Discouragement is another way for the thief to come in and steal our goods. Perhaps you have awakened today and felt just as bad as you did yesterday. And in a moment of weary resignation and discouragement, you cried out and released fear from within your heart. “He’s finished with me here. I give up.” Well I feel the anointing of the Lord to speak into your life to tell you right now you will not fail, and I have some witnesses to prove it: Look at Samson, Moses, and David just to name a few! It’s time you pick up where you left off! Restart your worship, reclaim your destiny! Start again!!
Scripture Reading: Psalm 34:18–19, the psalmist assures us God is ever so near to the brokenhearted, and saves those with a contrite or crushed spirit.
Don’t allow the words “I can’t do it. Oh, this will never work. I wish I had never agreed to do this thing”, to get into your spirit when you are faced with something new. Think of your first fumbling attempts to ride a bicycle, to glide on ice skates, or to play basketball. It was hard at first but you didn’t give up. I know our ineptness seems staggering and overshadowing at times, but God sees the big picture. He knows that all we need is a God’s-eye view of the situation.
Are you fumbling, falling, stumbling, or missing the mark somewhere in your life at the moment? Are you ready to quit an assignment God gave you? You’d better not. God says, He’s not through with you. Who told you to quit? Worship Him!!!!
If you want to be reminded of the Lord’s power and mercy, think back to the place where He performed a miracle in your life or where you witnessed a miracle. You didn’t think you were going to make it, but you did. God has not changed! If He did it once, He will do it again!
Don’t say it’s over until God says so. Never, ever forget that you are not in this thing alone. God is with you every step of the way, whether you “feel” Him or not. Be determined to stay right there with Him until He blesses you.
I don’t know you about you, but feel the joy of His presence, and I’m just gonna praise Him in advance for what He is doing!
As long as God is alive keep on dreaming, believing, climbing, overcoming, and getting back up. Those same failures and fumbles will be the stumbling blocks that lead to your victory.
So you see, God is not through with you, you can’t quit!
Galatians 6:9 So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.
