As long as you have Jesus, you have hope. Hope will never die. Hope came back from the dead. You might think that all hope is lost because you are in a bad situation but hope is alive and well. Jesus is the hope you need today. Go to Him and see what He has to say. If He were to appear to you today and talk to you, He would say that there is still hope. He would tell you that He died not only for your sins but for your hope. He died so that your hope would remain alive. He took all the problems of the world including yours and He put them to death so you could find life in Him. He is the way, the truth and the life and He is blowing life into your desperate situation now as you are reading this message. He is talking to you and smiling at you. He is encouraging you and reminding you that with Him, nothing is impossible. He is rebuking the lies of the enemy and the doubts. He is calling you to rise up and walk. Walk in faith. Leave the doubts behind. Leave the desperation behind. Leave the fears behind. Jesus is standing by your side and He is promising a new day, a new hope and a new future.
When things don’t go well, we tend to predict a bad future for ourselves. The fears we have are usually about the future. We put ourselves in a box where there is no way out. We think of how bad things are going to get. We can’t count on anything good. We believe the outcome of our present circumstances is going to be very negative. God has a different take on the matter. For Him, hope is present and it is available. What He wants us to do is to draw nearer to Him and tap into His love and His peace. He has all we need and He can give us the hope we long for. He is the hope. When I am not doing well, I get a big dose of Jesus. I turn to Him. I talk to Him. I let Him comfort me and I fix my eyes on Him. Fix your eyes on Jesus and He will fix your situation. Fix your eyes on Jesus and you will see a rebirth of hope everywhere. The One who conquered the world conquered your biggest trials. There is hope, friend! There is a lot of hope.
Jesus came to save the world and to preach good news. His good news is accompanied by the hope of a better day. Things might look bad now but they are going to get better. Jesus guarantees that. Take His word for it. Things are going to improve beautifully when you rely on Him. Put your hope in Jesus, the hope of the world. Let the hope in you speak for you. Don’t give a voice to the doubts and to the fears. Let Jesus in you talk about what’s going on. When you give Him the microphone, you will realize that every word that comes out of your mouth is a word of hope. You can’t turn to Jesus, lean on Him and not ooze positivity and joy. His joy is going to hit you and take you on a journey of hope. The joy of the Lord is your strength. You get all the power you need from the Lord. Power to make it today and power to make it tomorrow. Tomorrow is bright. Jesus will make it shine. Don’t get discouraged. Hold on to Jesus, the hope of the world. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
