Do Not Give Up

     When all seems lost and there is no hope of resurrection, know that I am God. I can do all things. I will lead you through the valley of the shadow of death, but do not fear it. I am training you to hope and walk in faith even when you see no evidence of My word coming to pass.

     Did not My disciples have to go through this season as they learned to walk with Me on the heights. They spoke My truth but doubt hindered My manifest power to change the circumstances. They continued on with Me and their faith and strength I expanded to walk beyond what man said is possible, but believing only on what I said is possible.

     Look at the circumstance that does not seem to budge and begin to proclaim My words over it – My truth will prevail, My word will not return to Me void. Did I not even tell My prophet to speak to the dry bones and make them live again. When you speak fear and doubt and reinforce how bleak the situation looks that is not My word, but you are speaking forth the truth of the enemy and heaping doubt upon doubt rather than precept upon precept.

     Believe Me, read My word with fresh eyes and an open heart believing that all that I said I plan and am willing to do. Do not limit Me. Do not grow weary of well doing, for at the appointed time, when your faith is built up, when you are refined to the point of being able to receive My blessing and My manifest power, I will unleash My will upon you, I will change your circumstance, I will do all that I said I would do.

     The battle is a spiritual battle in the mind and heart – you wrestle not against flesh and blood but against powers, principalities, rulers of the darkness. Do not come into agreement with them over sickness, circumstance, or situation. Come into agreement with Me.

     Let me teach you how I change circumstances through My people. I do this in the details of the individual and on a grander scale for a whole nation. Oh watch how great I Am, praise Me, believe Me, speak My truth in a situation that seems not to bear My truth and I will change the darkness to light. Do not give up, lift your head for your redemption draweth nigh.

  • And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”  Luke 21:27-28
  • Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  Hebrews 11:1
