There is Always Hope

Life can be filled with trials, uncertainties, and moments of deep despair, but in the midst of it all, there is always hope. As Christians, we should not be unfamiliar with attacks by unseen forces. The apostle Paul exhorts us to be prepared, “for we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places” (Eph. 6:12, NLT).


Yet God provides us with all the protection we need. Paul reminds us to “be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power” (Eph. 6:10, NLT) and put on the armor of God: the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, the sword of scripture. In addition, Paul writes, “Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in prayer” (Eph. 6:18, NLT).


In her book The Armor of God, Priscilla Shirer writes: “Prayer is the divinely authorized mechanism God has given us to tap into His power.” In uncertain and difficult times, we have a direct line to the power of God. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take precautions, but we must also remember that Christ triumphed over those unseen “rulers and authorities,” disarming them of the power to defeat us (Col. 2:15, ESV)!


When the world is in turmoil, focus on Jesus and what He offers that the world cannot provide - eternal hope! Hope is not just a fleeting emotion, but a resilient anchor that can carry us through even the darkest of storms. Remember, in every difficulty lies an opportunity for growth, and with Jesus as our guiding light, we can emerge stronger and more resilient than ever before.


Let us embrace the hope of Jesus, find solace in our shared experiences, and walk this journey of life with renewed faith and unwavering hope for today!
