DON’T LOOSE HOPE
BIBLE READING: Romans 15:13
“Finding Hope In Difficult Times – Even in the Darkest Moments”
Hope means, “to desire something with confident expectation of its fulfillment.” The state of Hopelessness has been aptly described as a type of “Hell on Earth,” filled with endless despondency and despair.
Today, more and more people are finding themselves alone and depressed, and few of us have not at one time or another felt the sting of despondency and despair.
But Good news! Help is available, not the kind the world has, wherein it wishes for the best. It is one thing to wish, and quite another to have faith based on the promises of God.
God is Our Source:
Paul wrote that when you place your trust in God He will fill you with peace, joy, and assurance, (Rom 15:13).
Throughout the Bible God proves His faithfulness to His people by leading them safely through, or delivering them from all their predicaments and troubles. He will never leave or forsake His people; His plans are to prosper, not to harm them (Jer 29:11).
People and things will always let us down. In Psa 33:17, the horse, often used as a symbol of power, is declared a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength, it cannot save. In Jer 17:5 God sternly warns against placing our dependency in man, and calls it a curse.
God wants us to trust in Him. Psa 147:11 tells us that He is delighted when we put our trust in Him, and in Heb 10:23 we are told to rely on Him for He who promised it is faithful.
