My oldest niece and I are just months apart in age. We pretty much grew up together. We performed plays for our family, swam in the lake, rode bikes and vacationed with each other for many years. The only thing we ever did that flopped was make a cake. We put everything in the cake that was needed, except we didn’t follow directions. So when the cake came out it was flat and densely spongy. Without the ingredient that would cause it to rise there was no hope. We took one bite and ditched the rest.
Oh beloved, there is one ingredient for your life that will cause you to rise above the hopeless circumstances of life. It’s not the flesh. You can try to count on others but eventually they will let you down. You can’t even count on yourself and your own personal strength. But you can always count on God. He is the glory and the lifter of your head! He made a way through Christ for you to survive every hopeless situation including the one you are encountering now. He went to the cross to give you life that never goes flat. He also sent His Holy Spirit to be your comforter – the One who encourages you in all your situations, lifts you out of the miry clay of doubt and anxiety and sets you on high with Him!
God loves you and He’s for you! His hand of help is extended to you this very day. He says rise up out of impossible and go with Me into the incredible! This season is unprecedented for the Kingdom of God and by the Spirit of the living God you will live and not waste away in sorrow, pain or unbelief! You are destined for this season to be a shining example of Power in weakness as you live in the Light of what Only God Can Do!
Psalm 40:2 He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.

Psalm 3:3 But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head.
Psalm 37:24 Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the LORD holds them by the hand.
