ALL HOPE IS NOT LOST 1
Main Text- Psalm 33:18-19
“But the eyes of the lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine” NIV
Psalm 71:5 – For you O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth
A rickety bus that plies the streets of Owerri town in Imo State, Nigeria has the following inscription on its body “Never Never give up hope”. We can guess the experience of the bus owner/operator from this inscription. Depression can lead us to do many things including suicide. In 1 kings 19, we read of Elijah getting so depressed that he asked God to take his life. But God brought him out of his depression, strengthened him, listened to his complaints and corrected him by assuring him in a still small voice and gave him a new assignment. That’s the good God we serve, and he wants to restore us always, as he did to Elijah.
We should never give up hope, for all hope is not lost in Christ Jesus. Through the uncertainty of this world , God can be trusted completely, knowing that nothing absolutely nothing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39; “Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord”.
DEPRESSION HAS NO POWER UNTIL YOU OFFER IT A SEAT
