DON’T GIVE UP!
By Rev’d Olusola Areogun
You may be starting from scratch and things look dead, but if God authored it, don’t give up or abandon it! Don’t become slothful. One of the things that happen when things don’t look like they are changing is that men become slothful and weary in doing the things of God. Some people stop going to church, reading the Bible, and praying, thinking that God has failed them. No! God does not fail anybody and He is not going to start with you!
Well, you may have to endure some opposition from the devil, you may have to endure the assault of the enemy, but you can be certain of the outcome. God holds the outcome in His hands; the devil cannot change it. If you will not allow the devil to rewrite the outcome while you are going through the process of faith, then the outcome will be as God ordained it for you and it will be well with you.
I want you to take encouragement, consolation, and draw strength from the life of Abraham. If God could make of him who was “as good as dead (Heb. 11:12),” something innumerable as the stars of heaven and as the sand of the seashore, then God can turn your life into something wonderful.
That is the truth I want you to hold on to. I want you to receive that in faith and rise again. All hope is not lost and the future will be better than the past.
PRAYER: Lord, I know You will always come through for me and I pray that my condition begins to conform to what You have called it in Jesus’ name. Amen!
