I wonder if anyone reading this feels hopeless. If you, like I, have waited a long time for something and your heart feels sick.
If you are a Bible follower giving up hope is not an option because believing in God is also believing in hope. No situation or challenge is too big for God.
Sure, hopelessness may comes to visit, especially in the middle of the night at 3 am (what is it about that time?)
Problems, especially those that linger with no clear solution in sight, can cause us to despair if we don’t trust God’s bigger plan and hang on to His promises. As believers, God works in all things for good, even things we don’t understand.
Hope is anticipating God’s goodness. It does mean that things will work out how we want them, but instead, believing God has a better plan. Hope is based on God’s character, not ours. God’s purposes are good; therefore, His process is good.
There are always problems to fixate on, but there is also God’s hope that we can trust. A hope that does not disappoint because God is at work in the wait. The Bible gives us the voice we need—fighting words of hope that keep us going in the right direction. Romans 15:13, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
