Hope for the Hopeless


God Has Not Forgotten You
There was a hopeless case in John 11, concerning Lazarus. He had been dead for four days; yet Jesus sent forth the Word of God, it brought Lazarus out from an impossible circumstance. Lazarus came out of the grave with both hands and legs bound with no support from anybody. When the WORD goes into a man’s situation, he will not need any human help. Job 14:7-9 – For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. 8 Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; 9 yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.

In case you are brought down, there is hope. Though the problem might look like an age-long problem, God is saying there is hope for you. No matter how hopeless that situation is, as long as God’s word is in place, that case cannot be written off. Every time you have a setback, God wants to give you a testimony. That is why I know today, no matter how hopeless men have said your case is, through the WORD of God, you will bounce back again in the name of Jesus! That your health will be renewed in the name of Jesus.

Jairus came to Jesus because of his daughter who was at the point of death in Mark 5. He was still with Jesus when they brought news to him that his daughter has died. In verse 36, Jesus told him not to be afraid but only believe. Mark 5:36 –As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. In verse 40, they laughed Jesus to scorn when He told them that the young damsel was sleeping. Today, I announce to you that in the midst of your mockery, you will give birth to your testimony. That situation will receive life in the name of Jesus!!

In Genesis, Joseph was hated by his brothers. They removed his coat of many colors but they could not remove the blessing from him. They hated him to the point they threw him into a pit to kill him but what they meant for evil, God turned it for his good. I speak to you today, God will turn every evil your enemies planned against you for a testimony in the name of Jesus!!! Every time God wants to change a man’s story, He puts him through a situation which will birth a testimony. You that people have written off as a failure, you will be the next person the world will look up to in the name of Jesus! You that men have mocked, you will be the next show-piece on the earth

When Joseph’s brothers came to Egypt, they could not recognize Joseph anymore and he wept because those that meant to hurt him have come to eat from his table. Very soon, you will be the one that will preserve your household!! The same people that mocked you, you will soon render help to them in Jesus name!!! If they could not bury Joseph, no man will be able to bury your destiny in the name of Jesus

Any time Jesus comes, situations must change. Abraham staggered not on the promises of God. All God wants you to do is to stand on His word. Through the Word of God, you will bounce back to life. Your testimony will gather community! They will dance from one end of the road to another because of what God has done in your life! Your wedding will shake Nations!! Your deliverance will shake Nations!!! Your breakthrough will shake Nations. Your family testimony will bring crowd to God in the name of Jesus. Any time the WORD comes, things must change. God’s word cannot change. No matter how shattered a situation is, when God’s Word comes, situation changes. I announce to you that your situation must change! Your case is not hopeless; have hope because through God’s word, that sickness will go. You will be healed. Just look up to the Word of God and your situation will change in Jesus name .

At age 93 he believed God will still make good of his promise of a son and heir.  Then Isaac was born and God upped the ante by asking his friend to make the supreme sacrifice,  the Bible says 'by faith Abraham offered Isaac as a sacrifice'. Being God's friend is not determined when you are in good times.  Being God's friend is never determined by what you get from him Being God's friend is determined by doing everything he requested from you. Being God's friend is determined mostly when you are passing through the difficult situations of life. Joseph chooses prison instead of sex,  Apostles chooses the ministry instead of family and career. Moses chooses slavery instead of a prince and Palace. It was all accounted to them as righteousness. Can you pay the price to be God's friend? God help you as you decide.

A spiritual person is the one who has yielded himself to the things of the spirit. One who is led by the spirit and not by carnal whims. One who follows every instruction of the father and whose purpose, pursuits and plans are the one God has given to him. A spiritual person is one who doesn't see going to the Lord in prayers as a burden but a lifestyle. One who values the secret place. A spiritual person, because He follows God and obey him on what he should do per time, never goes astray and always make the right decisions. I once heard about a business man who had never lost any business in his life. When he was asked the reason behind this, he said "I ask God before I venture into any business. If He says no, I won't, if He says yes, I will." That is a man who has submitted his will to the Spirit's. Without controversy, everything that happens in the physical, has been established in the spiritual. Howbeit that we become spiritual men that make decisions concerning our lives in the spiritual realm rather than just watching and accepting whatever comes to us physically.

That job, settle it in the spiritual realm, that academic strategy you need to excel in the semester, get it in the spiritual, that business you want to engage in, get the how to go about it in the spiritual. It's not enough to love God, it is expedient to depend on Him totally, and value his instructions and decisions for you tangibly. That our eyes of understanding be enlightened. James  2:23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. After losing everything he held dear, job looked back and longed for the days when God's friendship graced his home, his children were around and everything was going fine.

Maybe you can remember days like that in your own life,  we've been conditioned to think of friendship in terms of the benefits it confers,  but being God's friend comes with a price. It costs time, selflessness, thoughtfulness,  absolute trust and very often suffering. Those who are intimately close feel the hurts and joy of the ones they love more than anyone else.  True intimacy means a death to our own selfish desires. Abraham was called God's friend but the friendship came at a price. We read, Abraham believed God,  when He was asked to leave his father's house to an unknown location,
