All Hope is Gone


Do you ever feel like all hope is gone? Like there is nothing that can happen to change your situation? I had a co-worker many years ago who shared with me that she had lost all hope of ever having a baby. It broke my heart because this came from a woman who said she believed in God. The problem with that is you can’t believe in God and have no hope at the same time. We are told in Hebrews 10:23 “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.” If our hope is in God and we know that He is faithful, then it is impossible for us to be in a hopeless situation. My co-worker was putting her hope in a god but not in THE God. I’m not sure which god her hope was in – maybe it was her own abilities, or her spouse, maybe a doctor or procedure but it wasn’t in the God she said she professed to believe in. As one of my favorite songs says “My hope is in you, God. I am steadfast, I will not be moved. I’m anchored, never shaken. All my hope is in You.” He is the hope for the hopeless. Isaiah 40:41 says “but those who put their hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint”. Who or what are you putting your hope in?
