You know God never ceases to amaze me. He is such a good Father. He is always right there to remind His children of the love that He has for us. Like a good parent He always encourages- always reminds us of who we are, who He is, and who we are in Him. “There’s no need to worry,” He says. “I’m in control. Keep your focus on Me and your hope in Me. I created the heavens and the earth and everything in them. I’ve got you!”
I know the news often looks rough. We hear of illnesses, job closures and losses as well as people giving up. However we do not concede to the circumstances or the negativity around us. It is here in the midst of darkness that God’s light in us can and will shine brightest. It is here in what often seems like hopeless times that we must be like Abraham in the bible “who against hope believed in hope!” Let’s get our hopes up and spread it everywhere we go.
So, I just want to give you this word today. “God’s got you! Believe God period!” Where ever you are today- whatever you are going through, whatever you are facing, God’s got you! Get your hopes and expectations up! You are so much more than what your circumstances say. You are far more valuable that what others even know. Get ready for a divine explosion in your life. Hold onto your faith. Don’t lose or cast away your confidence (Hebrews 10:35-37) and always keep praises to God coming from your mouth (Psalm 34).
Believe the word and promises of God. Be fully persuaded that He will do what He promised He would (Romans 4). Difficult times don’t change who He is. Every day is a new opportunity for God to shine through you and show out in you! Get ready to be elevated in the midst of difficulty. The world needs messengers of hope. The world needs people who are unafraid to rise to the occasion and step into greatness. Be a messenger of hope and inspiration. You can and you will rise to the occasion of greatness! Are you ready?
16Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,
17(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
18Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
19And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:
20He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
21And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
Until next time,
Stay encouraged and stay in God’s presence!
