As we enter new seasons of life, we can allow past experiences to rob our joy and stifle our hope. When situations have not turned out as we had hoped, we can become very skeptical people who only see the negative.
The Bible says that hope deferred makes the heart sick but desire fulfilled is a tree of life (Proverbs 13:12). When we come into relationship with God by accepting Jesus into our heart, we come into relationship with the God of all possibilities.
As we daily come to God in prayer, worship, reading and meditating on the Word, we can exchange all of our discouragement and disappointment for God’s hope and strength. As we immerse ourselves in God’s presence we will see our hope effortlessly rise and our expectations lift.
As we commit our plans to God, He will bring to pass everything He has put in our hearts, in His perfect timing. There is nothing too small or too big for God. He is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than we can hope, think or ask; and as we grow in our relationship with Him, we will see His faithfulness time after time and become people who walk with a constant expectation of good.
