Don’t Give Up

When I was asking the Lord what word He had for me to share, this is what came up – Don’t Quit, Don’t Give Up!

So many times, when we almost have the victory, we quit and throw in the towel, so to speak! We become weary in our souls (mind, will, emotions). And the enemy, I believe, knows this and tries to put more pressure on us to bring us to that point of giving up and giving in to what he wants instead of what God has for us – which is victory!

Jesus told us not to be weary (to be utterly spiritless, to be exhausted, faint in your heart, lose or lack courage, be weak) in well doing for He said we would reap in due season (right or opportune time) if we don’t faint – Galatians 6:9.

If you are needing breakthrough, don’t quit now. Usually right before the breakthrough is when it seems the darkest. But there is light at the end of the tunnel. God is faithful to get you to the other side in victory. He has already paid the price for whatever it is you are needing to see come forth. Set your heart and mind on Him and give Him thanks for what you are believing for. Whether it is a situation in your job, finances, a new opportunity, your next step, healing or whatever else it might be, set your heart on the things above and not on your circumstances.

An encouraging scripture is in Isaiah 41:10 where it tells us, “Fear not for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea I will help thee, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness.”

When you have God on your side working on your behalf, there is nothing that you can come up against that can defeat you – except your own soul that stops believing Him. Unbelief is evil and it will harden your heart faster than anything. But praise God, we can repent (make a complete turnaround) and start believing again and see the salvation of God come forth.

So stay the course and know that God wants to bring you to the other side of whatever it is you are needing or desiring in your life and He is faithful to get you there. Start worshipping and praising Him for His mercy and grace and goodness. And know this — whatever He has started in your life, He will finish it if you will stay the course.
