There are so many people today walking in hopelessness. They have problems that they feel are insurmountable. Some people don’t have enough money to pay their rent, buy food or other necessities in life. What can we do to reach out to our fellow people and help them to overcome? It is okay to feel sorry for someone who tells you that they are hungry, but it is even better to reach into your pocket and buy them a plate of food. To give to the poor is to lend to God. Recently, one of my friends could not afford to purchase her medication and another friend alerted me. I could have sat back and did nothing but instead I called her and asked her if she was able to purchase her medication. She said no and I immediately offered to help. I could have sat back and said that it was none of my business, but how could you see someone in distress and know that you can help and you just close your eyes and also your heart? That is ungodly.
My heart goes out especially to those who are distraught and feel that all hope is gone. If all hope is gone, then you feel as if there is no reason to go on living. Lies from the pit of hell. Whenever you’re feeling down, do like me, listen to a gospel song, open up the Bible and read or just simply start having a conversation with God. Tell Him that you need help in finding your way out of this hopeless state. He hears you and He will answer you.
I remember years ago, just crying out to God, about my finances and my need to pay my mortgage. It was late. I remember just lying on my hallway floor and just crying and asking God to help me. After my tears had dried up, and I laid on the floor in a childlike state, the Holy Spirit ministered to me and told me exactly where to go to find help. I tell you no lie. The instructions were as clear as day. I obeyed and I received the assistance and found my way out of that hopeless place.
It is important in our walk to know that every day is not going to be filled with sunshine but some days will be quite gloomy. When faced with our gloomy days, because we all have them, remember our God specializes in bringing hope to the hopeless. Call on Him, trust me, He is waiting to answer the phone.
