I am sure you have heard the statement 'life is a journey not a destination'. The story is not over yet. You may be in despair over some situation but it is not over yet. The final chapters are not written. Things happen in life and sometimes we just think we will never get over them. You get overwhelmed and distraught. Do not despair my friend. Your whole story is not over. Do not let the enemy lie to you and make you feel you may as well end it now. You have a purpose and God will do great things with your life if you yield to Him.
Satan is a destroyer and wants you to lose hope. Have no fear. The sun will shine again and things will get better. Storms of life occur and you may fall down but you can be rescued by God and get right back up. Just because you are what the world calls a 'senior citizen' does not mean you are finished so do not even think that way!!
You may wish you had some sort of crystal ball and be able to see ahead. That would probably scare most people. It is a good thing that is impossible to do even though palm readers would tell you otherwise. Only God knows the future.
Jeremiah 29:11 is a good verse of hope and it says " For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future." Ephesians 3:20 likewise is a verse that is good for the future. It says "Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work in us." I'm excited and you should be too!!
PRAYER: Father thank you so much for the plans you have in store for me. Forgive me for times I have not trusted you or worried about some situation and why it had to happen. I want to yield to you and trust you with my future. In Jesus name. Amen.
