Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS REMAINING HOPEFUL IN SPITE OF SEEMINGLY HOPELESS PROSPECTS

Hebrews 10:23
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess,
for he who promised is faithful.

Halford Luccock in his book Unfinished Business tells this story: "One night at dinner a man, who had spent many summers in Maine, fascinated his companions by telling of his experiences in a little town named Flagstaff. The town was to be flooded, as part of a large lake for which a dam was being built. In the months before it was to be flooded, all improvements and repairs in the whole town were stopped. What was the use of painting a house if it were to be covered with water in six months? Why repair anything when the whole village was to be wiped out? So, week by week, the whole town became more and more bedraggled, more gone to seed, more woebegone. Then he added by way of explanation: 'Where there is no faith in the future, there is no power in the present.'"

Hopelessness has a horrible habit of becoming increasingly hopeless the more one dwells on it. Many people are prone to a mood of hopelessness. When they look at the glass they see it as half-empty, always expecting the worst possible outcome to adverse circumstances. When difficulties come along as they do in life a hopeless attitude steps back in despair and takes its eyes off of the providence of Christ, while focussing on the problem rather than the solution. Sadly, a hopeless outlook will never enjoy the fruit of God's character-building in our lives, because hopelessness does not rejoice in challenge. Pessimistic hopelessness throws its hands in the air and gives up when things get tough. The scriptures tell us that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And Christ's hope will never disappoint us, because God loves us enough to take us through calamity and on into his wonderful plans, plans for a hope and a future.

Whatever emptiness you think your future may hold; whatever difficulty you're facing today or whatever loss you've endured in the past, I say to you never, never give up, only look up! God's Word has endured for millennia and you hold that Word right there in your hands. The Bible is crammed with God's positive promises to you. Listen: God shall provide all your needs; the Lord is your Shepherd through the valley of the shadow of death; when you walk through the waters you shall not drown and when you walk through the fire you shall not burn; by his wounds you are healed; he has removed your sins from you as far as east is from west; God knows the plans he has to give you a hope and a future. And all of God's promises are yes in Christ! So, if you are "in Christ," you are in the same place as God's promises!

Don't allow pessimistic hopelessness to bring your future into disrepair, even in the face of a bleak outcome. Live every day in the hope of God's newness and blessings. He who promised is faithful and he will do it!

God-tracking is remaining hopeful in spite of seemingly hopeless prospects

Keep your eyes on Jesus

Don't Give Up, Look Up!

I reject this mood of hopelessness in my life and turn to you for overflowing hope for my future

Pray
"Dear Lord, I'm sorry for my negative outlook on life. I want to change from a pessimist to an optimist. I reject this mood of hopelessness in my life and turn to you for overflowing hope for my future. You are my God and my Lord. You are my provider and my companion. Today I hand my future over to you and claim, by your Word, that you will meet all of my needs according to your riches in glory in Christ. Lord, you are my hope for tomorrow. Amen."
