I would like for you to listen to these two women who exemplify strength through their stories. Stop and embrace the moment because you don’t know how your life could change in an instant!!
It’s so hard when you find yourself stuck in a situation and you just feel like God can’t hear you. You pray and you pray and you pray harder and it feels like they are hitting the ceiling and fall right back into your lap. We all go through it, but the one thing I want you to know is that we need to have childlike faith like stated in the podcast. That little girl kept her faith and her mom eventually came. Keep fighting, keep praying, and most of all keep believing. Never stop believing just because of a temporary circumstance. And yes, I said temporary. Even though that situation may seem permanent, that trouble will not last forever. Nothing last forever. So, just as much as you have hard times, you will have just as many great moments and even more. God is by your side, Jesus died for you to have a more intimate relationship with him, and the Comforter has come to be that source of strength to help you. You are not facing life alone even though it will feel like it. God is an awesome God one who can do all things through the sound of His voice one time. It only takes one time with God, that’s how grand and majestic He is. Your prayers will get answered, but there will be plenty of moments that it will take time. Fast, get a prayer partner, and be confident in the Lord and your situation. It will get better because it always will.

Psalm 136- “God’s mercy endures for ever”
The value of endurance lies within the walls of “I can’t go on” and “I have to keep pushing through.” If we look in the bible endurance is one of the things that most everyone had to deal with. Moses dealt with endurance when he had to constantly go to Pharaoh to let the Israelites go as well as travelling with the Israelites as they complained and during the journey. Job is another person in the book who had to endure through physical, emotional, and spiritual pain as he lost his family members, a major part of his stock, and when he had gotten sick. Finally, Jesus is the true definition of endurance when he dealt with the persecution of others and when he died on the cross for all of our sins. He endured with the weight of the world on his shoulders as he endured through as the supernatural and divine power stepped in.
Endurance is something that everyone will face as we walk through life. Endurance doesn’t come when things are going well. Endurance is born when we are faced with the challenges of life and have to persevere. Even in our most darkest moments when we feel like giving up, even in our moments when we feel like it is so easy to just let go, that’s when endurance is born. Endurance is born when we feel the weight of the world, when sweat is dripping down our face, when tears are streaming down our cheeks, when we don’t feel like waking up, when pain becomes attached to us. Endurance is born when we are in the midst of the storm. We will have to endure during life because Jesus endured.
We should strive to be more like Jesus. He endured and He is the source of our strength so we can endure. I know you can you and most of all Jesus knows that you can too.
Just because life or more specifically that situation gets tough doesn’t mean that it’s not the purpose that God has planned for you. DON’T RUN! Be strong and courageous warriors and stand up against that obstacle. You are God’s child. Moses went back and forth and made excuses at first telling God that he could not speak well, and that the children of Israel would not listen, and even when the Pharaoh said no the first time, but you have to keep going back. As long as it is in the will of God, it is meant for you to keep trying. Moses kept getting decline before being able to get the children of Israel out of Egypt. And then it took years and many generations to finally get there!!!
So what am I saying? Don’t give up! It’s still the beginning of 2016, things might not look up now but don’t give up. You have so much more strength that is in you for the road ahead. Moses had to learn not to give up. And I think that we should see a lot of similarities between Moses and the obstacles in our lives. Don’t give up!
God says, “I won’t give up on you so you shouldn’t give up on you. Keep me and my commandments first!”
Life can be hard as a matter of fact very hard at times. It seems like your world may be falling apart and that everything that you are doing is falling into a million pieces! I know how it feels but I just want to tell you that you are not a broken vessel. Yes, we are all vessels of Jesus Christ the king of all kings but we are never broken vessels. As long as we put God first, live by his word and commandments, and most of all live a life focused on him we will be okay. We …as humans living in the natural world find ourselves living a life consumed and revolved around the standards of the natural world. We are always forced to think about what we can make happen and not about what God WILL make happen for us! We are not broken vessels. The world may try to tell us we are broken, the devil may try to tell us we are broken, society will try to make us broken but we are NOT broken. And nothing can break us because our strength comes from the Lord!
What is happening to me? Are you asking that question?
God says, “Your spiritual journey reflects your physical life! Every time that you connect with me, the devil will try to distract you or take your focus off of me and put into the your daily worries and situations. This is a test to see if you will come back to me. This is a test to your faith in me over your situations. This will show me if you come to me even when you are distracted, faced do…wn to the ground. There are so many times that you will face this. Every time that you connect with me, I give you a piece of strength for that next obstacle that you will be facing. I don’t give you enough strength to last a lifetime because pride will come and disconnect the daily connection that you we have each day. Strength lies in the name of Jesus and the word that I have provided for you. So what am I doing? Don’t worry about what I am doing. Keep doing what you are doing and it will come to pass!
God says, “My Sweet Child, I am working through you!” Those tears that you have belong to me. Every time a tear drops from your eyes, I am catching them in my hands. I blow upon those tears, and those tears of suffering immediately turn into tears of joy. These same tears of joy will pour upon your life from the abundant glory that I have. Those same tears will be converted into anointed blessings that you did not know existed. Those same tears will edify you. Those same tears will allow you to have more favor and anointing over you life. My sweet child, don’t get weary, just rest in me and I will give you strength. It seems like you are walking in the midst of darkness, but the devil is just blindfolding you. It may seem like there is not a light at the end of the tunnel, but I am using this time to shine THROUGH you to show you how to trust me. This is the only way that I can use this as a teaching mechanism for you at this time. Do you love me? Do you trust me? Let me shine through you. And you will be able to see all of the things that you can do!”
My God is an awesome GOD!!!!!
