WHY GIVE UP – IT WON’T ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING

Jos. 1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD, thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Luke 9:62  And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God

Oh, I know it is difficult for you right now, and I see all you are going through, but you must not give up.  It will accomplish nothing if you do.  I hung, bled, and died on the cross so that you might have My strength in such a time as this.  Don’t despair; you are not going through this alone.  I am aware of all that you are going through.  I assure you I have heard your cries and seen your tears.  Hold on My child, don’t give up nothing is too hard for Me.

I see how heavy your heart is, and the weight you are carrying is far too much for you.  Cast your burdens upon Me.  Give all to Me, and seek My face.  I will lead you through this valley. Release those things that you have struggled against and cannot change.  Know that I am your strength, and can provide all you need. I will be there when others turn away; I have been there when they have left you all alone.  I will be there when you can’t be there for yourself. There is nothing too hard for Me.

Now lift your face unto the hills from whence cometh your help and keep moving. Stand strong on My word and let the enemy know who you are. You are My chosen one. You are victorious because I am victorious within you. Do not let the enemy intimidate you any longer, be not afraid.  Move ahead with courage, boldness, and know beyond the shadow of a doubt that I am with you. And REMEMBER IF YOU GIVE UP IT WON’T ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING.

 

My Prayer Confession,

Heavenly Father, thank You for teaching me that giving up won’t accomplish anything. Oh Lord I know there is nothing too hard for You.   And because of You, I can press my way through the storm.  I know I don’t have to fight this battle on my own. When the load gets too heavy, I can come to You and cast my cares upon You.  Thank you Jesus for caring for me.
I pray the peace of Jesus will flood your soul and destroy any fears holding you back so the vision He has given you will come to pass.

STOP WORRYING AND WAIT

Be still.  The situations you face have caused you to be unsettled and anxious, and you are tending towards impulsiveness.  But, I say to you, wait on Me.  Wait, My children, until you hear My voice behind you saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”  Certainly, I will direct your steps and lead you forward.

LIVING PSALM 91 – MY STORY

The Lord Answered My Prayer
Scripture Reading Psalm 91

I overslept one morning after staying up late the night before working on some writing, and praying over some prayer requests that had come in.  I didn’t get into bed until 4 am, so imagine how surprised I was when I didn’t move when the alarm sounded off at 6:30 am.  I guess I was too tired to move.  Normally, I rise around 5:00 to begin praying and reading the Word, but that didn’t happen this morning. 

I reflected on last night and how tired I was when I fell into bed.  I was lying and just as I was about to fall asleep I remembered I hadn’t prayed.  Too sleepy to get out of the bed, I just started praying.  For some reason, this would not do; so I got up, knelt on the bed, and cried out to the Lord.  I grabbed my pillows and prayed over them.  I rubbed and prayed over the bed asking the Lord to protect my mind, and to minister to me as I slept.  The last thing I remember saying before I fell asleep last night was, “As I lay my head upon the pillow speak Lord for your servant is listening.”  I said this over and over as I looked over at the clock; it was 4 am; I closed my eyes and fell asleep.

Shortly after that, I heard music playing softly, and I allowed it to minister to my spirit.  Not realizing that it was the music from the alarm which had gone off an hour before.  I didn’t feel like moving, so I just laid there.  “How wonderful is this”?  I thought as I listened to the worship music.  I sang along with the song for a while, and then finally opened my eyes.  Oh no!  It was 6:30; I had overslept.  I got up and quickly got myself ready.  Instead of going to my prayer room, I went downstairs praying a little prayer as I started breakfast.  To be honest, the only thing on my mind was sleep. 

After I fixed breakfast, I went returned upstairs with the intention of saying another quick prayer and falling back in bed for a while.  However, instead of doing that, I entered my prayer room, and I sat down at the computer.  My Bible was still open on the computer table, so I picked it up to read, then changed my mind and decided I needed to check the computer to see if any prayer requests came in overnight.  I didn’t see any, so I started to read my scriptures and pray when suddenly I found myself on my knees crying out and praying to the Lord.  The Holy Spirit took over and began to minister to me.  He opened my eyes and caused me to see a vision, which I will share with you now.

Inspirational Story – Right Now

I’ve had some really hard days since my brother went home to the Lord. Yes, I have rejoiced, and still, rejoice that he is where we all long to be, but I miss him more than words can say.  I miss the weekly phone calls and the silly things we used to talk about. I miss my brother,  Nevertheless, in the midst of my grieving, the Lord came to see about me and led me to this story that I shared with you a while ago. 

As I read through it, my reading turned into prayer and praying into rejoicing in the Lord. Like David, I had to encourage myself in the Lord. I won’t say that all my sad days are behind me, but I do know the Lord sees me and will help me get through them. Amen and thank you Jesus. I pray this blesses you as it blessed me. 

Inspirational Story – RIGHT NOW
Daniel 10:12 Then he said, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel.  Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your request has been heard in heaven.  I have come in answer to your prayer.
 
Oh, Heavenly Father, please help me to write this so that they will know that you are real.  Help me to say this the way you want it to be told so people will be delivered and set free.  Right now, Lord, RIGHT NOW.   It was 4:00 am and the Lord had awakened me, and I found myself crying out in the spirit “RIGHT NOW LORD, RIGHT NOW.”
