“God Promises that you Need Never Lose Hope”
Hebrews 10:23 (NLT)
23 Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.
I received a message from Christian friends the other day. They were discouraged with some of the trials they were facing and needed some Christian encouragement. Despite God’s promises, despite Christ’s love, and despite our countless blessings we sometimes can still lose hope from time to time and become discouraged. If we are all honest, we have all been there. When we do, we need the encouragement of Christian friends, the life-changing power of prayer, and the truth that comes from God’s Word.
When you find yourself falling into the spiritual traps of worry and discouragement seek after God and what He has to say in his Word. Christian friends can provide encouragement and remember the words of our Savior in John 16.
John 16:33 (NLT)
33 I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth, you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
There will be times that God will seem far away, but remember God is always there waiting for you to reach out to Him.
