But thankfully we are not limited by our own strength. As Paul wrote, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13 Philippians 4:13I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

In fact, Christ lives in the hearts and minds of believers to help us succeed (see Galatians 2:20 Galatians 2:20I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

When the burden feels too great to bear and you are in danger of losing hope, take heart that hope remains alive because Jesus Christ is alive. You can fill the hole in your life with a new hope that only a relationship with God through Christ can provide. You are created in God's image, and through His risen Son He can help you in any difficult period of your life. These challenges are opportunities to grow in the undeserved favor of God in Christ.
The hope that's maybe missing in your life comes through the knowledge and assurance that we are saved by His life—the awesome, invincible life of Jesus Christ.
