Why Are Thou Cast Down? Hope in God


Good morning dearly beloved brethren. Once again, I want to welcome you to the month of Hope, the eleventh month of this year. I pray for you that God that has preserved your life so far this year will see you through the end of this year gloriously in Jesus name, amen.

I am so grateful for this opportunity to share God’s Word briefly and lead us in a few prayers. I really appreciate you for making out time to be part of this Programme. May God answer all our prayers in Jesus name, amen.

Today by the grace of God, we are continuing in the series on: Hope.

Psalm 42:5

5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted in me? Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

Romans 15:13

13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Introduction

The Bible in Psalm 34:19 says “Many are the afflictions of the righteous…” We live in a world full of troubles and sorrows. Just imagine what we have all been through since the beginning of this year. Jobs have been lost, homes have been lost, even lives have been lost. This is more than enough to depress us, make us sad and we can even lose hope. But the good news is that our God is able to turn things around for our good. We shouldn’t lose hope at all.

Hope in God: Psalm 42:5

Ordinarily, when we express hope, we are expressing our uncertainties, fears and worries. But this is not the biblical meaning of hope. The biblical hope is not just a desire for something good in the future, but rather, a confident expectation and desire for something good in the future. Biblical hope not only desires something good for the future — it expects it to happen. And it not only expects it to happen — it is confident that it will happen.

A few biblical examples of those who hoped in God.

Abraham: Romans. 4:18-22

The Bible tells us that Abraham hoped against hope. He looked beyond the situation of his wife who had passed the age of child bearing and was confident that God that promised is able to fulfil His promise.

The Woman with the issue of blood: Matthew 9:20-22

Though her situation was hopeless, she managed to have hope that if she could just touch the helm of Jesus, she would be made whole. It wasn’t a wish or uncertainty but a certain level of confidence that her healing had come. She touched Jesus by faith and was made whole.

Conclusion

Beloved, our hope is built on Jesus Christ. Let’s not give up, our tomorrow will be better than today. The One who has promised us a glorious future has the power to bring it to pass.
