TO THE BIBLE Romans 15:4 GNB
“Everything written in the Scriptures was written to teach us, in order that we might have hope through the patience and encouragement which the Scriptures give us.”
“I’m so confused right now.” “I don’t have anyone to help me.” “My future looks so bleak.” These are some of the thoughts that run riot in the minds of many young people today. Some even go ahead to voice such thoughts to anyone who cares to listen. As a child of God, you shouldn’t look for sympathy or announce your helplessness; rather proclaim your salvation, your triumphs and your successes. That pain, challenge, or trouble is only for a moment, so don’t talk about it; talk to it and declare your victory!
Learn to look in the right direction. Look to the blessed hope that’s in the Lord Jesus Christ. He’s not a stranger to you; He’s your Lord and Saviour! So, hold on to your hope, for He’s the anchor of your soul.
The Bible says the expectation of the righteous shall not be cut off (Proverbs 23:18). Your expectation is unique to God. So, always be expectant and excited for the greater glory. If you have difficulties in any area—perhaps at school, in your health, or at home—don’t give up on having a change, because there’s hope for you. Christ in you is the hope of glory. Therefore, be positive, and walk with a sanctified mind, and see all things from the vantage point of God’s Word.
Proverbs 24:14; Jeremiah 29:11; Romans 15:13
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for the blessed hope I have in Christ. Your grace is sufficient for me in all things, and I see through your Word and function with the mind-set of the righteous. Thank you for making me the expression of your righteousness, and effulgence of your glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
