THE FORCE OF HOPE PART III
“For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.” – Ecclesiastes 9:4
The fact that you can read this piece means that there is hope for you. If God (the creator of all creations and the Giver of life) says that there is hope for you, it means that something good and wonderful is imminent for you. It means that what He prepared for you is about to be delivered but the only reason that you may miss it is if you decide to lose hope before the delivery of the “package”.
Brethren, as long as you are still breathing, there is hope for you. More importantly, as long as you are joined to the Living God, your hope is intact. The devil that has not been able to terminate your life before now is not strong enough to block your blessings. God is saying to you “keep your hope alive; you shall not be disappointed”. Please note that your hope defines your expectation and your manifestation is a function of your expectation.
“He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry. He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man. The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.” – Psalm 147:9-11
Friends, God knows you; He knows your name; He knows what you are going through now, He knows the challenges confronting you. He is not unaware of your situation. He does not just know all those things and much more concerning you; He is able and willing to fix things for you. You are more important and treasured by God than beasts and ravens which cry; the same God that gives beasts and young ravens their food is mindful of you. Let your hope remain intact in His mercy; He takes delight and pleasure in those that hope in His mercy.
There is nothing wrong in personal development for better future experience; there is nothing wrong in building up capacity for expected change of story, it is not a sin to take steps in anticipation for the best ahead. However, our hope most be in God who is able to make all efforts yield amazing result and even go beyond what our skills, intellects and strengths can deliver.
The best is around the corner! Great things are about happening to you.
