‘This hope does not disappoint…’
Romans 5:5 a
Good News Translation
We are very sorry for not bringing “faith series” last week due to some circumstance beyond our control. By God’s special grace we are back and better. Special thanks to Reverend Feyi Adesanya for holding forth for the past few months. May God remember him in all his works.
We are looking at hope today. Many of us are already disillusioned with our present circumstance. Like Paul said, “we are pressed in all sides and we even contemplate suicide”. You may be at that junction of life where everything seems to be working against you.
Friends, I have a word for you today. Dont give up. your break through is at the corner. You may despair life itself. You may be thinking of throwing in the proverbial towel. This is not the time for you to look down and start counting all your let downs.
Friends, count your blessings and don’t focus on how big your challenges are. Rather, focus all your attention on God who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above what you think or imagine.
Like someone once said, you can’t look up and down at the same time. You can’t focus on bigness of your challenges and focus on God at the same time. Focus on the greatness of your God.
This hope I am sharing with you today does not disappoint. Lay hold on God and he will see you through. God does not disappoint. A minute before the end is not the end yet. Hold on, trust on, God will never fail you. Hold on, trust on, God will never let you down. The promise may seem to be delayed, wait for it because God can’t disappoint you.
