Bible Reading: John 11:38-43
Memory verse: Matthew 19:26, “But Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
I t is contrary to God’s word to think that your case is hopeless. Consider Luke 1:37 says “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” In the midst of the daunting circumstances you are faced with, God is looking for you to join with Him, and trust for the “impossible”. The devil uses the surprise tactics to come at us, when we least expect, he strikes. After that, fear floods our mind. I just had this experience, I was awaiting a good report but the opposite came. The first thing that flooded my mind was that there was no way out, to just give up and throw in the towel. However, a dear sister said to me, “Step back, it is not over. Watch, in the midst of the darkness, God is going to show you a way to climb out of the dark pit.” I knew that was a word from God, and I said Amen to it. Glory to God that within an hour, the ray of hope started to flood into my situation, and I knew it would be to me according to His word.
According to 1 Corinthians 10:13, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” So, for your case not to be hopeless, you must not accept what you see as the final. You must resolutely look for a way of escape because God says there is a way out. Furthermore, do not align your words with the things happening; rather, make the word of God your confession. Finally, let the peace of God rule your heart by keeping your mind and thoughts focused on His word.
Remember, perfect peace has he whose mind is stayed on the Lord, for he trusts in Him. There are no hopeless cases with God. They are only beyond remedy when you accept them to be that way.
