He Won’t Let Go

“For He, God, Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let you down or relax My hold on you! Assuredly not!” ‬ ‭Hebrews 13:5 Amplified Version

Jesus is bigger than your situation.

He will not leave you without support.

He will not leave you helpless.

He will not relax His hold on you.

He will make a way where there seems to be no way.

I am praying for you today. 

Hope Full

god-will-make-a-way

Where you place your hope is important.

If you put your hope in yourself, you will be disappointed – you are human.

If you place your hope in another person, you will be disappointed – they are human.

If you place your hope in hope itself, it is a powerless, empty idea – like a wish. 

Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
Psalm‬ ‭25‬:‭5‬ NIV

Put your hope in God.

Jesus is real, bigger than your situation and does more than just offer you hope, he offers you the truth to walk in.  He teaches you how to walk in it.

He empowers you to be brave, to see his vision for your life and rest in his loving arms while you wait.

My prayer for you today is that you would be filled with the Holy Spirit and walk in his truth.  I believe that your questions will be answered and the path will open up before you when the time is right.

May your hope quotient be full and heart secure in Jesus as you tackle the daily tasks of living and bring glory to Him in everything that you do today.

 

God Can Make a Way

Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”

John‬ ‭11‬:‭43-44‬ NIV

God can make a way where there seems to be no way.

Lazarus was dead. His body wrapped tightly in grave clothes and laid to rest. The world had already moved on, the end of the story already written. It was over.

But the story was not over for God.

Just when Mary and Martha thought that it was too late, Jesus came and did the most unexpected thing: he raised Lazarus from the dead. He had someone roll away the stone and then called him out.

In one of the most remarkable passages of scripture, Jesus speaks to death and it is defied. It is powerless before the commanding Word of the Son of God.

You may think that your story has already been written.  That it is over. That where you are right now is where you will always be. That your usefulness, your marriage, your ministry, your job, your purpose, your hopes lay dead and lifeless at your feet.

Jesus still defies death. You may think the story is over but God doesn’t.

He will call life from death and unbind the grave clothes that cling.

He will call your name, remind you who you are and whose you are.

He will change the ending. 

He will resurrect relationships, restore callings, redefine life as you know it and move you into the light.

The story of Lazarus is more than an example of a miracle, it is a proclamation of the power of Jesus to raise the dead and reminder to us today that all death means nothing in the light of His love.

When fear rises up to tell you that your story is already over, begin to loudly proclaim that in Christ your story has only just begun.
