Losing Hope?

“How much do you really trust Me, my child?”

So said the Lord to me. In truth
I responded, "O Lord, in this time of stormy weather the waves reach way over my head especially during the night hours; muscles tense.  It’s hard to swim up to place my trust in You. Yet I’ve been in a tempest before, and I know that no matter how long Your timing takes, even when it’s much longer than I think I can stand, if I remain strong in trusting You, good rewards will come forth; the situation will be well resolved.

So I plead, "What am I to do to 'stand strong' today?” The answer I know and must simply do:
1. First I must find Your promises about this situation.
    Then I focus on them.

2. Every time the enemy brings up negative thoughts, I cast them out by       speaking aloud Your promises.

3. I make a determination to follow the above statements with a trust in You.

Lord God, this is so hard! Please give me strength to follow through!

Deuteronomy 6:5 
And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart
and with all your soul and with all your strength.

Nehemiah 8:10Amplified Bible (AMP)
And be not grieved and depressed, for the joy of the Lord
is your strength and stronghold.

Upon awakening each day I will say:
Psalm 59:16 (NIV)
But I will sing of your strength,
    in the morning I will sing of your love;
for you are my Fortress,
    my Refuge in times of trouble.

Isaiah 30:15 (AMP)
15 For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel:
In returning [to Me] and resting [in Me] you shall be saved;
in quietness and in [trusting] confidence shall be your strength.

Ephesians 6:10 (AMP)
In conclusion, be strong in the Lord
[be empowered through your union with Him];
draw your strength from Him
[that strength which His boundless might provides].

Colossians 2:6-8 (NLV)
As you have put your trust in Christ Jesus the Lord
to save you from the punishment of sin,
now let Him lead you in every step.
7 Have your roots planted deep in Christ. Grow in Him.
Get your strength from Him.
Let Him make you strong in the faith as you have been taught.
Your life should be full of thanks to Him.

These are all powerful Scriptures. I thought I’d find just a few to share with you , but these are all good for strengthening spiritual muscles during challenging times.

Going through struggles, especially long ones, can be very wearing, and one gets tempted to lose faith in God ever answering our prayers, to lose faith in getting His help. Dear friends, if this is you, then it’s time to begin asking Him to fortify you to regain your faith. He loves you as a precious child and treasures you. But Jesus never said this life would be without troubles, only that He was willing to walk through them with you. Even Jesus was tempted, tested in the desert.
If you are in a testing place, you will grow stronger in the Lord during this time~ if you allow your trust in Him to grow.

Are you one who has lost hope? Be restored! It’s just the enemy trying to tear you away from the only One who can really help.
