BRINGING HOPE TO THE HOPELESS

Hope for the hopeless can be found in the Word of the Lord. Knowing that there is a better day coming helps us to overcome the setbacks life throws us. The disappointment that comes our way is bearable because we know that God is able. 

Through faith we can do the impossible because it moves God to do for us, what we cannot do for ourselves. It also helps us to see that nothing is impossible with God. Many have not, because they ask not! Some receive not because of doubt in the ability of the Great I am. We should strive always to banish doubt from the heart so that whatever we ask of God can surely come to pass. Because faith is the only key that can unlock heavens storehouse.

The Word of God says "Believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." Here is described a faith which takes hold of the promise of God and receive the blessing that awaits all those who exercise this faith. This faith is an awareness of the power  of the Divine, an experienced communion, one that only comes from a daily trust in God and  a realization of the certainty of the promise. A knowledge that it is impossible for God to lie; a truth that God is faithful and true.

"Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us."

Do not allow your faith to waver because your prayer is not immediately honoured; just trust God and take Him at His Word, allow Him to take whatever time He chooses in fulfilling His purposes.

 There will sometimes be delay,  but have faith in God. Although there will be delays in answering prayer, know that such delays will only strengthen you if you rely on Him totally.
