Hopeless situations are meant to strengthen you #Hope


Would you still believe if the walls tumbled down, If night start getting cold would you stay around
When life starts getting hard could you fly above the fire, Or would you rather take an easy road to get
To where we are? Lecrae

Well, everyone faces tough times, life is full of ups and downs, mountains high and valleys low. The only sure guarantee is that things will always change either positively or negatively. But how do you get back and move forward again? Would you rather blame God? your parents? your boyfriend? your employer?

There are many shortcuts people take to reach a destination to avoid all the furnaces and challenges that were meant to purify their character and make them better.

I know I sound like a man who has never faced any serious hopeless situation and that might be true; in comparison to some real life stories I’ve heard, my troubles just fade away.

I could mention severe afflictions people have faced in the past, face now or will face in the future and yes, there are many more grimmer situations people are in and if we were to begin writing them here, your tears would not allow you to finish reading this article.

That’s why we must have hope that though it’s dark now, the storm will clear soon and the sun will shine brightest again. If things are bad then that’s not the end, don’t loose hope, don’t pick that rope, don’t swallow that poison, please drop that bottle of alcohol that you believe will numb that pain or make you forget, drop that syringe, walk away from that temptation to steal, run away from that shortcut and follow due process.

Pre marital or extra marital sex will not solve your problems or save your marriage, neither cursing or reckless behaviors. Loosing faith in God will make the situation even worse, it’s like burning the only bridge to the promised land.

Make up your mind that nothing can ever bring you down. Any negative thing or hopeless situation that comes your way is meant to strengthen you, don’t fret or fear our hope is alive.

Romans 8:38-39(the Message) So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us.

Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture:

They kill us in cold blood because they hate you.
We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.

None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.


Have a HOPEFUL day!
