When All Else Fails

Yesterday, I heard someone say, ”We live in a hopeless world”

Hopelessness can be debilitating, but it’s actually not the end. There are so many people turning to God right now, and some people will say ”as if that’s the answer” – but it actually is

When we come to the end of ourselves…when we can no longer see a way out…a way past our circumstances…we search for something else. This is when we turn to God, because we realise we have nothing left to give…whereas He has been waiting for an opportunity to show us all along

”My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9‬

Sometimes, we think that that there is no way out…no redemption…no forgiveness, and yet, God is love. Therefore, His mercy is greater than anything this world can throw at us, or anything we can do, and God promises forgiveness when we turn to Him

Jeremiah saw a ray of hope in all the sin and sorrow surrounding Him. The Israelites saw hopelessness, but Jeremiah saw the Lord’s great love, and therefore knew, they would never be truly defeated because God’s compassion never fails

Friends, there is NOTHING too big for our God to get you through, get you over, or break you free from. Hopelessness means that you have simply taken your eyes of Jesus

Therefore, this morning, my prayer is that when all else fails, you still dare to hope, you still dare to dream, and you put your trust in God – because you are a son or daughter of the living King

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
