HOPE IS CALLING


God wants to fill you with the fullness of Himself, to deliver your soul, mind and emotions from the despair of life and paint a brand new image of the future He plans for you and yours. God promise hope for His people, and this glorious promise belongs to I and you to own it in perilous times;

16Thus says the LORD, “Restrain your voice from weeping And your eyes from tears; For your work will be rewarded,” declares the LORD, “And they will return from the land of the enemy.”There is hope for your future,” declares the LORD, “And your children will return to their own territory (Jeremiah 31:16-17)

Hope is an earnest expectation of good
===> The twist and turns in destiny journeys can take a breath out of your lungs and steals away the beautiful image of your glorious destination which was colorful painted into your heart by the Spirit of God, to be replaced with fear, uncertainty and a distorted image of the future by Satan. The believer has no reason to hit the quit-bell, throw the towel in the air or consider his or her position of uncertainty as fate. In Christ Jesus, we can draw the ever increasing colorful riches of turnaround grace as we place our complete trust in Him and refrain from negativity and the voice of weeping.

Job was robbed of his wealth and family, but in the midst of his predicament he found solace in his God. He hit the dead end of life where only Jehovah could reach and activate purpose and destiny when Satan thought that was the end of the story ===> …6″Turn Your gaze from him that he may rest Until he fulfills his day like a hired man. 7″For there is hope for a tree, When it is cut down that it will sprout again, And its shoots will not fail. 8″Though its roots grow old in the ground And its stump dies in the dry soil … (Job 14:6-7)

I know it my friend! When the future becomes so blurred, it’s like a driver on the wheels of the latest model of Mercedes without fog lights, going through a tunnel clouded with darkness and fog. The driver is in the latest model of Mercedes, but he is limited from clear path to his destination.

Beloved, you are a new creation; a latest model of Christ Jesus on earth…your ability to navigate through the dark tunnels of life depends on the light of Christ. It is in His light that we can see light. When we shift our focus from Him as the expectation of our lives through His great love for us, life loses it flavor and the future becomes pointless.

Here is the good news…God does not condemn you in your mistakes, neither does He leave you in the middle of the road to hassle through life on your own. I am persuaded and convinced that He who has begun a good work in you shall finish His purpose in your life until Christ returns. He is our companion and a friend who strengthens the weak and the weary and gives them strength like that of an eagle to soar up with wings against the odds and the limitation.

Will you let Jesus takes the wheel from your hands, my friend? I know how we sometimes thinks; “life is too much a mess for God to touch it”. If He can’t handle it, then don’t think you can make it work through yourself efforts. Our Savior stooped low in His earthly ministry and ministered to lepers, the dead, the rejected and the unclean sinful men, which was contrary to the law for Him to have been that personal to such ostracized men to give them hope to life a fruitful life. Your mess is not so messy to limit the power of His love to induce hope into your hopeless situation. ===> For we have all received from his fullness one gracious gift after another. (John 1:16 NET)

Carrie Underwood song, Jesus Takes the Wheel has become a fresh breath to a hopeless society which is bound into self and it sense of emptiness and apathy seeking Christ to steer her affairs into a purposeful living. Jesus is the answer for the world today…from the poor ghetto man to the crème de la crème living in a castle.

She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati, On a snow white Christmas Eve Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy with the baby in the backseat Fifty miles to go and she was running low on faith and gasoline It’d been a long hard year

She had a lot on her mind, and she didn’t pay attention She was going way too fast
Before she knew it she was spinning on a thin black sheet of glass She saw both their lives flash before her eyes She didn’t even have time to cry She was so scared

She threw her hands up in the air

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can’t do this on my own, I’m letting go
So give me one more chance

Save me from this road I’m on Jesus take the wheel
It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder, And the car came to a stop
She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat sleeping like a rock And for the first time in a long time She bowed her head to pray

She said I’m sorry for the way I’ve been living my life
I know I’ve got to change
So from now on tonight
Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can’t do this on my own, I’m letting go
So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I’m on Oh, Jesus take the wheel

My Prayer For You: Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace AS YOU BELIEVE IN HIM so that you may abound in HOPE by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13 NET
