THERE IS HOPE FOR EVERYONE IN CHRIST JESUS.
This message was inspired by an article I saw on the internet titled, “Is there hope after trauma.” And the answer is a big YES!
Instantly, what came in my mind was, there is no situation in this world which haven’t got a solution. When these solutions are sought from the right places and the right sources, then there is answer to every problem. The only true solution to every problem is God. He holds the keys to the answer to every problem we will encounter in our lives.
You know the devil is very cunning in his ways. He is a liar and he likes to destroy people’s hope in life. Most of the time, he will bring about traumatic situations in people’s lives and then he will suggest to them through people that, because of what they’ve been through, there is no hope for them in life and hence they will have to live miserably for the rest of their lives. But one thing is, as afar as you didn’t choose that problem for it to happen, if God has allowed it, then it cannot stop you from your purpose in life. And at the right time, he is going to bring you out victoriously.
A lot of people are living in misery and in pain because of some evil situation or some chronic sickness or illness. The truth is what is beyond our human understanding, what is unbearable for human, it is possible for God. As the bible says in Mark 10:27; “…………. With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” Sicknesses that cannot be healed by man, can be healed by our Lord Jesus, he is the great healer, and there is no illness or sickness that he cannot heal.
The devil will love for people to go around feeling hopeless and stuck in life. So, if he can deceive you that your problem cannot be resolved, then you don’t even bother searching for the solution. As a result, you walk in life with one problem always dominating your thoughts and causing you to live unhappily.
After all, his main aim is to steal, to kill and to destroy but our Lord Jesus said, he has come so we can have life and have it more abundantly.
Brethren we serve a powerful God, and there is nothing that he cannot do. There is no situation that he cannot turn around. If not, he wouldn’t have been able to command the legion of demons to get out of a man in Luke 8: 26-39. I’m sure the man was going through a lot of trauma with no single bit of peace at all. The bible says he screamed day and night. This explains the level of pain and distress he was in. He was in a lot of trauma with all sorts of demonic attacks. But when Jesus stepped in his situation, he commanded the demons to get out of him and instantly the man was set free. Friends, what can’t our God do.
The truth is, there is no problem that you will go through that will be bigger than our God. Jesus said in Matthew 11: 28; “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” This shows us that his arms are open to receive us and set us free from every trials or adversity we might be going through, all we need to do, is to believe and have faith in him.
Another typical instance of Jesus redeeming and restoring someone who has been burdened with sickness for a very long time is in Luke 8: 43-48. It talks about the woman who had been bleeding for 12 years. This woman had sought for healing in a lot of places but to no avail, but rather her situation kept on getting worse. One day she heard that Jesus was in her town, so she went with the crowd to meet Jesus. Being so eager to get well, she got very close to Jesus and touched him. Immediately she got healed. Here, Jesus didn’t have to pray for her, she only had to touch Jesus and instantly, healing power left Jesus to the woman and set her free. Amazing!
Whatever problem that has been troubling you, there is a solution, and the only true solution is in Christ Jesus. He said in John 14: 13, “And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the son.” That financial problem, that health problem, that marriage problem, whatever it is, if you turn it to God in faith, he will step in and turn your life round for the better.
Friends, our Lord Jesus didn’t leave us at the mercy of the devil and his wicked plans, but he gave us authority in his name. It is my prayer that we study his word and understand this authority he has given to every believer, so we do not go through life worried and sad, but rather stand firm in our faith and fight successful spiritual battles. AMEN!
