Chaos and confusion are the calling cards of a life that seems to be out of control. Chaos and confusion have caused many people to abandon their dreams and forfeit their hopes for a brighter tomorrow, simply because there were not signs of hopes on the horizon. As tragic as that is, it’s the reality of many people. Hope is the intangible that keeps us afloat and when hope is hijacked, tomorrow seems pointless, but what you need to remember is that God holds time in His hands!
The roads of our lives have strategically be filled with dark moments because it’s in those dark moments where we find the hope in God’s word. In Haggai 2:9; God promises an exiled people, those staring hopelessness in the face, “the glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house, says the LORD Almighty. And in this place I will grant peace, declares the LORD Almighty.” What an encouragement for a people who seemly had lost their desire to continue! In the midst of their darkest moment, God’s word was breaking through like the morning sunrise, offering them a glimpse into their bright future.
God’s concern for humanity is seen through this historical account and it continues to provide hope for those languishing in a dark place. Psalm 24:7-8 says; “lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the KIng of glory may come in. Who is the this KIng of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.” Glory is coming to your life, so prepare yourself, because The Road Is Brighter Ahead!
