Are you GOING THROUGH something?
Have you ever had days that you just wanted to give up?
Give up on your dreams? Your vision?
Give up on your hopes? Your goals?
Have you ever wanted to give up on your marriage? Your children?
Have you ever just wanted to drop everything and walk off your job?
Are there days when you feel your money will never be right?
Have you ever wanted to give up on your health?
Do you have a weakness that are soooo strong that sometimes you tell yourself…
Just a quick word of encouragement…please don’t give up!
Look at what God told Joshua after the death of Moses as Israel was poised to enter their promise.
Joshua 1:5-9 (NKJV)
5 No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. 6 Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. 7 Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. 8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Even though they were about to enter their promise, God told them that they would still GO THROUGH some things. But, the same divine encouragement God gave them holds true for us today.
