WRONG TIME TO QUIT!

WRONG TIME TO QUIT!

You are a work in progress in God’s hands. He is not done with you yet. You are on your way to your destiny and by the grace of God, you shall not terminate the trip prematurely. Thank God for where you are and what you have achieved. But thank God much more for where He is taking you to. You will fulfil His divine purpose for your life in Jesus Name. When we came to the Redemption camp and built the first auditorium, virtually everyone concluded that it was the biggest in Africa and that we should build a wall around it. However, by the grace of God, I knew that was not God’s limit for me. We have since expanded it four times and thereafter built the second auditorium. When the second auditorium was built, it was seen as being too big, but today, it has become too small to accommodate us during some big programmes. Has the devil been telling you to stay where you are, that you have gone far enough and cannot go higher? Is he telling you to stop struggling, rest, retire and leave the rest to fate? Don’t listen to him! Beyond your present place of turmoil, there is a rest; beyond your place of comfort and rest, there is a better place!

The devil has succeeded in making many people lazy so as to snatch their destiny. When you ask people to pray for one hour, some will say: ‘Pray for a whole hour? What are we asking for?’ The most tragic thing for a man is to quit while at the threshold of victory. In today’s reading, when Elisha was about to die, he gave the king an opportunity of a life time to ask and defeat his enemies. He gave him a bow and some arrows to shoot. He fired three and stopped. When the man of God told him the implication of having partial victory, he should have apologized and resumes shooting until he was stopped, but he did not go further. Have you made an effort on an issue that was inadequate and you gave up before it could yield fruit? Then you are not different from the king. If your effort is insufficient, then put in more effort. No matter how young you are, you are getting older daily. There was a time believers used to hold onto God in prayer until the answer came, but now, we want instant answers as if God is our houseboy. He is not.


Memorise:
But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
Hebrews 10:39
Read:
2 Kings 13:14-18

Bible in one year:
2 Chronicles 14-16

Prayer point:
In the name of Jesus, I resist every force or power compelling me to quit the good thing the Lord has placed before me. I receive grace to see its great end.

BAD SOIL

For your request to be granted, you have to apply relevant keys. Many people desire financial breakthrough but are not prepared to apply the right key; unsurprisingly the door just won’t open. 2 Corinthians 9:6 says you must sow bountifully and if you don’t sow, do not expect a harvest. Do you know some...More

ACCEPTED TIME 2

God is never too early and He is never too late. His timetable is set on purpose; the purpose is not only for your sake but also for His. In all things, His name shall be glorified. No doubt, He would have been glorified healing Lazarus of his sickness, but this can’t compare to raising him from the dead after...More
