Why we should always have Hope and Faith in God



As we go through life, we face all kinds of situations.  There is no-one who has not faced trouble and difficulties.  We believe that our own actions can lift us out of our difficulties but it happens sometimes that the difficulties are so great that we are overwhelmed and we lose confidence in our own abilities.  That is usually the time that we look towards God for relief.  “Only God can save me now!” is the popular feeling when circumstances are very difficult…

And God doesn’t disappoint.

There is always hope when your trust in God.  God will always help and He will always restore the things that have been taken from you.  He can mend your heartache and bring your family together.  He has the power to provide for your financial needs no matter how impossible they may seem.  He can heal your sickness and break the chains of your addictions.  Most importantly, He can give you the force to conquer any battle you may have to fight.  He knows you personally.  He knows your name.  He has numbered your days. His promise is to never leave you or fail to give you all that you need.

What is required from us to get this grace is also not difficult.  We must never lose faith in Him and we must trust that His solution for our problems would be for our ultimate good even if they seem different from what we expect.  The solution is simple. We should simply surrender our worries and anxious thoughts and let God bring us to a place of peace.   No matter where you are in your life, if you believe in Him, God has a way to reach out to you.

The promises of God are real and He has a way to work out all the things in your life.  He knows what it takes to rescue you from the pain and the struggles of this earth and how to make you stronger for having endured them.  He can do all things for He is the Creator of all that is on this earth and in the heavens.  Nothing is impossible for the Lord.   With complete knowledge and faith in God’s love, we should abandon worry and trust His grand plan, of which we are a part.

Lord has personally said in the scriptures, – “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more important than food and the body more important than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much more valuable than they?  Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”  (Bible, Matthew 6:25-27)

The truth is this, when we worry, we are showing our lack of faith in God.  I.e. we are assuming that our problems are too big for God to solve.  We are saying in effect that God is not strong enough or loving enough to help us through our trial.

When you give in to worry and fear, you are falling for the lies of Satan, who wants us to lose faith in the Lord and then it would be easy for him to destroy you.  The devil knows that God is more than enough to bring you to victory but he wants you to forget that.

We must always remember that God knew our problems and weaknesses long before we were born and he had made a way to overcome all of them.  He has a perfect plan and a purpose for your life.  Even though you may have fallen short and rebelled against Him, He can always lift you from your past and restore you to wholeness.
