Hopelessness and PTSD. This is a very relevant, negative, horrible thought that has become a stronghold in many lives especially if they have been dealing with something for an extended period of time. When hopelessness is overcome, it opens the door to freedom.
The world can help, but even the best psychiatrist will admit that there is no cure for many of the mental and emotional ailments that people have, and that even medication can only treat the symptoms. This contributes to the sense of hopelessness that people feel.
Only Jesus Christ can set a person free from spiritually based problems, and through His Word, you can defeat these feelings of hopelessness. As your mind is transformed by the Word of God, (Romans 12:2), you will overcome these feelings of hopelessness. Here are some Scriptures to encourage you:
“I have come that you might have abundant life.” John 10:10
“I have come to set the captives free.” Luke 4:19
“Who the Son sets free is free indeed.” John 8:32
“If you continue in my words, then you are my disciples, and you shall know the Truth and the Truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)
“And they overcame him (Satan), by the Blood of the Lamb (Jesus), and the word of their testimony.” Revelation 12:11
Trust these words, and the stronghold of ‘hopelessness’ will bow its knee to the power, truthful words of our Lord and Master.
Jesus is LORD.
Hopelessness will soon loose its place of lodging in the life of a committed Christian, once the Christian has spiritual understanding and trusts the words of Jesus. Hopelessness will be overcome and defeated, but it will take some time to get the mind renewed to line up with the Word.
Don’t lean any longer on your current understanding of your situation. That will only breed more hopelessness. In Proverbs 3:5, we are told not to “lean to our own understanding,”, or a purely human estimation. The world’s estimation may be that there is no cure, but in the reality of God’s Word, the Cure has already been made available.
Jesus is the same Yesterday, Today and Forever, (Heb. 13:8), and He said that if He sets you free, you will be free indeed, that you would know the Truth and the Truth would make you free, that He came to give you life and that more abundantly. He does not change and His Word does not change. Depend on His Word. Accept the Real Truth from the Bible and YOU are on your way to freedom.
How do we get things from heaven?
