Guest Post by Bob Beaudine
(Personal note from Bob T: I have been blessed to call Bob Beaudine one of my best friends (or as Bob B would say “My WHO”) for 15 years!)
Almost on a daily basis I will get a call from one of my “WHO” is overwhelmed with a personal challenge. The challenge can be a personal health challenge, a health challenge of a close family member or friend, the loss of a job, a broken relationship, a business deal gone south, etc. It is not a minor inconvenience – like the traffic was really horrendous this morning. It is not a little disappointment like, my favorite sports team lost! These are the kind of life circumstances that have you feeling absolutely crushed, devastated and overwhelmed.
Maybe you or a close friend or one of your family members is experiencing this kind of challenge today – You are feeling hopeless!
If you or they called me today, here are the three questions that I would ask you:
- Does God know your situation?
- Is he OK with it?
- Does he have a good plan for you?
Take a look at these two simple algebraic formulas:
- Devastating Circumstance + Overwhelming Circumstance = Hopelessness
- Devastating Circumstance + Overwhelming Circumstance + GOD = Hope
Whenever you are feeling absolutely overwhelmed it is because you have forgotten God.
With God there is hope!
In Jeremiah 29:11, he said he had a good plan for you, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”
What has he already told you on the matter – either in his Word – or said to you personally? You have personal God. And if you have not already heard his voice, you will – either through his Word or the word he will speak to you personally.
Remember: He has never not done what he said he would do!
