When Hope is Lost
Do you ever feel like you have been beaten down by life and the cares of this life? God knows and cares. He sees and knows every tear you have cried. Please don’t give up, even if it is painful and unrelenting now. Keep going, God promises to work ALL things out for good who love Him and are called according to His purposes (Romans 8:28). You may have been going through intense times of suffering and lose, and you feel you cannot manage one more day. Surrender today your hurt and pain, to the One who can take your pain and redeem you. What you’re going through is just for a season, it won’t last forever. Though it may feel like forever, it will not be forever.
Get up today and declare you will be victorious over this pain or trial. Don’t react to your circumstances but act on the truth of God’s Word. Stand and be still and know that God is there. It does not always feel like God is there when we have lost hope or endured tragedy after tragedy, but God knows your situation and does not plan to leave you in this state. Would you step out today, and say to God, “Restore my hope and cause good to come out of my pain.” Just step out in faith and ask and He will hear you.
You are more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ. No matter what you have done, there is still hope. You might say, “Oh, I have messed up so many times…” Get up today and start over with Christ’s help. No matter what your circumstance looks like, you can have hope. So don’t give up or give into the lies of the enemy that would just want you to give up and lose all hope. When we lose hope, we sink into depression. Without hope there is no light but darkness.
There is hope for your situation no matter how bleak it looks. No matter how long it has been going on, or how long you have been praying. Stir up hope today in your spirit. The enemy would tell you it’s hopeless and would want you to stop believing in the goodness of God. God is good and He does have a good plan for your life.
Meditate and confess these scriptures daily:

You are my God and Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Psalm 25:5
May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you. Psalm 33:22

Find rest, o my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him. Psalm 62:5
I have put my hope in your word. Psalm 119:74
Sustain me according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed. Psalm 119:116
May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
