YOU are looking back and see what you have been through, thinking of what was said to you, wondering if things will ever change for the good.
It seems like giving up is the best way to escape all the broken empty promises in your life.
Those you have trusted, those close to your heart, start to give up on you.
You turn to every side, but there is no way out.
You start to believe that it is over with you.
Thoughts of ending your life become unbearable, your heart starts to swell with grief, heartache and pain because you really think it is over.
Listen, God has a surprise for you:
You are not giving up, you are not giving in.
God said that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will raise a standard against him. (Isaiah 59:19-20).
God is about to raise a standard in your family.
He is about to raise a standard concerning your finances, education, health, ministry and your marriage.
When nobody seems to love you, when nobody sees the good in you, let them wait and see, because the standard is going to make them believe that you are serving the living God.
God is on your side, He is fighting your battles.
As God said in Exodus 14:13: “Do not be afraid, stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today, you will never see again.”
I challenge you to shift your focus today.
Think good thoughts, meditate on what God has said to you through His word, how He has been there and has never left you, how He has been protecting you from things that were meant to kill and destroy you, how God was strong for you when you were weak.
God is about to sweep you off your feet. You will be amazed.
Do not give up. Just stand still and see Him lifting up a standard in all areas of your life.
