I was stirred to write this because I believe in my heart that there are many who are losing hope. With all the uncertainties and calamities going on in the world and our own personal lives I can understand this to some reason. But the main reason people are losing hope is that we are focused on the wrong things. We are looking at the wrong direction, listening to the wrong people, and getting all the wrong answers and promises from those who lie and deceive. Hope deferred makes the heart sick. (Proverbs 13:12) I have this word - Hopeburning - in my spirit in this season. I believe that there are many out there, although they may appear all right on the surface, who are disappointed in their dreams, are fearful and worried, do not see a future, and are very troubled in both heart and mind. The lack of hope or seemingly not having hope at all is very disturbing, will bring you to great depression which will kill any ambition. I am here to say and to tell you and assure you that all is not lost. I want to assure you that hope is real and we all have a reason for hope no matter how dark your circumstances are, no matter how bleak your future appears. Our verse above tells us that hope deferred makes the heart sick. Deferred means to be delayed or to be postponed temporarily. I hope that you have grasped our first point. Our first point being that what you are hoping for is not gone or lost and not within your grasp and your future. It is just delayed and just temporarily postponed. If deferred hope makes the hearts sick, what does the lack of or the perception of no hope do to a person. Do not believe the lie that there is never any hope! There is always hope! That thing that you are expecting and dreaming about will eventually and assuredly happen and come to pass. Even if you're at the end of your rope, hang on, push in, and press forward, there is always hope.
