There's No Hope For Me

A few months ago, I came across this scripture in the book of Ecclesiates in the Bible and it has REALLY blessed me and I would love to start with it:

For to him that is joined to all the living THERE IS HOPE:
for a living dog is better than a dead lion.
Ecclesiates 9:4

Hopelessness is the state of living and believing that the future will never be better than the present. The moment our lives are hit with horrible, sorrowful news or scenarios, the enemy shoots a thought into our minds that this is it. The current gloom and doom is the end all be all, nothing can be done to change this. When we submit our minds to this belief, the enemy has successfully planted a seed of hopelessness and it will grow into every area of our lives until living seems pointless. When I was first diagnosed with herpes in 2011, this was what the devil did to me and I entered a total state of hopelessness and depression. The doctor told me this was my life, so that was my life.

HOWEVER, this belief totally contradicts the scripture above. The doctors say one thing, my mind says one thing, but what does GOD say? God says if we are LIVING we have hope. THE ONLY CONDITION FOR HOPE IS TO BE ALIVE. God didn't say if your illness can be cured medically you have hope. God didn't say if you're healed as soon as you pray you have hope. He said IF YOU'RE LIVING. The very fact that God has kept us alive means that He has a plan for our future! Satan is a liar! Our hope is not in doctors (God bless them for their jobs though), it's not in test results, it's not in how we feel, or the thoughts the enemy plants in our minds, but it's in God, who's kept us alive and says if He's done that then WE HAVE HOPE!

Lord Jesus, may your word penetrate the heart of this person today. Lord I pray you uproot every demonic seed of hopelessness the enemy has planted, destroy it with the fire of your Holy Spirit and plant in them seeds of LIFE and HOPE! Praise your name, that their very life is a symbol of hope because you are not a man that you shall lie. May they meditate on this scripture today and walk in your hope for a better future because the future is in your hands. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

May your hope be in Jesus Christ,
