DON'T GIVE UP

Isaiah 40:29-31
"He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in The Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings, they will walk and not be faint."

It's okay for us to feel a little tired of trying, a little weary of praying prayers that seem to get unanswered and the pages of the Bible looking like it is written in Arabic; don't give up because God hasn't given up on you. To the contrary He is been listening  to all of our prayers and as a matter of fact, it's often the prayers we offer in the lowest point in our walk with Him that pleases Him the most.

Our heavy heart is no secret to the God who loves you and l. David wrote in Psalm 38:9, "All my longings lie open before you, O Lord; my sighing is not hidden from you." God is asking you and l today to hope and trust once again in Him even though we haven't seen any amazing results in recent months and weeks, even though our emotions say, " what's the use?"  and giving up seems more appealing than seeking Him right now.

Nevertheless, I want to encourage you and myself to obey the word of the Lord and hope once again in Him, keeping in with His word, returning to prayer and intimacy with Him, confessing our sins, sharing fellowship with God's children and sooner than later He will surprise us with a renewal of strength and cause us to soar on wings and not to faint. He will cause us to experience His joy more than we can handle. Lets remain faithful by trusting in Him as wait on Him to fill up every emptiness in our heart once again.

God hasn't given up on us, so lets not give up on Him either. Lets continue to seek Him in prayer and in His word today for a fresh perspective.
