Have Hope This Season

So, after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support and strengthen you and he will place you on a firm foundation. -1 Peter 5:10 NLT

Just one call, a job termination, the inability to buy Christmas gifts for those you love, can catapult you from a smooth sailing cruise to a scary ride you never imagined. Within minutes your high spirits can turn into desperate pleads to escape. Although God loves you, He does not shelter you from all life’s calamities.

If you are currently experiencing a rough ride through life, trust that God is with you. Just because you are facing challenges doesn’t mean that God has turned His back on you or that He has forgotten you.

During this wondrous holiday season it is imperative that you hold tightly to your hope in the Lord. Your faith, trust and hope in Him will enable you to rise above the bleak circumstances encompassing you.

As you faithfully place your circumstances in His hands, He will renew your strength, lift your spirit and give you His peace that surpasses all understanding. Always hang on to your hope in the Lord. He will bring you through your trial and set you on a firm foundation in Him.

Prayer Focus

  • Pray that God would give you His strength and peace to get through whatever you might be currently facing and help you experience the true joy of Christmas.
  • Ask the Holy Spirit to help you be more sensitive and encouraging to those who are struggling with an event that has them all shaken up.
