Hopeless or not God is there!

Do you believe God exists in what you may consider a "hopeless" situation? Hopeless is a strong word isn’t it?  “Hopeless” takes away our strength, fills us with fear and doubt. God tells us to "Be strong. Take courage. Don't be intimidated. Don't give them a second thought because God, your God, is striding ahead of you. He's right there with you. He won't let you down; he won't leave you." Deuteronomy 31:6

So what can brings us out of these “hopeless” situations? We must be constant with God because he is constant with us. As we seek and listen, the doors are opened and our path is made straight, hope then follows. Remember 2 Corinthians 4:17 "For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all."   If God is truly in you; don't worry about tomorrow for He is right alongside you today, and He is not going anywhere. God wants us to rely on him alone, seek His hope, and allow Him to anchor us.

So how do we stay constant with God? We talk to Him. You’ve heard stories about how shipwreck survivors, marooned on a desert island, put desperate messages into bottles and threw them back out into the surf. Talk about long shots! For all they knew, those messages were never going to connect with anybody. Lot of people view prayer in the same way. “Nobody’s listening and nobody’s coming to help” overtake their thoughts and they feel hopeless.  The God who created us and redeemed us is also interested in helping us. Here is his promise: “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us” (1 John 5:14).

God hears every attempt we make to communicate with Him whether it’s praying, singing, whispering, shouting, or even thinking. I love the story of Abraham’s Servant Finds a Wife for Isaac.  In Genesis 24 Abraham servant promised he would bring back a wife for Isaac.  In verse 12 “Then he prayed, “Lord, God of my master Abraham, make me successful today, and show kindness to my master Abraham.” Then in verse 15 “Before he had finished praying, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder.”  Did you catch that?  “Before he had finished praying”, God answered before he even finish praying for it.  God knows what’s on your mind. He is not only listening He is already working on it. How secure is your anchor with God?  Do you stay constant with him, believing he is constant with you? How about talking with Him right now?

This is my Prayer: God please be my anchor. Holy Spirit guide me into the hope I can have in You.  God give me confidence in You and the faith to walk in that confidence. Lord I know You are in control, will protect, and guide me.  Jesus you know my thoughts and hear my prayers.  Thank You for already answering them.  In Jesus name, Amen.
