Looking at the chaotic things happening around the globe today, nobody can be blamed for getting scared and hopeless, especially in a clime like mine. 😁 A place where the human life isn’t secure and can’t be accounted for. So what’s our lot?
I can tell you this for sure, God wants us trust Him without holding back. He wants us to be a hundred percent ‘hope-full’.
Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Some weeks back I sustained an injury on one of my big toes and it affected the nail. I’m someone who pays extra attention to my nails and how they look. So this pain got me worried automatically and I was scared of cutting it. I eventually had to cut it after so much personal persuasion. 😁
I cut the nail and became bothered about how long it’ll take to grow back. For the first few days, I kept monitoring it daily to see if it was growing. Soon, I became tired and didn’t even bother checking anymore. Until I checked some days back and boom! My nail had grown back.
Romans 5:5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
Job was a practical example of a tree that had been cut down and his condition can be said to have been tough. He had lost everything he owned and there was no hope or encouragement from anyone. Still, he wrote with hope in his heart and things turned around for him.
Are you hopeful? If yes, then, you will blossom in due season. Is your answer no? You have to dig deep and rest in the good plan the Father has for you.
