“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
Someone today, you are going through for what seems like forever. You have praised, you have prayed, you have fasted, you have decreed and declared the Word of the Lord.
Now you are waiting – waiting on God for deliverance, for breakthroughs – waiting on God for manifestation of all that He has promised you.
But the days seems like weeks. The weeks seem like months. The months seem like years.
You have been asking yourself if there is something else that you need to do. You feel tired sometimes but you continue to trust God. We want to encourage you today to praise your way through. Press your way through. You have come too far to give up now. You have been through too much to throw in the towel. The darkest hour is always just before the dawn. God is about to come through for you, press your way through. Though you may not feel like it just praise your way through.
Do not even entertain the thought of quitting. Don’t you dare give way to the thoughts of giving up. Quitting is not an option. Your life may seem very challenging but know that be encouraged because the path of the just leads to heaven but the path of the wicked leads to hell. God who has brought you this far is able to see you through. God is a divine deliverer. “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.” Psalm 34:19 Yes, it may seem like it has been a long season of attacks and trials but know that God is able in one moment to give you the breakthroughs you need and turn things around for your good.
God wants you today to press on regardless of what it looks like, sounds like, smells like or looks like. It may seem like it is impossible, but remember that there is nothing too hard for the Lord. Think back on some of the situations that God brought you out of. He is the same God, He has not changed. Come on; don’t allow discouragement and depression to overtake you. Don’t allow your hope to be drowned in a sea of doubt and despair.
Speak to your soul and spirit aloud if you have to and just tell them to bless the Lord. Arise in the name of Jesus and press on in the Lord. The breakthroughs are almost here, and believe me when I tell you that the windows of heaven are about to open and the ladder of blessings will descend from heaven for those who are living holy and righteous before the Lord.
For those who have been waiting and waiting know that you will reap a bountiful harvest from the seeds of righteousness that you have sown. Those who have been obedient to God, you are about to eat the good of the land.
God loves you and He is perfecting everything that concerns you. Be confident today that God has not only got your back but He has you. May God strengthen you as you press on in Him.
