Topic: Don’t Quit. Keep Believing [TREM 12 August 2018 Daily Devotional]
“Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.” Romans 4:18
According to the scriptures, Abraham was a 75-year-old man when God called him out from his Father’s house to a strange land to start afresh. It wasn’t easy for him but he did it anyway. He had to stretch himself. He refused to accept ‘qui sera sera’ (what will be, will be). Beloved, never settle for what will be will be. Something big is about to come out of you.
When Abraham stretched, new things came out. Where have you seen someone of a hundred years giving birth? Today we refer to him as the father of faith. It didn’t come easy. He stretched. They ridiculed him and called him names but he stretched. He kept on moving ahead. He moved out of the dark corners of his life and moved into Gods divine plan and purpose for his life.
Many believers quit too early. Once they encounter a small challenge they say it is no more possible and they give up. Many have thrown away million dollar businesses, great opportunities and great doors that God opened for them because they met with obstacles. Child of God, understand that there is light out of darkness. Don’t you understand that if you stay at it, by virtue of your heritage victory will be yours? You belong to a heritage where there is no defeat. A heritage in which evil bows before you and the wicked bows at your gate. A heritage where obstacles, impediments, and failure are removed.
We don’t walk by sight but by faith. We are people of grace. God goes out of His way to work things out for us. When we come to a point where there is no way out the ‘way maker’ makes the way. Don’t say you are finished because you saw an obstacle. Maintain your focus. Keep your eyes single and you will see God fight your battles. I declare to you that you will shock your generation. Sooner than you expect your testimony will happen.
