A hope-filled future for the down-and-out

Is life tough for you right now? Maybe you even feel like things are out of control.


Sometimes life can get that way. But, the promises of God that He has given to His children are intended to keep our chins up. They are intended to give us the motivation to keep going.


I came across a precious promise this morning. Looking at it with the lenses of the New Testament, it reminds us that our God is fully in control. He is far above whatever things we are dealing with. And even if we are in desperate straits, we will one day relax among royalty (in Heaven). So, dear believer, take heart!

Psalm 113:5-8 (NLT)
Who can be compared with the LORD our God,
who is enthroned on high?
He stoops to look down
on heaven and on earth.
He lifts the poor from the dust
and the needy from the garbage dump.
He sets them among princes,

even the princes of his own people!”

I have an incredible wife that God gave to me on May 10, 1997. Since then, the Lord has blessed us with three wonderful boys. I am also the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Polk City, Florida.
