Refresher- God said that it\'s time 4 this again: DO NOT GIVE UP! KEEP BELIEVING! From: Suzi Clucas 14 Aug 2009 (12:00)
DO NOT GIVE UP! KEEP BELIEVING!

The Bible doesn\'t say that once we\'re Christian we will no longer have troubles, no, God\'s Word says \"Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall FEAR no evil, for though art with me...\" (psalm 23). Jesus spoke frequently about the persecutions we would suffer through following Him: \"Blessed are you when people insult you and speak all kinds of evil against you because of Me... for that is how they treated the prophets before you... shout and be glad for your reward will be great in Heaven\" (the Beatitudes).

God told me to believe for the things He has promised me; to CLAIM His promises. Sometimes, things can take YEARS to come to pass; look at Moses and Joseph! There is a perfect timing with God: \"There is a proper time and procedure for every matter though a man\'s misery weighs heavily upon him\" (Ecclesiastes) and \"God\'s Word will NOT return void, but will accomplish that which it was sent to do\" (Isaiah).

I began to put my faith into practise again by speaking positively to God and myself, saying things like \"I EXPECT that breakthrough\" (in a particular area), \"It WILL happen\", \"What God has promised WILL come to pass!\" I immediately felt a huge weight lift from me and my hope was alive again. I felt better mentally and even physically.

\"Faith is being SURE of what we hope for and CERTAIN of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for\" (Hebrews 11:1-2) and \"Without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God...\" (Hebrews 11:6). Also, \"Let not a double-minded person think that he will receive anything he asks for from the Lord\" (I can\'t remember where that is).

WE NEED TO BE SURE! OUR PROMISES FROM THE LORD ARE RECEIVED THROUGH SINGLE-MINDED FAITH AND HIS PERFECT TIMING!

AMEN
