When you have taken the last step that you think you can take, there is still hope. When you have reached what you say is absolutely the very last destination you will ever reach, just let me take a moment to remind you of something that you might have forgotten while on your journey, there most certainly is ‘still’ hope. Though it seems that all hope may be lost, when you least expect it, it is there for you.
If you feel as though you have given the last bit of advice you can ever give, there is still hope for more, if it seems as though you are no longer able to care for anyone at all, there is hope. There is hope for you when no one else thinks there is, there is hope for you in the darkest pits of this world, and yes I have to say that absolutely there is hope even when you don’t deserve a second chance, even if you have failed at everything else, you still have hope. Somehow it’s there when you need it the most and deserve it the least, could it be that God cares about his children that much, that he would be so gracious and kind to extend hope to us even though it is certain that we do not deserve one ounce of mercy?
Absolutely, it most certainly is. Why? For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever ‘believeth’ in him should ‘not’ perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) “Everlasting” Eternity, Forever, on and on and on and on and on and on and on! IF – ONLY we would just BELIEVE that HE IS, he is what? He is our LOVE, he is our LORD, he is our GOD, he is our LIGHT he is our JOY, he is our STRENGTH he is the TRUTH, he is the WAY, he is the LIFE, he is EVERYTHING, he IS ‘EVERLASTING’ he is the beginning and the end, he is eternity he is forever, he is HOPE. When we least expected it he was our hope, he came into this dying world and he SAVED it, he gave us new life, he gave us new faith, he gave us new air to breath, new light to see and my friends, he gave us HOPE.
Our Hope Lies In Christ –
I may have mentioned this before on my radio show, but I do not believe that I ever have written about it on my blog post, there is an old song (bet you thought I was gonna say ‘there is still hope’ didn’t ya? Fooled you.) that my grandparents often sing, they learned it from one of their old Pastor’s from when they first got into church, (many moons ago, no, just kidding, only one.) it explains how there is only one hope that we have, and that would be hope in Jesus Christ. It is entitled “Jesus My Hope Is In You” in the lyrics it goes on to say that there is no one else who could possibly carry us through (and if I may elaborate) no one else could ever carry us through such dark times of this wicked world that we face as Christ can, no one else has the power to help us overcome evil with good and no one else deserves praise and honor as he.
Though there are times when satan may try and tempt us to give up and walk away from the path that God has set out before us, we cannot allow him to fool us into believing that what he says is true. He will try and trick us into believing that there is no hope, that our lives aren’t worth much, or anything for that matter. He will laugh at us and get us to feel terrible about ourselves, he will ‘try’ and make us worry about every little thing that you can imagine and he will try to make you think that God doesn’t care about you, that God does not love you. That you aren’t able to be saved from all your sins and before you know it “IF” you let him get in your head, you will soon become a victim to evil mind play of the devil himself.
When you’re down and discouraged, and feeling alone, a beggar an outcast, or a man with no home, know that in one special moment your life can be made new, because there is still hope. In Jesus alone. The other day I became worried about something, so I decided to call and find out the outcome so I wouldn’t have to worry anymore, when I got off the phone with the people I wanted to talk with it became clear to me that there was no reason to be so worried, not just yet anyways. And what became even more clear to me was the fact that there was still hope for me. Thus the inspiration for this blog post was born, we all need a little hope in our lives, living in these days don’t we?
We could use it. If you find yourself in a predicament that causes you to start worrying, fear not, remember that even if it doesn’t seem as though it’s there, it is. Hope will always be there, and you will always be able to find it, no matter how big or small the situation is or no matter how unlikely it is that there be any chance at all. I promise you that even if it’s a very small thread, it will be there and it will be something that will help you make it through, it will be what gets you to your next destination and it will be what gets you to the finish line of this race to glory.
Thank you for reading today’s post, I hope that it has blessed you in some special way my friends, until the next time we blog I pray for you to be continuously be treated the way that you treat others on a daily basis. God bless and as always…
