Hopeful not Hopeless

Christians are the only people who do not have to be governed by emotions.  We may feel awful at times. Things may seem grim.  But we have a hope that is not dependant on how we feel,  or how things seems,  but on an eternal covenant with God. He has been proved faithful down the ages.  He desires us to look up.  He requires us to take our eyes off the problem  and look  to the Promise-keeper.  A change of perspective will override the negatives and keep us steady in uncertain times.    Hebrews 6:19

As truth becomes relative in the world, as world events becomes increasingly alarming, we need an anchor. We need God’s perspective on everything. Wisdom in gained as we get to know Him and He reveals His perspective.  As Christians we have a superior form of processing. We listen with our heart to have spiritual insight.   The prayer Paul prayed for the Christians in Ephesus would be well applied today.    ‘I pray that the great God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ may give you the wisdom of … Continue reading
