Don’t Give Up


God is still changing stories, He is still wiping away tears, mending the heart broken, opening new chapters, and transforming the destinies of men and women just like a dream of the night.

Have you ever being mocked in the course of serving God diligently or committing to the things of God? Have you been believing God for something that doesn’t seem to be coming forth? Are you thinking that those who are disobedient are making it while you are not – as an obedient child.

If all or some of the above questions apply to you. Let me tell you this good news, “those who laughed last laugh the best.” Let mockers keep mocking, let backbitters keep biting. You, don’t give up. Don’t be ashamed to continue identifying with Jesus. “It’s foolishness to be shameful of what is gainful.” Stop comparing yourself to someone’s success. There is no comparison in Christ.

Trust me, it shall become a testimony for you. Sooner, there will be a dramatic change of your story. Your story, God will rewrite. Believe that. When God turn again the captivity of Zion they were like them that dream.” (Psalm.126:1)

Never give up, those who have mocked you will come back to celebrate with you. And also join you to serve the living God. Don’t be discouraged. You don’t have to throw in the towel right now, keep pressing on…the sad thing is that many people have given up before the arrival of their breakthroughs. Don’t let happens to you.

Your shame will soon turn to dignity. Don’t be left behind, the latter rain is falling. Currently, God is restoring the glory and dignity of His people. The years that the locust and cankerworm have eaten are currently being restored. Do not be fretted, “If you have lost something God is still the reason you have not lost everything.” Your attitude toward your situation will always bail you out any day any time.

Understand that what is bothering you now will no longer be an issue in 3 to 4years time. There is nothing that has a beginning that has no end. There is always a light in the end of the tunnel. God will always has the final say irrespective of what people say or think. People may have looked down on you. The people that looked down on you will soon look up to you.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. – Jer.29:11

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. – Psalm.30:5

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. – Hab.2:3

Discouraged, but not alone


Discouraged but not alone

Discouraged means to make someone feel less confident, enthusiastic, and positive about something, or less willing to do something

Many believers are giving up on God because many are serving God based on contract and not in truth and in deed.

Don’t question God question yourself; don’t blame God blame yourself. God has integrity. Everyone is responsible for the outcome of his/her life.

Numbers 23:19 KJV
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it ? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

*Reasons not to be discouraged*

(1). God is always at present – Many are sincere but only few are sensitive.

The lack of the consciousness of God’s presence is the major cause of discouragement.

Many are victims of ignorance more than anything else.

Matthew 28:20 KJV
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Gehazi was almost paralyzed with fear when the Syrian army came to arrest Elisha. But when his eyes popped open He could see the angels of God that encamped them, he was at rest.

Seeing into the realm of the spirit will always confer rest in the life of a believer.

(2). The future is great – that ugly situation is not going to remain like that forever. There is always a light at the end of a tunnel.

There is no weeping that is permitted to go beyond a night. Where you are is smaller than where God is taking you to.

Psalm 30:5 KJV
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Habakkuk 2:3 KJV
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

(3). Complains and worries will never move God – understand this truth, God is only moved by our faith.

Hannah was fretted and worried. Until she put a seal on her request, went home rejoicing her desire was not in view.

God hates Murmurers and grumblers. These category of people are programmed for destruction.

1 Corinthians 10:10 KJV
Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

Philippians 2:14 KJV
Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

Murmurings will further mess up your situations while complains will further complicate your matters.

(4). Continuity is the golden rule – Continuous, tireless and unrepentant obedience are the hallmarks of a true believer.

James 1:25 KJV
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein , he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Both in dry and raining seasons you must continue in your covenant walk with God. You must remain committed to His instructions. That’s the way it works. It works like fire!

Your tomorrow is determined by the level of your obedience today. (Phil.2:7-10)

Habakkuk 3:17-18 KJV
Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: [18] Yet I will rejoice in the Lord , I will joy in the God of my salvation.

Finally, God is not a taskmaster, He is a paymaster. God does not use people; He blesses people.

Psalm 126:5-6 KJV
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. [6] He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him .
