In the last post, I discussed how to Renew Your Hope When Life Becomes Tough and we considered few points.
I like to conclude by sharing with you What You Need to keep moving forward with strength and hope When Life Becomes Tough.
We all need something to really keep us moving forward with faith and assurance that all will end well with us. Except there’s something giving us hope and assurance, there’s tendency to consider quitting or giving up.
Now, what do you need when the sun is set?
YOU NEED ASSURANCE OF GOD’S PROMISES
You need to have an encounter with God, to hear His voice and have Him speak words of encouragement and assurance into your life. You need to understand His covenant with you and to stand strong in His promises.
YOU NEED ASSURANCE OF HIS PRESENCE
When you know God is with you, your confidence comes alive. Loneliness disappears and you will be strong, courageous and hopeful that you are not in this sun set alone.
YOU NEED ASSURANCE OF HIS SECURITY
When you know God is watching over you even in the midst of dangers, it helps you to be at peace. Assurance of God’s security over your life is very important when the sun is set.
YOU NEED ASSURANCE OF HIS RESTORATION
When you know God is going to restore you back to where you have been displaced in the time of troubles helps you to caution in giving up on your hope. It may be the hope of restoration of your marriage, career, ministry or anything that has been forcefully taken away from you. Assurance of God’s restoration is the key.
YOU NEED ASSURANCE OF HIS FAITHFULNESS
When you have assurance of God’s faithfulness, you will be able to trust Him more. It won’t matter to you anymore whether people around you are faithful or not. But you will be rest assured that no matter what, God will remain faithful to His promises.
YOU NEED ASSURANCE OF HIS UNBROKEN COVENANT
When you have assurance of God’s everlasting, unending and unbroken covenant, you can confidently commit even the future you don’t know what it holds for you into God’s care.
God’s covenant with His children is everlasting because He’s a covenant keeping God. So when you have assurance of His covenant, your future is guaranteed. And that’s why someone said, “I don’t know what the future holds, but I know the One who holds the future
These are what you need to keep moving when the sun is set for you and it seems you are becoming weary and frustrated about your life.
Please remember what you need: Assurance of His promises, presence, security, restoration, faithfulness and His everlasting covenant.
These will keep you going when it is most difficult to keep going forward.
