Soul Food : Don't Give Up Hope


Those who hope in me will not be disappointed --

Isaiah 49 : 23

In a world where decadence prevails, chaos reigns and the only way, it seems, to get anything good is to do something bad for it, hoping in God has never been anymore necessary. Most of the time, it seems the only way out is compromise - especially when it's painted so well. Our hope runs dry & we believe there is no way God can do it anymore so we end up changing lanes...going down a path God has not set before us. However, the thing about changing lanes is you don't know what is coming up because God - who sees the bigger picture - has not led you there and numerous times, if we don't change back to the lane God has laid before us, we end up crashing our destinies. 
May this not be our portion in Jesus' name.
As children of the most high God, we need to hope in God no matter what. Yes, we live in a world that demands fast results & wants everything quick, but we are not of this world & our destines likewise are different. God knows best for us & He is faithful. Hope in Him; Hope in His Word; Hope in His promises. Don't give up hope. Therefore, as Hebrews 10:23 says, "let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful".

He knows your beginning & ending. He sees what you are going through. He knows what you need, when you need it. We don't need to worry. We make life so complicated with all our worries, fears & anxiety. Didn't God say it? If only we choose to stand in hope, holding on to His Word, knowing He is more than able.
If we hold on in hope, He tells us we will not be disappointed. This is because He will never let down all those that hold fast to Him. 

Now hope is synonymous to faith. If it is impossible to please God without faith because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him [Hebrews 11 : 6] therefore, we can't get anything from God if we don't persist in hope. It is as simple as that. 

Of course the devil - smart as he thinks he is - will try and bring temptation, lies & deceit but that is why we need to be battle ready at all times so we won't plunge into his deception & fall back on his lies. The Word should be our guide. Whatever is contrary to God's Word should be rejected.

It's hard to hold on & keep up hope but it is necessary & worth it. God will show up in your situation at the right time with your breakthrough & miracle; fulfilling all your needs; exceeding your expectations & desires and taking you to higher heights. In the mean time, hold on to Him with all your heart because He is faithful & ever so true.

He will never, ever disappoint you - I guarantee.
