You know I am about nothing BUT TO ENCOURAGE each of you, including myself...so ponder on this word below and TAKE IT BY FAITH BELIEVING GOD IS ABOUT TO SHOW UP AND SHOW OFF WITH THE ANSWERS TO OUR PRAYERS AS WE CONTINUE TO SEEK HIM FIRST!
There’s a whole process of the “unfolding” of the new thing that sometimes requires time. We seem to be right in the middle of that. God promised a new thing, a new destiny, new blessings and HIS new plan for us, but for some reason it’s just not showing up at our front door. Persevere, because a reward awaits you. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
DON'T GIVE UP - JUST HANG ON AS OUR BLESSING IS ABOUT TO SHOW - DON'T GIVE UP! When I was a boy my father taught me one of the best faith-lessons I have ever learned. “Son, the hardest part of faith is always the last half hour. When you feel like giving up; when you feel that your life is off track; when you don’t hear from God anymore, just hold on — because the last half hour is the hardest part of faith.”

Have you ever driven on a long journey? You go hundreds of miles and the trip is going just fine. Finally you see a sign that says your destination is just 30 miles down the road. That last 30 miles can seem almost as long as the 500 miles you have just traveled. The last half hour of a journey is sometimes the hardest because you’re almost there and you have to hold on just a little longer.
“For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised” (Hebrews 10:36, ESV).
I know some of you feel like giving up but I want to encourage you to hold on just a little longer. You feel like the dream is not going to come to reality but God is saying to you, “Just hold on, child. Hold on, church. Hold on a few more minutes. Hold on a few more weeks — because your victory is just around the corner!”
I cannot tell you how many people I have met who had a word from God but the answer was slow in coming, they abandoned hope and now are living a life of mediocrity. If they had held on just a little longer, all the things God had spoken would have come true. But they have withdrawn from faith; withdrawn from valor; withdrawn from vision and purpose. They are living a life of quiet desperation because they no longer trust God or believe Him for great things. They are moving in their own strength without the power of God.
Do not give up hope. God is saving the best for last! David Wilkerson
Lord Jesus, we come before your throne of grace and acknowledge you as the Prince of Peace, as the One who has authority to grant us peace that surpasses our understanding. As we look to You, please guard our hearts and minds. We bring our concerns, anxieties and questions to You and ask for wisdom. We do not place these things between You and us, but before You, Lord God.
As we look to You Lord Jesus, may our faces be radiant. We believe that Your perfect love casts out all fear, so we ask that You would pour out a fresh batch of Your love. According to Your word, we submit to You, and we resist the devil, so that he will flee from us. We resist the spirit of fear and intimidation that shows itself as anxiety and needling thoughts. We throw it off of us and our families, in Jesus’ name.
Father God, may the supremacy of Your peace come down upon us now. We thank You for the ever-present Holy Spirit, who is here to help and comfort us. Because of the virtue of the purchasing price of Jesus, we receive. Bless Your Holy name Lord God! Amen.
