Never Give Up Hope

Jeremiah 17:7-8 NIV
But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit." 

I have a question for everyone: What are you hoping for ? What are you trusting God for ? What are you expecting out of life ?

Are you looking and waiting for something wonderful to happen or your expecting to be disappointed from the beginning?

So many people are feeling so hopeless these days. HOWEVER......... Jesus did NOT die on the cross for us to be hopeless! He died so that we could be full of hope and faith!!!

Of course the devil wants to steal your hope and he is constantly feeding us full of lies! He tells us all kinds of crazy lies!!! He tells us that nothing good can happen in our life. That what we are trusting God for will never happen. He tells us to give up. If you are struggling with a difficult  situation he will tell you it will never get better. But that is just it! It is ALL lies!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And as believers we have to be God lead and know the devil is a liar!!!!! And you have to stay full of hope! God can change everything!!!!!!!

God is GOOD and he has good plans for your life!!!!!

For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 (New Living Translation)

If you will maintain your hope, especially in the midst of your battle and uncertain times, he has promised you double for your trouble!!!

Zechariah 9:12
New International Version (NIV)
Return to your fortress, you prisoners of hope;    even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you.

So make a choice today to refuse to give up your hope and REFUSE to listen to the lies of the devil!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Start expecting God to answer your prayers and do something amazing in your life!!!!
