I want to talk a little about having no hope.  Many times, in my past, I have literally had no hope.  I couldn't see a way out, and things were so dark that darkness was looming all around me.  I had no choice but to hope that Christ was real.  

What was so amazing is that I discovered that I had believed in the myth of God but, what to my wondering eyes should appear was a living Savior.  If you had tried to beat me over the head with Jesus I would have run from you (and I did to several who tried to help me).  I was so hardheaded that even a two by four could not have hurt me if you had given me a good whack on the noggin.  I look back now and see that that is probably what I had needed the most (ha-ha)!

So, I understand when you feel like you have no hope thinking you are blocked in no matter which way you turn.  I am here to tell you that you might have to walk through some things to get to the other side (I know I certainly did) but if you will at least try something, anything different than what you are doing right now Jesus will intervene.

Don't be fooled by the witchcraft of people who say you don't have to work to help yourself or those who say, ‘Wait on the LORD' and he will come through.  Well, unless you are willing to do your part then he is not going to just deliver you out of a mess. 

But, realize that if you are standing in a place you don't want to be in or don't like or feel you don't deserve then take the advice of someone who has been there—kneel and ask Jesus to help you.  Get up, and do your part (by working) and he will come along in his way and bring you hope.  It might not be as you think or how you would like for it to be done, but he will come in his way.

Satan has come to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10) and he is doing a pretty good job of it by what I am seeing and hearing.  You have the authority over him.   Call upon the name of Jesus and allow him to help restore your hope again.
