Don’t Lose Hope

Don’t lose hope.

The world will try to tell you that miracles are impossible. It will try to force you to conform to its limitations and forget who you’re created to be. It will lie to you, and tell you that wealth, fame, promotions–that next big thing–will satisfy the longing in your heart. It will try to convince you that you don’t need Jesus.

The world is wrong.

You could have 100 trophies on your mantel, elaborately declaring your abilities and earthly triumphs. You could own designer dresses and shoes that fill your entire closet. You could drive the fastest car, have the most money, and be the most popular person on Twitter, but none of that matters if you don’t have Jesus.

Jesus is the one and only Son of God who came into the world to save us from our sins. We all have done things we shouldn’t have, and the penalty for sin is death. Jesus loves us SO MUCH that He came to earth and lived a perfect life. Then, He chose to die for us, in our place, so we can be forgiven for our sins. When we ask Jesus to come into our lives, He becomes our Savior. Now, instead of suffering the penalty for sin, we can spend eternity with God in Heaven.

Jesus can transform your heart, and help you live the best life possible. He wants to take away your pain, worry, heartache, and fear, and replace them with health, joy, love, and faith. No matter what our situation is–no matter how hard the struggle or how large the battle–through Jesus, we can overcome. With Jesus, there is always hope. Nothing is too big for Him.

Matthew 19:26:

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

The world will try to tell you that miracles are impossible. It will try to surround you in darkness and lie to you. Don’t lose heart, and don’t lose hope! What is impossible with man is possible with God! Put your faith in Him, and stand firm against the pull of the world’s current. Your breakthrough is coming; keep trusting God and don’t lose hope.

Rise up in faith, and don’t lose hope.

Don’t lose hope.

 

Matthew 19
