HOPE IN THE LORD MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Hope drives us to keep trying and to keep going. The young and strong are very ambitious and have hope that drives them. However the Bible tells us that they can get weary, they can give up, they can get discouraged and even fall or completely fail. Only those who hope in the Lord will sustain their struggle to the end where they succeed. Hope in the LORD makes a difference!
Hope in anything and anyone else other than the Lord is short-lived. Hope in youthful strength fails. Hope in human promises fail. Hope in human systems and efforts will fail. That is why, the best among human beings, the young and strong, will try but end up stumbling and falling. Only those who hope in God will make it to the successful end. Hope in the LORD makes a difference!
Hope in God connects us to God’s power that enables us to wait until we achieve. Hope in God connects us with power to do what must be done. God does not fail. God delivers all His promises. All who hope in God will never be disappointed. That is why hoping in God is superior to any other hope. Hope in the LORD makes a difference!
Human ability is limited. The following statement is the greatest lie – “no human is limited.” Human beings are totally limited. Only God can make a way across the Red sea, only God can provide water from a dry desert rock, only God can make one boys lunch feed 5000 men, only God can heal and raise the dead. God goes beyond where human limitations stop. God has more options when we run out of options. When we hope in God we have limitless options to excel. Hope in the LORD makes a difference!
What have you been trying and now feel like giving up? On what are you losing hope? Is it studies? Is it work or business? Is it a relationship? Is it your health? Is it a financial situation? Don’t hope in human promises and abilities. Do your best and prayerfully without ceasing trust God to deliver you. Hope in the LORD makes a difference!
May our hope in God make a difference and grant us unprecedented success. In Jesus name, Amen!
