Don’t Give Up

(Focus On The Promise Not The Problems )Are you tired of waiting for a prophetic word to be fulfilled in your life? Have you received it, claimed it, believed for it, fought the good fight of faith with it—and still have yet to see it come to pass?

If so, don’t give up! Things can change in a day.

Think about the significant events in the lives of our fathers and mothers in the faith. One day Sarah, Abraham’s wife, was just an old woman with a barren womb. The next, she was pregnant with the child of promise. After 24 years of waiting for God’s word to come to pass, she was doubtful. But her situation changed—big time—in just one day!

One day David was being forced to live like a gypsy, running from the armies of King Saul. The next, his enemy was dead, and he was not only a free man but the anointed heir to the throne. David too had had a word from God—and after 15 years, he too had probably begun to doubt. But God saw to it that he became king on the appointed time.

There are other examples. What about Esther? One day she was a young Israelite woman with an uncertain future. The next, she was Ahasuerus’ queen.

One day Jeremiah was just a kid. The next, he was a prophet to the nation of Israel.

One day the Jewish people were lost, wondering why the heavens were silent and God no longer spoke to them. The next, they were gazing into the eyes of their long-awaited Messiah.

One day the disciples were hiding in an upper room for fear of persecution. The next, they were filled with the power of the promised Holy Spirit and eager to preach, teach and work miracles in Jesus’ name!God has His own time table but yet He is always on time.If we faint not we will reap the promise.So hold on to what you have heard the Lord speak to your heart .The devil will always say to us as he did to Eve did God really say that. I encourage you to keep the faith and say it ,believe it ,and receive it . If God said it His word will not return to Him void .This is a great time we live in a time to firmly stand in faith and believe that God is for us .So if God is for us what can the world and the devil do to us.He is your ever present help in times of trouble.He will never leave you or forsake you.He said cast your cares on him for He cares for you. I will not lean unto my own understanding but in all my ways I will acknowledge the Lord and allow Him to direct my path .He will make a way where there seems to be no way.The steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord .There is a way that seems right to a man but it only leads to death and destruction.In closing this is the day the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it .Love y’all Pastor Walls .
