You may be starting from scratch and things look dead but if God authored it, don’t give up or abandon it. Don’t become slothful. That is one of the things that happens when things don’t look like they are changing. Men become slothful and weary in doing the things of God. There are people who stop going to church, stop reading the Bible and stop praying thinking God has failed them. No! God does not fail anybody and He is not going to start with you!
Well, you may have to endure some opposition from the devil, you may have to endure the assault of the enemy, but you can be certain of the outcome. God holds it in His hands, the devil cannot change the outcome. If you will not allow the devil to rewrite the outcome while you are going through the process of faith, then the outcome will be as God ordained it for you and it will be well with you.
I want you to take encouragement, consolation and strength from the life of Abraham. If God could make of him who was “as good as dead,” something innumerable as the stars of heaven and as the sand of the seashore, then God can turn your life into something wonderful. That is the truth I want you to hold on to. And I want you to receive it in faith and rise up again. All hope is not lost; the future will be better than the past.
Lord, I know you will always come through for me and I pray that my condition begins to conform to what you have called it in Jesus’ name. Amen.
