For with God nothing will be impossible. (Luke 1:37)
It’s easy to understand why people lose hope. The world is a mess, we all have problems to deal with and the future is filled with uncertainty. As challenging as life is, however, there is something we can do to restore our lost hope.
Here’s what I wrote in Give Up Worry For Good...
You may wonder why it is that we should have hope, especially when it looks as if our world is falling apart. It’s a good question and one that absolutely needs to be addressed. Before I answer it, however, I want to address an even more basic question. Why do we feel hopeless in the first place? We lose hope because we believe God either can’t or won’t help us with our problems. Getting rid of that hopeless feeling begins with understanding the power of God. That’s what this week is all about. We’ll look at what God can do and why he is called Almighty.
For the remainder of the week, we’ll look at examples of God’s power. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we’ll gradually begin to understand just how powerful He is. Our problems and challenges may be big, but God is a whole lot bigger!
