In need of hope?

And no one will take away your joy

John 16:21-22 – A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.

Know and understand the season that you are in. Are you going through labour pains? Joy will soon follow and no one can take that joy away. Sometimes we find ourselves in hard times but we must never be hopeless. Right now you may even be facing bouts of depression but you’re not alone. The God who reached down low to save you has not forgotten you. Abandon yourself in His grace by spending time alone with Him and do this this one thing, listen. ‘But take heart! I have overcome the world’ Love and grace to you.

Give your confidence an assignment

Hebrews 10:23 – Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.

Face this day with confidence oozing from your spirit. You are from above and all of heaven is behind you. The enemy is under your feet and the goodness and mercy have determined to follow you today. Your steps have been ordered by the Lord. Steps, one after the other. Bit by bit. Only as you wait on Him will He give you the strength for today. Have a powerful day as you place your confidence in God.
