Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” ( 2 Cor 5:17).

It’s normal to desire that any road that has faults to be restored to its old permanent order. If the faults are left to widen the road may end up as impassable and accident prone. A passable road should be restored for safe passage of all who use it!

Created by the Almighty God mankind lives in a state of rebellion without Him. But because God is loving and good He desires to bring everyone to come to a point repentance and find Him through His son Jesus Christ. “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me” ( Rev 3:20). Once one accepts Christ he is restored to the love of God.

Today, anyone could find himself in that state of rebellion away from God. Yet God desires you are restored to Him. For, “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” ( 2 Peter 3:9).

Prayer today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, while man lives in a state of rebellion you desire to restore him to your gracious love, and today I pray to accept you as my Lord and Saviour and be restored to your awesome love, this I pray in Jesus’s name.

    Philosophers and writers have long pointed out that without hope mankind would long be gone.

He wrote, “He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how!”
    
Hope can sustain any of us through the darkest of times. This is what happened to Job when he lost everything he possessed. “Though he slay me, I will hope in him; yet I will argue my ways to his face” (Job 13:15).

    King David when he was being pursued by his enemies never lost hope. “For you have been my hope, sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth” (Psalm 71:5). The Apostle Paul who faced countless perilous times during his missionary journeys including jail and shipwrecks never lost hope. Writing to the Corinthians he reminded them, “He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers” (2 Cor 1:10-11).

    As believers God has given us hope that our lives are not empty and meaningless, like so many others. He has given us the hope to carry us through the lowest of moments. “I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in His word I put my hope” (Psalm 130:5).
    Today, may that hope that you have in Christ sustain you through whatever circumstances you may be facing.

    Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I pray in the wonderful name of Jesus that the hope I have in you lifts me up and sustains me in all situations as a conquer, in whose name I pray.
