“Don’t give Up on Him—Give in”

on September 6, 2012

Joshua 1: 3, 5, 8

3 I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. 5 No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. 8 Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

  Take a few moments and ask yourself, “Has God gave up on me?”  In the same breath answer this question, “Have YOU gave up on Him?”

 I had a conversation with a young lady who told me she was tired of praying.  She mentioned, “I’m still here, but, I have to take a break from praying, it doesn’t work for me.”

 I didn’t go into detail with her circumstance, however, as humans we fail to realize, regardless how the enemy may try to detour you from your relationship with Christ—God still sits high and looks low.  It’s easy to lose focus, when you place “material or carnal things” before God, it becomes greed or lush.  The things you go after began to overshadow–what God has originally tried to give you. Has it ever occurred to you that we do so much to get glory or shine?  Stop trying to expedite your blessing(s). It’s not about you! Instead of plotting on what you can get…think about how you can give in to him!! God gives and He can take away.  Be thankful for what he has already given.  Don’t become overly anxious.

 So my response to the young lady was, “Don’t give up on Him, but Give in to Him!”  At the very time you’re tired of praying, it cultivates faith and strength that will confuse the enemy, because you can, “Give up on the Enemy and Give in to God!”  Then God will allow the things you touch and people you meet to become, ‘blessed’ if it’s of Him.

 Make today the best day—you won’t see it again!!!!  Don’t allow people to cause you to stop praying!!! Keep praying and watch God move on your behalf! Remember:  “People may change, but God remains the same. God will give you more than you can imagine, when you submit to Him. Try following Him more than Twitter!” Today, encourage someone to move forward to PURPOSE!! When you Pray, have Patience, then Persevere, then await Him to reveal your Purpose!!!
