Help me Lord /  Give me Hope

New to the ‘Living Free’ series? Why not start your journey to freedom at Session One – Part One: How Do I Find God?”

Hope – Based on God’s promises, character and faithfulness – the word ‘hope’ is expressed in the Bible as; confidence and assurance concerning the future.

Fulfilling your eternal desires and dreams connects you to your eternal purpose – it’s why you are here on this planet.

God is interested in fulfilling dreams. When we step into our purpose and fulfill our desires and dreams there is a joy – and God wants us to be full of joy.

Jesus said, “Until now you asked nothing in My name; ask, and you will receive, so that your joy may be full.” (John 16:24)

Life can be so practical and mundane, and sometimes it feels like the things that we dream about are not happening.  Dreams sometimes end in frustration and unbelief. According to the Bible dreams only end well when mixed with faith.

Help me Lord

Is the cry of your heart, ‘Help me Lord?”

What to do when unbelief and discouragement overtakes you:

1. Faith is built through reading the promises of God.

Ask the Lord to help you read the Bible (particularly the Psalms) until He impresses a Scripture on you strongly and there is a burning conviction within you regarding your situation.

“To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.” (Hebrews 11:1)

2. Give God exuberant praise for the area that you are struggling with.

The dark cloud over your life can’t stay when you are celebrating God’s goodness! For example: if an addictive behavior is holding you back from reaching your dream, praise God that when Jesus died on the Cross for you, the power of sin has been broken; the bias toward sin was dealt with. You’ll learn more about this truth and how God wants to set you free when you watch this video!
