Have you lost all your hope for whatever you are facing today? What have you been praying and hoping for? Perhaps for a spouse to come to their senses and return home to their family? Are you hoping for your marriage to be touched by your Lord suddenly, soon, and then in the future you both will serve the Lord? Are you praying for a financial breakthrough with getting a job, selling a house or receiving a raise? Do you dare hope and believe? Of course! Believe in the mighty awesome God! Do not give up on God! Do not look at your present circumstances. Put your hope in the Word of God! Stand on the promises of God!
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5
What is “Hope?” In the Nelson’s Three-In-One Bible Reference Companion it is defined as: Reliance on God’s blessing provision; the expectation of future good. Another dictionary said: The confident expectancy. Genuine hope is not wishful thinking, but a firm assurance about things that are unseen that are still in the future. You and I must stand firm in our faith, waiting for and expecting a spiritual breakthrough.
But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. Romans 8:24-25
The spiritual testing and growing in the Lord is the patience, waiting for God’s timing, when yesterday seemed the perfect day to solve all your problems! That is why you and I must put our hope and faith together to be able to know that as we believe, we walk in faith and have hope in the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, knowing His timing will be perfect.
No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame. You are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Psalm 25:3, 5
I pray that you will reread and keep these special scriptures and promises from God in your Bible to remind you of God’s hope. We must be confident about whom we are believing in, putting our faith in and are trusting in. Who is that? Our Lord God Almighty, the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. The God who sent His only Son to die on the cross, shedding His Blood as the sacrifice for our sins. Then Jesus Christ arose from the dead showing God’s mighty power, defeating death and the enemy. You and I must stand firm in God’s Word and on His promises.
“For nothing is impossible with God.” Luke 1:37
We receive email daily of victories and in the next email of a divorce that was not stopped or blocked. How can I explain? I cannot. But I do remember that Bob and I were divorced. God allowed us both to go through a divorce and adultery with much pain and suffering, for us to come to know the Lord in a way that we had never known Him before. I sought the Lord. Bob denied His Lord and His commands.
I started standing on the promises of God. Bob started over with a new life. I started praying and believing every Word that was in the Bible and started speaking faith, having hope for the unforeseen future of God’s victory in our marriage. Bob asked me to stop praying. Yes, everyone thought I was crazy, not coping, in denial, and a fanatic. Now, over twenty years later, we are seeing standers saved, prodigal spouses repenting, and children learning and believing in the Word of God, and then Mommy or Daddy coming back home!
“Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!” Luke 1:45
What did we do? We became witnesses for our Lord Jesus Christ, that His grace, mercy, love and compassion is sufficient for you as you are facing your devastating circumstances. We shared our faith and hope by passing on our personal testimony, so others around the world will have a personal relationship with their Lord Jesus Christ. We want you to surrender your heart and life over to your Lord Jesus Christ for Him to be able to have divine intervention in changing every complex problem that you have due to your marriage problems.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort 2 Corinthians 1:3-7
I pray that our Heavenly Father will meet your needs today, as well as those of every other stander. Now pray this prayer:
“Lord, may You become my El Shaddai, The All-Sufficient One, for me and all who are standing for restoration of their marriages. Thank You Lord, for becoming my Jehovah-jireh: The Lord who provides. God, become my Jehovah-rapha: The Lord who heals. God, become my Jehovah-shalom: The God who will give me peace in the midst of all of my storms. Lord, I hurt. I am scared. I am crying out to You, Lord, to become my Jehovah-raah: The Lord is my Shepherd. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.”
We know of your pain, sorrow and the uncertainty of your future. Our Lord God is the only One who will never leave you nor forsake you. Seek His face, asking for His wisdom, knowledge and understanding for all your circumstances that you face right now. He will never fail you!
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
