There is Hope

[quote name=”Psalm 42:5″ center=”true” float=”right” size=”one-third”]
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.
[/quote] What do you do when everything goes wrong and it looks like there is no hope for you? How do you handle problems when it seems there is no solution? What do you do when you hurt so bad and can find no relief? These are valid questions. Many have asked the same ones throughout history. Let me give you the best answer you will ever find. In fact it is the only true answer and it is found in the Bible.

Once I was in a similar situation as you. I was searching for answers and at the “end of my rope.” I looked in many places and did not find a good solution. There were times that things seemed to get better, but those times didn’t last long. The fears and feelings of hopelessness always came flooding back. So what do you do? One day a dear friend talked with me and showed me the answer in the Bible. I considered what he said. I read the verses for myself. I cried out to God and in an instant, hopelessness was turned to hope and sadness became joy. This came as a result of faith in Jesus Christ. When He became my Savior, my life was changed for the better. Just as He turned my life around, He will do the same for you. All you have to do is believe and ask.

It is true that Jesus is the answer to all of life’s problems. In fact while Jesus was on earth, He made it clear that He is the only answer. He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” So you must determine in your mind that Jesus is the answer and He is the only path to God. If you believe the Bible you must face this fact. God sent Christ to make that way for you. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). God loves you so much that He would send His only Son to take your place on that cross and die the death that you should die. He did that because it was the only way us to know Him.

The Bible says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus” (Rom 3:23-26). Because we are sinners, we are separated from God and He sent Christ to remedy that.
[quote name=”Ephesians 2:8-9″ center=”true” float=”right” size=”one-third”]For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.[/quote]The process is simple. So simple that a child can believe. “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed” (Rom 10:8-11). Believe what the Bible says. Ask the Lord to forgive you. Confess Him as your Savior. He will change your life as he has mine. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Eph 2:8-9).
