#WIFE: Stay Hopeful

 

Hope.jpg

Scripture says “When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn’t do but on what God said he would do. And so he was made father of a multitude of peoples… ” – Romans 4:18 MSG

There’s this scene from “Ice Age: Continental drift”, where after the continent splits, Manny, Diego & Sid, now separated from their family and friends were trying to make their way through the storm and at a point, Manny says, more like screams, “just keep your eyes on the horizon” and Diego screams back, “I can’t find the horizon”, lol, funny not funny.

Ice Age
Diego, Sid & Manny

Perhaps, you are in a storm of life, you know, and like Diego, you practically can’t find the horizon, there seems to be no way out, hold on to hope, trust God, He will do what He’s said He will do.

He says, “No one who hopes in Me ever regrets it.” (Isaiah 49:23MSG)

Stay hopeful.

#WIFE: A Love Note

“I’ve never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love!” – God (Jeremiah 31:3 MSG)

You are loved with an everlasting, unfailing love.

Rest in this love today, and when you are tempted to fear, the present, the future or even the past, choose to remember that you are loved, there’s no fear in love.

God loves you, He says to not fear, He’s got you.

Choose love, lose fear.

#WIFE: Keep On Believing

Keep on believing.jpg

I want to encourage you with the words of Jesus to Jarius when people came to tell him that his daughter had died.

The little girl, though critically ill, was apparently alive before he came to plead with Jesus to come heal her and whilst they were on their way to the house, there was a slight delay as they encountered the woman with issue of blood, it was while that was going on that people from the house came to tell Jairus, your daughter is dead, don’t bother Jesus now. Hmm. (Mark 5:21-35 paraphrased)

She was alive when he left, now she’s dead, that’s from bad to worse.

Isn’t death like the height of it? It seemed hopeless from then but not when Jesus is involved.

Mark 5:36 says;

Overhearing but ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear; only keep on believing. (AMPC)

As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. (KJV)

Jesus overheard what they were talking about and said to the leader, “Don’t listen to them; just trust me.” (MSG)

What are you saying Jesus? It’s over, she’s (its) dead, I messed up big time, I made a mistake, I’m too old now, I’m already born into this family, I already missed the opportunity, society says I should be married by so and so age  but I’m way passed that age now, they say if I’ve not done so and so by a certain age, then I’ve failed, there’s no way this or that can happen for me anymore, I don’t see a way, its hopeless now.

Well, Jesus says, be not afraid, keep on believing, just trust me.

Dear reader, whatever it is, that may be going in your life, looks dead, hopeless, people may even be saying, it’s over, it’s not going to happen…

I pray you choose to not be afraid, to not fear, to not listen to them, to keep looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith, it’s not over until He says so, He is the way so there’s always a way, just trust Him, keep on believing, “for nothing, you see, is impossible with God.” (Luke 1:37)

It is well.

This too, whatever it is, shall pass, better days are up ahead, so you’ve got to keep going, you’ve come this far, you can’t stop now, you can’t let these small potatoes stop you, whatever difficulty you may be facing, can’t last forever.

When God is involved, what can’t be resolved?

God involved.jpg

Is anything too hard for the Lord?

The Lord who parted the red sea when the Israelites thought they were at a dead-end.

The Lord who kept Noah and his family alive in a flood that destroyed the whole world.

The Lord who gave a couple a child in their old age.

The Lord who caused a virgin to be with child.

The Lord who made and still makes barren women to be joyful mothers of children.

The Lord who restored everything that Job lost with so much more.

The Lord who fed 5000 people with 5 loaves and 2 fishes and there were leftovers.

The Lord who speaks to the storm and it obeys.

The Lord who walked upon the sea.

The Lord who raised a four-day old dead man.

The Lord who opens blind eyes & deaf ears, heals the sick.

The Lord who saves us.

The Lord who has done, does and will keep doing wonderful works.

The Lord who was, is and is to come.

Is there any situation He can’t turn around?

Is there anything He can’t do? (Think about it for a moment.)

Is there anything really? Nothing, you see, is impossible with God.

Have faith.

Trust God.
