Proverbs 13:12, says, "Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire is fulfilled, it is a tree of life."
Anybody out there need hope? I'm sure, including me, there are times our hope needs to be renewed. Our hope is in God. We all need to be encouraged sometimes. We also need to reach out and encourage those that need hope and point them to the "God of Hope".
The enemy will bring circumstances into our lives to try and discourage us and destroy all hope. But we serve a God that restores and forgives and gives us hope when all our hope has faded away.
Our enemy on the other hand, will come to destroy, hinder and do what he can to destroy our hope; so that we feel like no one cares, so why should I care. I might as well give up and go my own way and live my life the way I want to, for all hope is gone! My family has given up on me, God has given up on me and there is no hope for me!
These are all lies from the enemy. He is a liar! God says, return unto Me, seek Me! You will find Me. I will pardon your sins! I will not remember them no more. I will restore to you what the enemy has stolen from you. In me, you have a new beginning! I am all you will ever need. There is rest in Me. For I have come to set the captives free! I have plans for your life and a future and hope. Come unto me. Forgive your enemies, let go of the past. Let go of the hurt and pain and I will heal your broken heart and dreams and make you new! Believe in Me, believe that you can move forth in me and I will renew and restore to you what the enemy has stolen from you and make all things new!
2 Timothy 4:18, And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory forever and ever.
That is what God's Word says! That is God's promises to us!
Touch those that need their hope renewed today. Give them strength in their inner man and put a new song in their heart. Fill their soul and mind with your peace and love. May they feel your presence around them and renew their hope in You!
In Jesus Name, I pray, Amen
