I feel that I have tried almost every possible thing I could do but my breakthrough still seems miles away. Some days feels worse than the day before and those are the days where I just easily let go of my hope and trust in God.
Author Max Lucado shared in his writing, “For if we don’t trust when times are tough, we don’t trust at all.” Joseph trusted God and kept his hope anchored firmly in God, he did not strive to fight the injustice he suffered. He had a dream and he held no bitterness and lose his hope in God when bad circumstances came his way repeatedly. Joseph kept his integrity and trusted God. Eventually Joseph rose to be the man God wants him to be – the right hand of Pharaoh and he was equipped with the right disposition and wisdom to do his job wisely and with favor.
“When you don’t trust when times are tough, you don’t trust at all.” These words speak truth and this is how I will find my hope again; to trust, when times are tough.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
