Don’t Quit!

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9 KJV

Never get so discouraged to the point of giving up on God and yourself. Perhaps you’ve have sown seeds of righteousness, finances, faith, etc.; yet seemingly, there is no manifested harvest, no measurable return on your giving, and no answers to your prayers—what ever you do: don’t quit!

When bad things happen in life, or when it seems like nothing is happening, don’t get weary, or weak in faith, discouraged and exhausted. Never lose courage; never lose heart; never give up; never quit. Just know that this season will change and you will bring forth good fruit in your season (Gen. 8:22; Ps. 1:3). “Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise” (Heb. 10:35-36).

The Scriptures offer you at least three good reasons to never quit: (1) All Heaven is watching you, and waiting for your completion of the “race of life” (Heb. 11:39-40; 12:1); (2) Your circumstances are subject to change. Bad things don’t last always (2 Cor. 4:16-18); and, (3) The Lord Himself will renew your strength if you wait on Him, i.e., place your hope and trust in Him (Isa. 40:31).

Don’t ever quit. Continue to cast your seeds of faith in the “ground” and leave it there. Your due season will come with a mighty harvest (Mark 4:26-29). Harvest is the manifestation of the seeds that you have sown; it is the fulfillment of everything you need and desire; and, harvest is manifested wholeness that comes to all who overcome weariness. Don’t quit!

God Is Up to Something Good!

Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, Who only does wondrous things!  And blessed be His glorious name forever! And let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen. Psalm 72:18-19 NKJV

God is a good God, and does only wondrous things—that which is wonderful, marvelous, and awesome. Even when you incur the bad and evil, God is still a good God. He is always up to something good. So, don’t give up on your dreams and visions, because your dreams and visions haven’t given up on you. Could it be that God is getting you ready for the fulfillment of your vision? While the vision is ready for you, you may not be ready for the vision. When it seems like nothing is happening, don’t quit—just feel the joy because God is up to something good!

The life of Joseph reminds us that God is always up to something good. Joseph was hated by his brothers, thrown into a pit, sold into slavery, and falsely imprison; notwithstanding, God was up to something good (See Genesis 37:3-11). The same way God brought Joseph out and fulfilled his dream, God will surely bring you out, too. No matter your circumstance; no matter what evil and evil people come against you, God is working on your behalf, in the background, to manifest your dream and vision. Others may have meant it for evil, but God intends it for your good (Genesis 37:23; 50:20).

Because God is up to something good, all things work together for your good (Rom. 8:28). “Surely the wrath of man shall praise You; with the remainder of wrath You shall gird Yourself” (Ps. 76:10). No matter what evil befalls you, man can only do to you and against you what God allows—no more, no less! Nothing shall circumvent your God-given dream and vision. In due season, it shall come to pass (Gal. 6:9). So, “in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thess. 5:18).

God doesn’t speed up difficult trying season, but joy makes the time seem so much shorter. And remember, the greater the vision, the more thorough the preparation. Preparation is never lost time because God is up to something good!

In the Darkroom

 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5 NKJV

Before the advent of smart-phones and computerized tablets, people could only use cameras to take pictures. After the picture was taken, the film in the camera had to be developed in a “darkroom.” A darkroom is a room made completely dark to allow the processing of the light-sensitive photographic film.  Once the film is developed, it can be seen in the light as a picture or photograph.

In the Scriptures, night speaks of darkness, and morning and day symbolize light (Gen. 1:3-5). When you’re trusting God for a manifestation of a promise, and you’re standing on His Word and nothing seems to be happening but silence, inactivity, and a loss of vision—don’t panic!—you’re having a darkroom experience.

God-given dreams and visions are developed in the darkroom (Prov. 29:18). After pictures are taken in the light, they are developed in the darkroom—even though you don’t see anything, God is developing you and your dream (2 Cor. 4:18). God is faithful. “His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life” (Text) and He who gave you the vision in the light will encourage you with His promise in the darkroom (Isa. 41:10).

In the darkroom, keep saying what you see by faith. Confess it with confidence while being patient (Heb. 10:35-36). True confidence is continuing to be outspoken, with bluntness and assurance about what you believe. Then combine this confidence with patience (hupomone, Greek), i.e., steadfastness,, constancy, and endurance. Don’t give up! Endure the process because “weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Text).

So, in the darkroom what is God doing? God is getting you ready for the fulfillment of the vision. While the vision is ready for you, you’re not ready for it. When nothing seems to be happening, feel the joy! (James 1:2-4). God is up to something good (Jas. 5:11; Job 42”10). Just like He did for Job; He will turn your captivity; He will turn your night into day!

Nearsighted or Farsighted?

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10 KJV

There are times when we don’t see anything happening in fulfillment of what God promised. And, because we don’t see it, we assume that it isn’t so—not so! These are the times that we need to be more spiritually farsighted than nearsighted. Shame on us for being so spiritually nearsighted, that we lose sight of the vision.

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, to be nearsighted is “to be able to see near things more clearly than distant ones” (Myopic). Farsighted (Hyperopia) is the opposite where you see far off things more clearly than the near ones. When you are spiritually nearsighted, you need “spiritual eye glasses” (2 Cor. 4:18).

Now, the farsighted will always remember three unchangeable things about God: God doesn’t lie; He doesn’t change His mind (Num. 23:19); and, God is not mocked (Gal. 6:7-9).  But on the other hand, the nearsighted will always forget the promise of God. They are prone to discouragement. They get weary in well doing because of things and circumstances affecting them beyond their control, but God has promised (Isa. 41:10).

If the nearsighted would lift their vision far and high and see by faith into the eternal realm, trusting God, they would see that awesome things are happening in the invisible realm of the spirit (2 Kings 6:14-17). Nearsightedness will cause you to waver, to revert to human reasoning, and tempt you to help God out—try to make it happen—especially during those dormant seasons of silence and inactivity (Gen. 16:1-4, 15-16).

Because you don’t see it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t already exist. Just refuse to doubt and fear, and believe that God is with you; do not get discouraged, for God is with you; He will strengthen and help you; and, God will uphold the “farsighted” with the “right hand” of His righteousness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WORD POWER With Dr. Jerry Miah Williams – When God Speaks

Sow a Seed Reap a Harvest

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:7-9 NKJV

There are times in life when it seems like nothing is happening in fulfillment of what God said. During these difficult times you begin to wonder, what’s the use? Perhaps you said to yourself or to others, “I’ve tried to be faithful. I’ve done all that I know to do: I’ve been praying, faithfully attending church, and regularly tithing. I’ve been doing everything that I thought I should do but nothing seems to be happening, so what should I do?”   Keep sowing your seed!

Don’t give in to deception because God is not mocked. Resist discouragement and weariness because you will surely reap a harvest in due season, if you don’t lose heart (Text). There are three unchangeable things about God: (1) God doesn’t lie (Num. 23:19), (2) God doesn’t change His mind (2), and God cannot be mocked (Gal. 6:7). What God has promised to you is true; and, what God has spoken concerning you shall come to pass—not in your time (Chronos) but in His time (Kairos)—at the set time; at the proper time and season.

Cast your seed in the ground of your heart and leave it there and your harvest will come (Mark 4:26-29).  Never uproot your seed. Something secretly and powerfully is happening inside the seed. Life is in the seed, not the soil. E.g., when the seed of God’s Word is planted in your heart, you receive new life, for it is God who creates that life and watches over His Word to perform it (Jer. 1:12). Sow a seed and reap a harvest!
