God Is Your Hope

When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had been sick for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to be made well?” (John 5:6)

How good is the God you believe in? As the day draws to a close, meditate again on His goodness and grace.

Were there things that troubled you today? Were there situations that seemed hopeless?

It’s time to let them go, into the hands of God.

In John 5, we read that a man who laid by the pool of Bethesda was sick for thrity-eight years. He laid there hoping that he could get into the pool when the angels stirred the water, so that he may get well. But there was no one to carry him into the pool. So he could only watch as others got healed. While he lay there powerless.

Can you imagine how hopeless he must have felt?

That is, until he met Jesus!

Jesus simply asked the man, “Do you want to be made well?”

With one, command, Jesus said, “Arise, take up your mat, and walk.”

And “Immediately, the man was made well, and took up his mat and walked.” (John 5:9)

After years of hopelessness, yearning, pining, desperate for a healing, all he could do was lie and see others get healed.

Yet, the moment he met Jesus, he was instantly healed!

What have you been pining for? Does it seem like the blessings you want always end up in someone else’s house? Maybe some of them don’t even seem godly at all, yet they seem to be blessed?

Well, God is asking you not to lose hope today.

With one Word from Jesus, everything can turn around in an instant.

Whether you need healing in your body, your finances or your relationships, one Word from Jesus is all you need.

Remember, victory is already yours through the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hold fast to the hope and see the promises of God come to pass in your life.

Be Greatly Blessed!

Action Steps:

Place your hope in the finished work of Jesus – not on what your eyes see or your senses feel.

Hope gives birth to faith. And faith gives birth to the manifestations of God’s promises. (Faith is the substance of things hoped for.)

The first fruits of your miracles usually come through a sense of peace, hope, and love.

As you meditate on the Word of God, let His promises take root in your heart.

Whenever you’re tempted to lose hope, bring God’s promises to mind.

But don’t just repeat the verses mindlessly. Instead, let each word marinate in your spirit.

See, hear, feel, what it’d be like if your prayer already came true.

What’d it be like if you’re already healed? If you’re already prosperous? If you’re already in a happy relationship? If you’re already righteous?

For all of the above are already true.

And when you choose to believe God’s word over the illusions of the world, you’re watering the seedlings of hope and faith.

Allow the seedling of your hope to bloom into a luscious tree and you’ll surely see His promises come to pass in your life.


Father, I admit that there are times when I lose hope.

There are times when I’m not sure whether you’re listening, or whether you even care.

But I know Lord that those are the thoughts of my flesh.

For your Word says that you’re always with me. You’re closer to me than my very breath.

And before I even utter a word, you already know my heart.

How then can I lose hope? When I know that you’re planning the way ahead for me.

You’ve gone ahead to prepare the way for me.

You’re my hope and my strength Lord. In you I rest my faith.

I see now all the promises and all the treasures you’ve laid up for me.

The health, the abundance, the security, the joy, the love, the wholeness, the shalom peace.

All purchased for me with the Blood of Jesus Christ.

I receive them all now.

In Jesus’ mighty Name.
