Faith can turn things around in the darkest of nights. Do You Believe?
Besides hope, Abraham in hope believed, to the end that might be a father of many nations, according to that which had been spoken, “So, your offspring be.”Romans 4:18
Humbly speaking Abraham had no reason to believe in hope at all, but in the midst of his hopelessness he believed God with a living hope and rejoiced as I’d he had already received Isaac.
We have no use for hope and faith when everything appears to be bright and hopeful, as far as man’s view of things is concerned, “for why does one still hope for what he sees?” (Romans 8:24).
Believe In Hope!
But when our human reasoning is confronted with a high, thick, impenetrable wall of difficulties and the future looks gloomy and dark, then Faith finds a way, and the light shines through. That’s when it is significant believe in hope.
It is too much for people when things go against them. They become disappointed, discouraged, and worn out. They think abs speak in this spirit and are a burden to themselves and their fellow men.
Paul and several with him possessed the Spirit of faith, and in this Spirit they spoke edifying, encouraging, and comforting words. When Paul was a prisoner in Rome, he exhorted the Philippians to rejoice in the Lord always.
The more active we are in serving God, the more active Satan becomes trying to weaken and hinder us from carrying out the works of the Lord with joy. He comes on the day of adversity and paints everything black for us. But hope that shines through a living faith cannot be darkened. Faith considers the day of adversity to be a day of success, because it becomes a day of salvation.
As long as faith has not gained a firm footing in our life, we are thrown back and forth by our deceptive feelings because of unrest and anxiety, and it’s difficult for us to believe in hope. Sometimes things look bright, then suddenly everything looks dark again. However, if we become discouraged and despondent, satan has won the battle. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). “A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones” (Proverbs 17:22).
Faith Says “It Is Possible!“
Whenever human reasoning says, “it is impossible.” Faith us unreserved trust in God who lives us and who can do everything. His name is wonderful, and He performs wonders. Though a mother might forget her ow child, He cannot forget us (Isaiah 49:15).
Laziness and indifference are foreign to faith. We are to fight against everything that wants us to hinder us from attaining to the hope we look forward to with joy. He answers our prayers according to the need and longing in our heart. If we believe, we will also see and experience God’s glory
