LISTEN : Hope in God opens the door to divine intervention. When the heart is genuinely glued to God His power would certainly be released. Beloved, with God there’s hope for you. Life can be unfair and terribly frustrating, yet, there is hope when we have God in our side. (Romans 8:31). My dear, when God is in your side things naturally fall into place. With God, there is hope in every situation no matter how hopeless the situation may seem. Troubles and trials may overwhelme you, but faith in God can terminate their power over your life. Frustration and hopelessness can’t reign in your life when faith rules your heart. My dear, there’s hope for you! So, learn to depend on God in everything, especially in times of troubles and trials. (Psalms 56:3 ). Determine to live above your fears and believe that you can’t be crushed or driven to dispair. Encouraging believers in Christ Jesus to be strong, courageous and eternity-minded, Apostle Paul said, “We are experiencing trouble on every side, but are not crushed; we are perplexed, but not driven to despair.” (2 Corinthians 4:8). Beloved, trouble is a common experience of humanity. Some are made by it, while others are marred by it. What makes the difference is what you believe. Your faith in God will keep you moving when situation wants you to be stagnant and heartbroken. But he who puts his hope in God can’t be crushed by troubles of life or driven to despair. Henceforth, believe in God and you’ll not drown in the ocean of trials. No matter what you go through, be strong and hope in God. Be wise!
