God is my Hope

Isaiah 40:29
He gives power to the weak, And to [those who have] no might He increases strength. 
Isaiah 40:30
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, 
Isaiah 40:31
But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew [their] strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
What a wonderful hope we have in our Lord and Father. No matter how dark our lives and future look, if we trust our Lord and Savior, nothing will stop us from the victory that God has giving us.
As longer we believe and put our trust in God nothing and no one can come against us. Some people might say; how come my life doesn't improve? what I say to that is...

1) Look at what kind of stuff you let into your life, that can be...trough tv, abuse of your own body (smoking,drinking alcohol, bad piercing, bad tattoos, the use of your tongue, no respect for others, etc.),  it can come from the way you let your kids behave, dress, talk to others etc.
2)If you live according to your own standards, you will never walk with God.
3)If you are trying to "keep up with the Joneses" you will never be happy and God won't be in your life.
4)God wants us to leave according to His Commandments...We all know that times have changed, peoples behavior have changed also, but God's Commandments don't change, we like it or not the Commandments still have the same meaning today as the days of  Moises. God never changes and His law has never changed.

We are not perfect, we are going to sin, we are not discussing that...what we are saying here is that if you know God, you will be more familiar with what God requires from us. We need to change from inside out, we need to take the Commandments to heart, never have the excuse "everybody else is doing it" because when the time of judgment comes "everybody else" won't be there to intermediate for you.

Be wise and try to do the things that pleases God, no this world.
When you come to know our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, worldly things won't change, they are here to stay...but you are the one who's going to change, you are the one who has to make better decisions that will please God. You will have to start with your heart, then your mind and with that your walk with God will come easy.

This is the hope I have in the doesn't matter how bad our path looks like, God will always be there to comfort us.He will never abandon us.
