Yesterday I read a post from a friend whom I met on Facebook several years ago. He was in Washington DC having a great time with his family.
About three years ago he was diagnosed with cancer and needed a bone marrow transplant.
I remember him telling me that the worst thing anyone could do is lose hope. He said that he is a soldier and he was always looking for the next battle to confront it head on.
There is no surrender to the enemy. Then he quoted a promise in Genesis 28:15 that the Lord gave to him. His life is now a testimony for Jesus because quitting was not an option for him.
Many of you feel as if you are at the breaking point. The tests and trials have been relentless and seem so overwhelming, but Jesus, the Lord of the breakthrough says;
“I see your struggles and I understand the burdens, hardships and difficulties and even the verbal attacks that have come against you.
Trust in Me because no matter what the situation looks like in the natural I will not let you fall, fail or be consumed by adversity.
My hand is upon you and I will complete that which I have begun in your life.
Although the storms may be raging all around you, the battle may be fierce and the warfare may appear to be intensifying, do not panic but be still and listen for My voice.
I speak in the midst of the storms. Do not allow anything to derail you from the leading of My Spirit.
Many of you have had sleepless nights worrying about situations in your life. Do not allow the evil one to bring fear, condemnation, tormenting thoughts and voices during the night.
Many of you are concerned about your future and some have physical issues that the doctors said were terminal but nothing is impossible for those who believe.
Do not retreat, but continue to pursue what I have placed in your heart to do. These storms shall pass.
Just as the wise man who obeyed My word were steadfast and unaffected when the storms came, know that I will strengthen you as you stand immovable and trust Me to bring you through.
Do not bow to the opposition or break under the pressure. Just as grapes are compressed in the wine-press through a process of crushing, these times will bring forth much fruit in your life as you endure, stay strong and stay steadfast,”
says the Lord.
“Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you,” Genesis 28:15.
“If you faint in the day of adversity, Your strength is small,” Proverbs 24:10.
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand,” Ephesians 6:10-13.
Blessings in Christ Jesus,
