Is There Hope for the Future?


Whatever you are facing, whatever fear you might have, remember that our Lord reigns and He is omnipotent!

It’s quite easy to see that we live in very uncertain times. When you add to this the personal challenges people face with their health, marriage, kids, job, or any number of things, it’s easy for a person to wonder, “Is there any hope for the future?”

I am happy to say that the Bible has an answer to that question, and it is a resounding, “YES!” Jeremiah 29:11 declares, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” 

Let me encourage your heart today that there is indeed hope, no matter what you may be facing. Why? Because our hope is anchored in an omnipotent God, even as Revelation 19:6 proclaims…

And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!”

There is no greater power. No situation is beyond His ability and authority. Whatever you are facing… whatever fear you might have… remember, our Lord reigns and He is omnipotent! 

Friend, there is no situation so desperate, there is no person too hopeless, no circumstance so dire that He cannot intervene and turn things around. The Lord God omnipotent reigns! He scatters the stars through the universe with a word from His mouth. Though your problem may be beyond your ability to fix, believe me, solving it is not a big deal for our God.

Just look at Acts 16 when Paul and Silas were thrown in prison in Philippi. They were beaten and their feet were fastened to the stocks there in the innermost prison. It looked like everything had just gone wrong. Humanly speaking, there was no hope. But at midnight they began to sing and praise God and there was an earthquake which flung open all the doors. And everyone’s chains were loosed.

The end result was that the jailer and his family got saved and a church was established. The very first European converts came to Christ and the history of the world would take a new direction—beginning there in Philippi.

So God took what was an impossible situation… without hope… and used it to change the world! And God can do the same with whatever you are facing. 

You may feel like your future holds little hope. But with God, nothing is impossible. He is all-powerful. And just as with Paul and Silas, He can turn the worst of situations into something far beyond anything you could imagine. So, yes, there is hope for your future!
