“Cast not away, therefore, your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward.”
Hebrews 10:35 (KJV)
Beloved, no matter what you are passing through, God will show up for you. It doesn’t matter what the enemy brings your way, know that it is not your end.
I want to encourage you from the scriptures to refuse to give up. Stand your ground until you see the salvation of the Lord which He has promised you. Many times when we are faced with challenges or roadblocks that the enemy brings our way, we are tempted to throw up our hands and say it is not working. However, the fact that you are limited as a man does not mean that God is also limited. The God you serve never comes late. When He appears on the scene, it is to throw His weight around for your sake. Therefore, never think for once that the enemy has won the battle over your life.
The strategy of the enemy is to continually suggest to you that God has abandoned you or that you will end the way you are now so that you can slow down in your commitment to God. The plan of God for your life is that you will rule, reign, and remain at the cutting edge. Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 10:5 said, ‘’casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”(KJV).m Child of God, you must cast down every thought and imagination of poverty, frustration, discouragement, and hopelessness in every area of your life.
Don’t forget that you are a product of your thoughts. If you think the thoughts of death, get ready to die. But if you think thoughts of life, then get ready to live. Proverbs 23:7 says, ’’For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:…’’ (KJV). Beloved, the question is, what are you thinking in your heart right now? Refuse to write yourself off because the God you serve is not limited like a man. He can bring to pass every Word He has spoken concerning your life. This is why He boldly declares in Isaiah 45:5 “I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me…” (KJV). He is the Almighty God.
