And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.1 Peter 5:10 NIV
Christ helps us examine our lives. He nurtures our faith, so we will find strength in the presence His love. He provides HOPE as we seek Him with all of our hearts and learn how to feel His peace.
The Bible says, “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” Sometimes we lose hope when we feel overwhelmed and forget we are lovingly held. Anxious thoughts rob the strength of our calm. But God knows the source of our weakness. And when we can’t feel the depth of His holiness, He squelches our fear and leads us back where we belong.
God has the ability to provide what we need to sustain us. And when we forget to pray, or completely step away, He knows how to guide us back where we belong. He finds the way to remind us who will handle every single thing.
We will know the love of God’s amazing grace if we seek Him, humble our hearts, trust in the power of His greatness and recognize His ability to save.
Jesus gave HOPE for tomorrow when He took the sins of the world and died for each one of us. His resurrection provides the HOPE we need to be reminded there is strength in the mention of His name. He will hear our prayers for mercy and provide what we need to handle difficult days.
As we allow Christ to dwell in us, God will move us through our doubt and help us fight each battle. He is a good, good Father! We must put our HOPE in Him. He has the power to restore, make us stronger than before and guide us every single moment of our lives.
Dear God, thank you for Your love. Humble our hearts, so we will find HOPE in You. Help us deal with weakness, so the strength of Your love will help us stay focused on You. Guide us back where we belong when we become lost. And help us not forget who will handle every single thing. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
