May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
God wants to fill you with His hope today! Don’t allow Satan and his lies to discourage you today! Refuse the lies and fill your mind with the truths from God! Satan will do everything in his power to keep you down and discouraged so it will take a conscious effort to rebuke him and his lies in order for you to fully have the joy and hope God wants for you! When you hear that voice that says, “you will never be able to do that”, or “there’s no way God can fix your situation, it’s hopeless”, or “it’s impossible for me to lose this weight”, “I’ll never get married or have a baby” ~ those are all lies straight from Hell! God is the god of Hope! Nothing is impossible for God! All of those things are little things to the God of all creation!
If God has called you to it, He will certainly give you all you need to do it! He isn’t going to call you to something and then leave you hanging! He will provide on every level for you to accomplish all He is calling you to be and do! Give your cares to Him, your desires and your struggles and allow Him to take care of it all and give you victory! God loves you! He cares about every thing you are facing, small or great!
When you start to hear those lies, turn on some praise and worship music or if you don’t have access just start singing your heart out to him! Praise will remind you of who God is and it will build your faith and hope in Him! Memorize this verse in Psalm verse 42:5 “Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance!” and if you need another one: Psalm 30:11, “You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,” God doesn’t want His people to be down and depressed, He wants to give you back your joy! He wants to fill you with hope and He wants to be able to fulfill in you all that He created you to be!
Give your cares to Him today, refuse the lies of Satan and praise Him with your whole heart reminding yourself of who He is and all He can do in your life! He doesn’t want you to just have a little hope today, He wants you to abound in His hope! The best is yet to come ~ just hold on!
