You had big dreams for your life. In your dreams you are rich. You are famous. You are loved by everyone. You are happy. You know now your dreams do not always come true. You are not rich. You are not famous. You are not loved by everyone. You are not happy. You owe money to people. You are sick. Now, your hope is gone. You feel that your dreams will never come true.
When you lose hope then you are defeated. You are not happy with your life. You cannot find true joy.
I know the One who will give you hope. He will take your life and love you. He will give you a dream. His dream for you will come true. You must ask Him to be your friend. His name is Jesus Christ.
God the Father wants you to do what He tells you to do. When you do not do what He wants then it is called, “sin.” Sin will lead you to death. God the Father does not want you to die. He sent Jesus Christ, God’s Son, to die in your place. Jesus Christ died so that you will not have to die for your sins. He wants you to love God the Father. Jesus wants you to accept his gift of life. He wants you to give all your heart and mind to serve Him. If you give yourself to Jesus Christ then you will live with God the Father in heaven. Jesus will give you new dreams. Your new dreams will come true. Jesus will give you hope. When you have hope then you are a winner.
Your new hope will give you life. You will feel joy. You will feel loved. You will be happy.
Pray with me if you want to move from no hope to hope.
“Dear Jesus, please forgive me for not obeying you. I give my heart and mind to you. Take control of my life. Please give me new dreams. Please give me new hope. Thank you. ”
Do not despair. Get hope today!

Rescued From The Pit of Despair
The Psalmist wrote in the Bible the following words: “1 I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. 2 He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. 3 He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord” (Psalm 40:1-3 NLT).
David the king of Israel wrote these words. David tells us that he waited on the Lord. He waited patiently for God to act on his behalf. He had fallen into a pit. His enemies had come against him and he saw no way of escape. He felt trapped. It was like he had fallen into a pit that he could not climb out of. He, therefore, cried out to God. He knew that God was His only hope. He knew that his own strength was not enough. Powers much greater than himself were coming against him. He, therefore, knew he needed help from heaven. The help of men would not be enough. He needed Almighty God.
THE PIT OF DESPAIR
We can find ourselves today in a pit of despair. Life can bring us huge problems that are beyond our own strength and wisdom. We can feel like we have nowhere to turn. We think of those whom we know to whom we might turn to in our despair, but we realize that it will not be enough. We are in the mud and mire of an unfortunate predicament and there is no one to help us pull ourselves out. We have made mistakes, unwise decisions, and we have gone in the wrong direction. We have ended up in the wrong place. Like a lost sheep, we have wandered off the path that God had for our lives.
We must be like King David. We need to remember God and turn to Him. We need to cry out in our despair to a God who is in heaven, who is waiting to hear our cry. There is a God in heaven who is full of compassion and mercy. He hears and answers the prayers of His children. God, through His eternal Word, can set our feet on solid ground. It is not God’s will that we slip into a pit and remain there. It is not His will that we fail. He comes to steady us as we walk along. As we call on Him in faith from the depths of our heart, He comes to rescue us. He brings us deliverance. He becomes our hope for living.
