in your destiny? Helping others. How could your family and relationships be restored?
When the facts of my life come crashing in on me, I have the choice to choose HOPE or HOPELESSNESS. We are choosing something whether we realize it or not. What are you choosing?
This hope [this confident assurance] we have as an anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whatever pressure bears upon it]—a safe and steadfast hope that enters within the veil [of the heavenly temple, that most Holy Place in which the very presence of God dwells], Hebrews 6:19
I don’t know what trials or circumstances are coming against you today, but if you can choose hope; a confident expectation that something good is gonna happen to you to you….things will begin to move and shake and things will begin to turn around. It may take some time but it will. Just keep expecting something good every day!!
Hope leads us to strength, faith, joy and God’s plans and purposes for you sweet friend.
I’m sticking with God. He proves to be good to me over and over again!! When I am weak and weary He will strengthen me and give me rest and He will for you too precious one.
I will rest in You! Thank You Lord for my Hope is in You and You alone!
God bless y’all and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
