Hopeful!

Hopeful!

Jeremiah_17-7-2: Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.

I Samuel 12:16-22

 

Imagine you were driving your car and the fuel got finished, or you discovered you have a flat tyre, how do you feel? The position where people want to work but there is no tool, can be disturbing as well. The Israelites, under the command of King Saul and Jonathan, came to fight against the Philistines, but had no weapon to fight with. They had to go a long way to sharpen their weapons for the war. They even had to go to their enemies, the Philistines, to sharpen them. It was really a bad situation, but not hopeless.

 

Variously, we have come into situations that got us down-cast, where nothing appeared to be working for us. In fact, we, find that which should have been an easy ride suddenly turned sour. Things may seem very bad sometimes, but it is not totally hopeless.

 

The case of the woman with the issue of blood was bad, but not hopeless [Matt. 9:20-22].The lame man who had been sick for 38 bad years and could not get into the pool [John 5:5-8] waiting for the stirring of the waters by the angel was bad, but not hopeless. The siege of Samaria in those days was a bad situation that brought about severe famine where people ate their own children, was bad but not hopeless (2Kings 6:24ff).The case of dead Lazarus for four days stinking [John 11:39] was terribly bad, but not hopeless.

 

Your situation may be bad by your assessment, but it is not as bad as you think it is because the Lord will not forsake you in your situation. Even your sins are not seen by the Lord as a reason to punish you; it is your rejection of salvation that will send you into judgment. The prodigal son’s situation was bad but not hopeless. The Lord is always merciful as we have seen in the case of the Israelites and the examples alluded to here. So The Lord will not forsake you as long as a mother cannot forsake her child.

 

MEMORY VERSE:
1 Samuel 12:22– For the Lord will not forsake His people for His great name’s sake: because it hath pleased the Lord to make you His people.

 

PRAYER:
Lord, let Your rod and staff comfort me every day of my life whether, in the storm or in the time of peace, for in Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Matt 20
Psalm 106-107

  1. Shout for joy to God, all the earth!
    2 Sing the glory of his name;
    make his praise glorious.
    3 Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!
    So great is your power
    that your enemies cringe before you.
    4 All the earth bows down to you;
    they sing praise to you,
    they sing the praises of your name.”[a]

    5 Come and see what God has done,
    his awesome deeds for mankind!
    6 He turned the sea into dry land,
    they passed through the waters on foot—
    come, let us rejoice in him.
    7 He rules forever by his power,
    his eyes watch the nations—
    let not the rebellious rise up against him.

    8 Praise our God, all peoples,
    let the sound of his praise be heard;
    9 he has preserved our lives
    and kept our feet from slipping.
    10 For you, God, tested us;
    you refined us like silver.
    11 You brought us into prison
    and laid burdens on our backs.
    12 You let people ride over our heads;
    we went through fire and water,
    but you brought us to a place of abundance.

    13 I will come to your temple with burnt offerings
    and fulfill my vows to you—
    14 vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke
    when I was in trouble.
    15 I will sacrifice fat animals to you
    and an offering of rams;
    I will offer bulls and goats.

    16 Come and hear, all you who fear God;
    let me tell you what he has done for me.
    17 I cried out to him with my mouth;
    his praise was on my tongue.
    18 If I had cherished sin in my heart,
    the Lord would not have listened;
    19 but God has surely listened
    and has heard my prayer.
    20 Praise be to God,
    who has not rejected my prayer
    or withheld his love from me!

    Thank You!

  2. questioned him, “Why then do you baptize if you are not the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?”

    26 “I baptize with[a] water,” John replied, “but among you stands one you do not know.

    27 He is the one who comes after me, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.”
