THERE IS HOPE
Main Text: Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the thoughts I have towards you, saith the Lord; thoughts of peace and not of evil to give you an expected end.
Psalm 126:5, “For they that sow in tears shall reap in joy”.
Many times, we are faced with numerous trouble of life, too many disappointments a lot of failures and setbacks. Too many doors we felt are positive and good for us are slammed right on our faces just as we were about to step right in, a lot of ‘no’s’ are said to our faces on a daily basis.
However, we should understand that those closed doors are God’s way of assuring us of brighter days ahead. God would not want to get us entangled with things, people or places that are not fit for us, so he would rather shut those doors than let us get in to meet a disastrous ending.
We should learn to understand that as good times come and go, the bad times as well will come and go, that no matter how deep, dark or heavy those clouds are, they will surely give way to golden rays of promising sunshine.
No great man ever grew without bad moments. We can choose to only see the brightness of the moonlight and not the darkness of the night. No cloud, no matter how deep or heavy it is, stands over a particular place forever, because, sorrows may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning.
SEE GOD OVER THOSE CHALLENGES
