DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED!
NEVER GIVE UP!
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. –
Right now, in this very moment, you are on God’s mind! He wants to touch your heart and strengthen your mind. He wants to help you achieve your dreams and goals. He has a work for you to do here on earth and He wants to bring His plan for your life in full circle. But there is something YOU need to do! RUN!!!
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. –
1 Corinthians 9:24
YES! You’ve got to hurry! You’ve got to get up and do something now! Now is the appointed time. I feel the Lord, even so now, I know I am speaking into to someone’s life. You’ve been discouraged! You’ve felt lonely! You feel like giving up and throwing in the towel. You feel like your season has passed and you’re too late!
I hear the Lord saying, “GET UP, AND NEVER GIVE UP, KEEP GOING, STRONG AND STRAIGHT AHEAD”!
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. – Galatians 6:9
Remember when you first got saved and you felt so much love and excitement? God is now about to restore that love and excitement because right now HE is doing a NEW thing! He’s not repeating the past! He’s doing something new! He wants YOU to get on board with HIM!
Maybe you feel like you can’t and you’re weary and tired! I have good news for you!
The Word of God says, “I can do all this through Him who gives me strength”. – Philippians 4:13
Keep dwelling on the promise and not the problem! Take your thoughts UP and think on the goodness of God. The more you begin to think on HIS goodness the more strength you will gain.
Do not be afraid of the new thing that God wants to do with you. Step out and do something different by faith. God is waiting for you to respond to HIS call! He is calling you to the deep. He wants you to experience His glorious presence.
Do not be afraid of the battle, but learn to fight from a place of rest, worship, and prayer. Be anxious for absolutely nothing. Be not easily angered, but release it to Jesus just like the pressure cooker releases its steam! Turn all your worries into prayers!
Open the eyes of your heart and SEE that Jesus is with you, today and forever more!
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:10
