Okay, I mean, do not quit believing. Don’t quit pressing on.
There will be times when you want to pack it in and whatever happens, happens. Wrong attitude. One thing ministry, being a wife and mother has taught me is patience. YES, a whole load of patience and persistent faith. Some people may think you’re crazy for holding on, for believing and searching for that hand in the cloud, that sign from God that your status will change.
Don’t let naysayers shake or break you. Keep focused, your face between your knees in intense prayer like Elijah and BELIEVE GOD!
Elijah prophesied an abundance of rain and sent his servant to go look toward the sea. The servant came back and said he couldn’t see anything, but at the seventh time, God’s power was shown.
Imagine checking your emails several times daily for that job appointment you have been waiting for. Imagine calling your agent for update on a business deal and all you hear is “No, haven’t heard anything.” Infact, some people have already told you to forget it. The deal isn’t gonna happen.
Imagine trying multiple times for a baby. You have spent thousands of dollars. You have tried and cried. It feels like a stigma. Guess what ==> “Keep looking,” said Elijah, “seven times if necessary” (1 Kings 18:43 MSG).
YOU DO NOT QUIT.
At times like these, stay connected to uplifting people. Reject ALL pity-party invitations. Listen to encouraging messages. Study God’s Word, highlight His promises and speak them into existence in your life. Personalize them and call them out..
Question: Aren’t you going to do this for you? Isn’t it about that time?
