You Have Hope!

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek. (Hebrews 6:19)

You may be in the deepest hole of your life. But if the Word says you have hope, then, glory to God, you have hope! You may think your circumstances are tearing you apart, but I have news for you. Your circumstances are not the problem! All circumstances, I don’t care what they are, must bow their knee and submit to the Name of Jesus and the Word of God when faith, hope and love are brought to bear on them. When circumstances are very bad, get your Bible and some teaching tapes and go off by yourself until you stop negative thoughts from bombarding your mind. My wife and I have done that many, many times. Years ago, we did that where our children were concerned. It was obvious from the circumstances that the devil was after them and the pressure was getting worse and worse. Finally, we decided to deal with the situation head-on. We spent time piled up in the middle of the bed with our Bibles and our notebooks, looking up every scripture we could find about children. We wrote them all down, prayed over them and made an irrevocable declaration. We said, “On the basis of the promises of God and by the blood of Jesus, our children are not going to hell. The Word of God says our children are taught of the Lord and great is their peace, and that settles it forever.” Then, no matter what happened, we stood our ground in the Name of Jesus. To keep from wavering, we had to cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalted itself against the Word God had given us about our children. We had to bring all our thoughts into captivity and into obedience to that Word. All our thoughts! “Well, I try to do that, but sometimes I just can’t help what I think.” You most certainly can. God’s Word says you can (Philippians 4:8). God’s Word tells you to choose what you think, and cast down what you shouldn’t think. When you do that, hope will have a place to work. In fact, if you’ll guard your mind, there will come a moment when hope suddenly rises up. Add to that, faith and the love of God, and complete the transaction in the realm of the spirit. Suddenly, that hole you are in won’t be deep at all. You can walk right out. When that happens, you’ll suddenly know that what you’re hoping for is yours. It’s yours and all the demons of hell can’t keep you from receiving it. You’ll find yourself saying, “It’s done! It’s mine, glory to God!”
