There is hope for a tree when it is cut down, …….
Job 14:7-9 “At least there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail. 8 Its roots may grow old in the ground and its stump die in the soil, 9 yet at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots like a plant.
What scent does your life, situation, and circumstances need to sprout again?
Your specific need is different from mine, your neighbors, Pastors, Bishops, friends, and other believers.
Oh!, You think your Pastors, Bishops don’t have needs? They do, and if you are privy to others real needs you would be encouraged.
You have a need, I do, and every other person you know has needs.
Your case is not different, strange, special, or need more than faith in the Word of God, the name of Jesus, the blood of Jesus, plus the mercy of God to solve it!
There is nothing that has befallen you that is not common to man – 1 Corinthians 10:13. No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
Do not let anyone corner you into believing falsehood. God is on your side.
The scent your life need is unwavering faith in the life, death, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus. What He did on Calvary for you and I.
Moses at a time was cut down, Joseph, Hannah, Esther, Mordecai, Ruth, Naomi, Jesus himself, Paul, and Peter, and many more Saints were cut down, but at the scents of water they sprout up and are alive through their works even today.
Will you rise up from wherever you are to embrace Christ Jesus and all He already wrought for you?
Do not emphasize your human frailty more than what it is, and do not let any man or woman magnify the issues of your life for you to the point that you are blinded to what is attainable in Christ Jesus!
Faith in Jesus Christ!
The leading of the Holy Spirit!
Total reliance on the Sovereignty of the Almighty!
And total commitment to believe in the capability of God to perform what He said He will do in you, through you will birth hope in you friends.
Hope does not make ashamed! Romans 5:5
Trust in the Lord with all your heart! Proverbs 3:5-6
