FINDING OUR HOPE IN THE LORD

“Be of good courage and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord.” – Psalm 31:24 (NKJV)
     There are times in a believer’s life when they may grow weak of heart and have their courage fails. In our heart we know what is right and pure, but we allow our hearts to become weary and as a result may begin to make poor decisions. Be encouraged by the words of the Psalmist: as long as our hope is in the Lord and not in our own resources, we should be of good courage and strong of heart.
     Every chain has a weakest link, so it stands to reason that the enemy of our soul would attack us at our weakest point. With weaknesses exposed we become vulnerable to the wiles of our adversary. This isn’t without God’s knowledge, for he knows all things. The fact is that we bring on our own misery without thinking through the consequences of our words and/or actions. God will allow such things as a means of teaching us, which should make our faith stronger.
We have a free will, meaning we can do as we please, but as Paul so aptly puts in his letter to the believers in Corinth, ‘not all things benefit us’. There are consequences attached to every action.      

     There is a spiritual war going on. I believe there are angels in battle all around us constantly. Always remember this, God has already won. Tap into Him and win your battle against the various trials you encounter throughout your walk with Him. You cannot do it alone. Place all of your hope for your now and your future in the everlasting, eternal and Almighty God.
