Don’t Give Up

Philippians 4:13. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.


So Girl, what lies are you buying today?  Is there something that you have been dreaming of doing with your life that you have an amazing passion for but haven’t seemed to be able to find a way to do it so you have just given up?  Have you given up on finding “Mr. Right”?  Have you about given up on being cured of that illness you have been fighting?  Has the Fibromyalgia pain almost driven you to the point of no hope?  Have you about thrown in the towel on having a baby?  Have you given up on having true peace in your home?  Have you given up on your marriage?  Does that addiction seem to just beat you over the head some days?  What’s your poison today?

The reason I ask …… “what is your poison” is because all of those are poisonous thoughts!  They are all thoughts straight from Hell.  If God hasn’t told you “no”, and that doesn’t count closing a door or two, then you are not to give up!  There are doors that close that are meant to close but that doesn’t mean His answer is “No”!  If God is telling you “No” you will know it with every fiber of your being!  Ask Him for a verse in the Bible to show you if the answer is “no”, if this is something you are passionate about or if it is your health we are talking about!  Don’t just give up!  There is healing to be had!  Satan wants you to give up!  How much more effective for God would you be if you were able to have or do what you are striving for?  Then don’t give up!

We are so used to instant everything in this day and age that if we have to wait for something or we have to look for answers outside the box then we often seem to assume the answer is “no”.  I have watched some people with illnesses that pounce on the attitude of, “well, this is just my ‘thorn in the flesh’ that I will have to live with” and yet they are unwilling to try anything other than a medical doctor to get well!  If you are ill, you need to pray for God’s leading and then be open to the fact there may be someone who can help you that isn’t necessarily carrying a medical degree.  There are some great natural doctors out there, Bill and I even know of an Oncologist that created a natural medicine program because he was tired of watching people die of cancer.  

The point is; no matter what you are facing, don’t just give up!  God will strengthen you for the journey if you will just seek Him!  Don’t allow satan to have the victory today by throwing in the towel on your hopes and dreams!  Get fired up and fight!  Ask God to show you the way!  Ask Him to give you the strength you need, He has promised to give it to you!  Go for it….. the best is yet to come!
