A DOOR OF HOPE By Joseph Prince

                                            By Joseph Prince
“I will return her vineyards to her and transform the Valley of Trouble into a gateway of hope.”  Hosea 2:15  NLT
Are you among the people who think that when you fail, God leaves you and only returns when you get your act together?  Some people think that they must clean up their lives and overcome all their struggles on their own before they can come before the presence of God. Well, I have a simple question for you:  Do you clean yourself before you take a bath?  Of course not!
God wants you to come to Him just as your are, with all your weaknesses, idiosyncrasies, wrong beliefs, hang-ups, and all your bondages, fears, and addictions.  He is the bath!  You don’t have to try to clean yourself up before you come to Him.
Even if your trouble is due to your own willfulness or a mistake of your own making.  He is still with you.  He will never forsake you (Heb. 13:5).  You are precious in His eyes. Can you imagine living life with this kind of confidence, assurance, and peace that comes when you are truly anchored in this truth?
Today, even if you find yourself in the Valley of Trouble, know that you will not remain there for long.  You will walk through it and not remain or camp there (Ps. 23:4).  Things are going to get better.  Step through the door of Hope and out of your Valley of Trouble today.  Jesus is the door of hope!  Believe in His love for you and allow Him to lead you to freedom.  In His loving presence, you will find forgiveness, healing, and restoration.  He will mend your life and transform you from the inside out.
