Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life (Proverbs 13:12).
WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT
Losing hope is a serious thing because hope is what creates our vision. It’s the picture in our mind that we can set our faith and efforts upon. Without vision people perish (see Prov. 29:18). It takes vision to accomplish anything. However, when difficulty is constant enough, people tend to lose that hope and vision if they don’t defend themselves against this tendency. You know your hope has been compromised when you can’t see your heart’s desire ever coming to fruition. Hopelessness is not from God and is something we need to recognize and resist. Even though it may seem like everything is against you, stand up with fresh ambition and resist that feeling. Ask the Lord to restore your hope and help you see your future through His eyes! Let’s declare that your hope is restored today.
