Welcome to 30 Days of Hope. For the month of April 2020 we will create a blog post, and a podcast on this page daily pertaining to hope, written and recorded by many different people within Dawn of Hope.
Day Twenty-Seven by Jairus Tripp
The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
Matthew 7:25 NKJV
Many of us are experiencing something we could’ve never prepared for. There’s mass panic all around us, so many voices telling us what we are or aren’t supposed to do. For some it may seem the world is ending, and for others it’s just another day without a job. When I find myself in these situations, where everything seems confusing or without hope, I run to Jesus. I have to cancel out all of the noise and just listen to His voice. I begin to see that no matter how deep I am in the valley, He’s right beside me, carrying me through. I don’t have to worry about what next month looks like, that’s something I’m learning to leave in His hands. As we press in and hear from Him, we get clear direction for what we’re supposed to do, and He handles the rest. So I encourage you to let Jesus be your rock, your foundation you stand on. Learn to rest in Him. No matter how high the walls around you are, be encouraged that He’s right there with you, carrying you through.
Father, show me that even when I’m at my lowest, You’re the rock beneath my feet. Give me a revelation of Your love for me, help me learn to trust You and hear You through all the noise. Guide me in what I can do in this season, be the light beneath my feet and my firm foundation. In Jesus’ name, amen.
