There are days when even the best of the best can feel hopeless. Although we live in a nation that experiences prosperity, there are many who feel they are without hope. There are times when it feels like there is no where to go…no other options….but even in those deep, dark spaces in our life, we have to reach to the One that is the foundation of our hope – Jesus Christ. It is so amazing that there is no one on this earth who will continuously stay by your side as He does. There are so many times when you may feel like all is lost and that He does not see you or care, but He is really working all things for your good. He sometimes has to shake our nest, get us out of our comfort zone and push us into our next season. It is many times a painful experience, but if we remain steady, we will make it through.
I heard a line in a movie the other day that made me think. The character was stating how we sometimes in the moment, think that this is the worst situation possible, that it could not get any worse….but then the next week, or next month, it is much worse than that day! And when we reflect upon the previous day, we realize, that it really wasn’t that bad, and that today, now is much worse! Our pain is relative….it feeds on the present moment. Fear attempts to sabotage all sane thoughts and prevent us from taking a step forward. But as in any situation, to come out, you must take a step. Each step towards change will be rewarding and will in itself reveal its special purpose for your life. Today, do not let the enemy destroy all that you have worked for…..everything it took for you to reach this moment…..Trust in the Lord with All Thine Heart, and Lean not unto thine own Understanding. (Prov 3:5)
Prayer: Lord Jesus, Today I pray for my friend, who is hurting in a way that only you know and feel. I ask that you will reveal yourself to them and to make your unending love and mercy so evident, it will empower them to have confidence to take a step towards a new day. I thank you for your greatness and all that you do for us. Thou art a Mighty God! In Jesus name I pray…..Amen
