The time and seasons that we are in now to many is life threatening. Prices of almost all things are sky rocketing. Families find it difficult to cope and to survive. Famine is indeed the order of the day. I know that so many expectations are not being met. However i would like to assure you that God Almighty is still God and in absolute control of all things. Let me just ask you one simple question. Do you know how many unseen battles the Lord fought and won for you? They are uncountable.

Jesus consoles the weak
Jesus consoles the weak

Do you know that the devil did not intend for you to see this day and season but thank God you are not only seeing this day your better days are at hand. Let me tell you whether the devil likes it or not, “All things will definitely work together for your good” (Roms 8: 28).

As our topic for today says “Don’t Quit”, because quitters never win. It is too soon to quit. Don’t even contemplate it despite all you are going through. You may call it the worst period in your life while God may call it preparatory time for greater heights in your life.

One thing you should know is this; your darkest hour is nearer the day than you think. No wonder the Bible says, “Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning”.

You see, for every night there is a day. I remember clearly in the Bible that just when it was time for Jesus to complete His assignment here on earth He cried out to God and said father, how I wish this cup would pass me by but nevertheless not my will but your will be done, (Matt 26: 39). Jesus for a moment was willing to quit because of the magnitude of the task at hand but then He remembered that there is a greater glory ahead of Him.

The Bible says  “Looking unto Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God (Heb 12: 2). Jesus would not have received the joy and be where He is now if He had given up. Don’t give up. There is now still a miracle for you.

What about Joseph, God showed him vision that people including his family will bow before him. He believed it and waited patiently for it to happen. No sooner had he ended up in prison for no offense of his. If anybody had any reason to quit, it was Joseph. He was just a little over seventeen years but then he had to wait for thirteen good years to become the prime minister in a strange land. This must be a miracle. Listen, Joseph did not contest any election. The hand of God supernaturally worked behind the scene to get Joseph to the throne. The God that did this for Joseph will also do it for you if you don’t quit in Jesus name. Amen.

Remember the certain man at the pool of Bethesda. This man kept believing for his miracle for thirty eight years. Just when he thought it was his turn for the miracle, something else happens. But still the man kept pressing on, he refused to quit. He had only one thing in sight, his miracle. Every other person entered into the pool to receive their miracle but Jesus came into the scene and commanded the man to rise up, take up his bed and walk. This man believed that this miracle would come from the pool, but Jesus showed that you don’t have to receive your miracle the way others did. Don’t quit. Jesus has a miracle for you.

TESTIMONY:

I am writing to appreciate what God has used your message that comes up on the weekend Vanguard to do in my life for the past three years. I recall being hedged in valley of life but God’s word from your mouth brought me out and established me on Rock to stay. All the glory and honor be to God. The oil and the anointing will never run dry in your life in Jesus name. Elder F.I

Have you given your life to Jesus? If not, please pray this prayer. Father, I come to you as I am. I invite Jesus into my life to be my personal Lord and Saviour. Wash me cleanse with the blood of Jesus and empower me with the power of your Holy Spirit. Thank you Father for saving my soul and making me your child. Your prayer request and praise reports will be welcomed.
