FROM TROUBLES TO HOPE

“But I will court her again and bring her into the wilderness, and speak to her tenderly there. There I will give back her vineyards to her, and transform her valley of Troubles into a Door of Hope. She will respond to me there, singing with joy as in days long ago in her youth, after I had freed her from captivity in Egypt” Hosea 2:14-15 TLB

If there is anyone whose life exemplified transformation of woeful situations (troubles) into a door of Hope it is Jesus. According to John 14:6 KJV, Jesus is THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND LIFE. In John 10:7 KJV Jesus said categorically, “I AM THE DOOR”. There is no hopeless situation for those who are in Christ Jesus. He is our lively hope. He is our blessed hope. 1 Peter 1:3 KJV “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”

Jesus is our hope of resurrection. He is our hope of comprehensive restoration. As the way, He will take us to the promised land. As the door, He will ensure that heaven’s door will never be shut against those that trust in Him.

Are you passing through difficult times? Look up to Jesus. Pour out your heart Him. He will transform your valley of troubles into a door of hope. He will free you from every bondage of captivity. You will sing with joy. Cheer up Jesus loves you.
