Fresh Hope – 1st October 2016

Every crisis in your life can bring about a great deliverance if you let it.
What do I mean by that? Everyone at some point or another will go through a crisis. It’s what you do in that crisis that will enable you to either get out barely alive, get out victorious, or not get out at all.

Here are some things to do today if you’re in a crisis.

1. Thank God anyway. The Bible tells us to thank God in all circumstances, that doesn’t mean you have to thank Him for the circumstances but you thank Him in the circumstances.

2. Have a great attitude. Don’t think ‘why me?’ Don’t blame God. Understand that God has everything in control and He hasn’t forgotten you.

3. Give Him praise. Yes, praise, sing, worship your heart out.
You probably won’t feel like it, but it’s the best thing you can do. Praise breaks chains and praise changes things.

The next time you’re in a crisis, think about Jonah…he came out better and not bitter and it was because of what he did when he was in the belly of the fish that got him out victorious.
