Keep hope and trust the Lord

2015-11-25 06:23

DO you sometimes ask yourself if there is any suffering such as the suffering afflicted on you?

Do you sometimes feel that the Lord has rejected you? Is this the reason why you weep and your eyes overflow with tears and no one is near to comfort you; no one to restore your spirit.

It feels like your wound is as deep as the sea with no one able to heal you.

Even though people have heard your groaning, there is no one to comfort you, all your enemies have heard of your distress; they rejoice.

Sometimes you feel like you have been deprived of peace, you have forgotten what prosperity is, and you may end up by concluding in your heart that your splendour and what you have hoped for from the Lord, is gone. Your spirit is down.

Let me remind you today, to bring you hope: No matter what you think, what you feel, in the midst of what you are going through Z because of the Lord’s great love you are not consumed. His compassion never fails; great is His Faithfulness!

You can say that: “The Lord is my portion, therefore I will wait for him.”

The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, the one who seeks him.

It is good to wait on Him quietly and it is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is still young.

For you can never be cast off by the Lord forever. Though He allows grief, He will show compassion, so great is His unfailing love.

Keep hoping, keep trusting, and keep your faith and love Him.

He is the God who answers in His own mysterious ways.

Keep on. Keep your eyes on Him and never let your circumstances become your reality, your reality is in Him who formed us.
