(There Are No Hopeless Situations In Christ)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: “Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” (Mark 9:23)
From the human being’s perspective, there’s such a thing as a “hopeless situation,” but from God’s perspective, there’re no hopeless situations. This means the seemingly difficult, impossible challenges people face in this physical world are all subject to change through the application of divine principles. God expects you to function by divine principles now that you’re born again; hence there shouldn’t be any situation you can’t change.
No matter the challenges you face in life, you’re expected to bring God glory by effecting a change in that situation. You need to realise that the life in you is the life of a victor; you were born to reign and rule. You can effect a change in any negative situation through prayer, meditation, and your confessions of faith.
When someone tells you, “that’s impossible,” get excited; for that’s an opportunity for you to put your faith to work and change things – it’s an opportunity for you to prove the Word. God always looks forward to seeing His kids demonstrate their faith; He’s excited to see you turn hopeless situations around.
He longs for the angelic beings to see His many-sided wisdom demonstrated through you (Ephesians 3:10), as you overcome challenges and change hitherto hopeless situations. That’s why you should never cry or get discouraged when situations challenge your faith. Rather, tell yourself, “The Greater One dwells in me; therefore, I’m an overcomer! God is glorified as I turn this situation around in the Name of Jesus.
Go Deeper: Matthew 17:20; James 5:17-18
Speak: I can never be disadvantaged in this life because the greater One lives in me, and He has given me the inherent dynamic ability to change hopeless situations. I have the power and wisdom to turn every unfavourable situation around for my good, to the glory of the Father! Every challenging situation that I face is an opportunity for me to demonstrate my faith and manifest the glory of God. Hallelujah.
