Don’t Give Up! God’s Got You!

by | Jun 9, 2018

Luke 18;27
But he said, “What is impossible with men is possible with God.”

No matter where you are today, no matter what you are facing ~ Don’t quit, don’t give up and certainly don’t bow to defeat! There are times we are told by God to be still but there are also many times when He is trying to tell you to lift your head up, it isn’t over yet and He wants you to be the change you are so desperately looking for! Nothing would make Satan happier than for you to give up! You, with God leading and guiding you and with the Holy Spirit living within you are stronger than any force coming against you! Choose to believe that God’s got this! He will give you the strength and wisdom you need!

Sometimes we need to stand tall and hold our ground, putting on every square inch of the armor of God found listed in Ephesians 6:10-18. We need to just stand firm in what we know God’s word says is true and hold on to our faith and trust in Him!

Other times we need to move! Sometimes you need to move out of a situation and move to a safer place to better be able to serve Him and protect your family. Sometimes we are called to move to places that don’t seem very safe as missionaries. Whichever one of those you may feel led to do, do it, what are you waiting for, just follow God’s lead and He will provide the way! Sometimes we find ourselves waiting for God to move in a situation like our finances and God is trying to get us to move and be the change we are looking for! What can you do today that would make a difference in moving toward the change you need or toward the call you are feeling God is putting on your heart? If you are struggling financially what can you do today to create a positive change? Is there something you were going to buy that maybe you could wait on? How about your marriage? Are you fed up? What can you do to make a change today? If you and or your children are being abused I would suggest finding a counselor or women’s shelter nearby and taking that stand to say you won’t allow that in your life anymore and that if your husband wants to work things out, he needs to get help. Set some boundaries that are healthy for you and your family, including your spouse! If you are just feeling as though there’s no love left or there has been infidelity find someone who can walk through it with you, whether it is a pastor you trust or a Christian counselor, find someone today to help. If you feel as though things are just stagnant, you reach out, do something that you used to do back in the day when you were trying to win that person over, will that be easy, maybe not but you will certainly more than likely be shocked at the response. Take one step today to be the change.

The best is yet to come, but you can’t always just sit on your bum waiting for it, sometimes God wants you to be the change!
