Throughout the year I have been doing the â€œpower of hope revivalâ€ around the UK, and we have seen many souls baptised into the body of Christ. Everywhere there are people who need hope, their joy has gone. Did you know God has given you everything you need in order to enjoy your life? Think about that for a minute. What is keeping you from living life to the full? You may not be in the home you want. You may not have the exact job you would like. Maybe youâ€™re single and really want to be married. If you focus on these temporary things, it opens the door to comparison, frustration and self-pity.
Having big dreams is important. Itâ€™s good to want to increase, but if you start comparing yourself to others it will steal your joy. If you donâ€™t learn to be happy where you are, youâ€™ll never get to where you want to be. But if youâ€™ll choose to be happy, refuse self-pity and refuse to complain, then you are sowing good seeds for God to take you where He wants you to be in your future.
Today, let God direct your steps. He will give you a future and a hope. Take joy in knowing that He is working all things together for your good, according to His divine plan. Stay in faith, focus on Him and obey His commands. Soon, youâ€™ll see those new doors open, so you can walk boldly into the place of blessing God has in store for you!
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”(Romans 12:12, NIV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, today I have decided to put my hope and trust in You. Father, I know that You are working all things together for my good, Iâ€™m desperate for real consistent joy. God, I refuse self-pity, I refuse comparing myself with others. Lord, I choose joy and Your divine plan that You have prepared for me now and always, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
