Do you ever feel like you could use an extra measure of hope? We are on this earth which is full of problems. We are either in the middle of a problem, just recovering from one or about to enter a new one. This world is wired to have difficulty and trials. According to the Bible these problems build the faith of the Christian who turns to the Lord and believes Him for the answer.
There is HOPE for us. I am beginning a new Beth Moore workbook called The Patriarchs ~ Encountering the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Beth points things out from the Scriptures that I had overlooked, which opens my eyes to see wonderful things. God gives me the Spirit of wisdom and revelation causing His Word to leap from the pages and into my heart.
Through this study I've seen how Lot was rescued from captivity; he and all his possessions were brought back by Abram and 318 of his trained men. They, "...recovered all the goods, his relative Lot, and the women and other people." Genesis 14:16. ALL was restored back to Lot. Through the blessing of God ALL can be recovered in your life too. Let's not forget this.
When we have a problem or trial that seems so big that there is no way out, then it's time to look to the ONE who created all things and say, "Lord, You brought me to this point. I don't know what to do. Iwill throw the responsibility onto You now to get me out of this bondage, this captivity. Rescue me Lord." Wait on the Lord. He will provide. He is faithful. Romans 8:31 "God is for us, who can be against us?
Romans 8:28 says "All things work together for good, to them that love God." Trials are not fun. They are difficult. I hate problems, but I am learning to turn to the Lord as King David did and say, "For the King trusts in the Lord; through the unfailing love of The MOST HIGH God, he will not be shaken." Psalm 21:7 May God bless you dear blogging friends, today, and give you HOPE if you need it. KATHI
