We live in a world defined by perception. We can perceive things any way we want to. What some see as a struggle, others see as an opportunity. Bill Johnson says, “He who has the greatest hope, will have the greatest impact.”
We can never lose hope. Hope is what drives us. It compels us to keep going. I was sitting in church today and my pastor shared that no one and nothing is beyond hope.
I want you to take a look at the following verse and think on it for a minute.
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
I believe God can do anything. But it is more than just a belief. I have seen Him do the impossible.
Take a look at the following photo. It’s a picture of me preaching last week at Teen Challenge. I was honored to speak to those men and encourage them in the things of God. I shared with them the story of my best friend Darron Luhrsen who committed suicide two years ago. Darron was a graduate of Teen Challenge.
If you look in the upper left hand corner of the photo there is a verse painted on the wall. Revelation 12:11 And they overcame the devil by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives unto death.
That was Darron’s life verse. The moment this photo was taken, I was telling Darron’s story.
I left a very good job to pursue a career in ministry. It has been amazing but filled with many challenges. I have questioned whether or not I made a mistake. I believe God works in the most unique ways to show us He is in all things. To me, this photo was a sign from God that I am doing what He wants me to do.
We all are hoping for big things in our lives and we never know when they will come. But I want to plant a seed of hope in your heart.
What if… The job you are hoping for is going to open up this week.
What if… The love of your life is just around the corner.
What if… The business you are starting is about to catch the break you need.
What if… The person you have been praying for is going to get their breakthrough.
What if… God did what you have been crying out to Him to do.
What if.. The Mountain you are staring at is about to pick up and be destroyed.
What if…. The time is closer than you think.
Have hope and keep your heart in His.
The best is yet to come,
