Focus Verses: "But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint" (Isaiah 40:31, NLT).
(Hebrews 10:35, NLT)
We must keep hope alive as we go through challenging situations of life. When we hope we have a positive expectation; we feel that things are going to turn out fine. For believers, this hope is not just wishful thinking but it is anchored in the Word of God.
If you face extremely difficult situation today, you might might feel that there is no hope. But God offers us hope for all situations. Meditate on the verses above for a while and then by faith allow God to:
1. renew your strength
2. enable you to soar like eagles
3. empower you to run and not get weary
4. help you to walk and not faint.
When we know God's love and faithfulness, we not only will keep hope alive, but bounce back from the most distressing circumstances. Sure, if you are like me and the challenges persist, there are times that you will wonder, "Will things ever turn out right?" But the truth is that even in those times, you can know deep in your heart that God is with you. As trust him, God renews you from within, you soar above challenges you face.
Prayer: "God of ALL hope, thank you for the hope you give to me in these challenging times. Today, I receive your power and love to soar above the difficulties I face. My hope and confidence is in you Lord!" Amen.
