Good afternoon! Happy Tuesday.
TFTD: Determined to Finish
Psalm 118:6 New King James Version (NKJV)
6 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
Take a trip with me to the day you declared you would start something new. God gave you the vision for a business, to go back to school, to relocate, to start a church, to start a ministry, to start a family, etc. and you were all excited and ready to go and then BAM before you could officially get into a groove life happens. Distractions come from the east and the west, road blocks appear to look like mountains, discouragement is plastered on billboards all over town, fear creeps into your mind and holds you captive and these are just a few things that have happened along the way. That energy and excitement you started with on day one is slowly seeping out like the air in a tire with a small puncture. You can’t seem to find the pep in your step and giving up seems like the easiest thing to do.
BUT Wait!!! Don’t give up! Don’t abort the vision! It’s time to remain determined to finish! Did you know that the journey in between the start and the finish was strategically designed to cause you to draw closer to Christ? Did you realize that everything you deal with will be used to equip you for the call that is on your life? I am here to encourage someone today, don’t allow fear, distractions, obstacles or even naysayers to keep you from walking in your calling. As a child of God, you are on the right team! The Lord is on your side and with Him on your side you do not have anything to fear. Man can’t do anything to you. Although they may try to kill the dream and push you towards wanting to quit, their attacks are futile.
How awesome is our God!?! Demons tremble at the mention of His name and because He is on your side they will tremble when you step on the scene. Walk in the confidence that you serve a God who is more powerful than any trick from the enemy. I want you to go back to that vision and decide today that you are DETERMINED TO FINISH!!!
God bless you. Now get to work and be encouraged!
