Who Knows What Can Change In The Next 24 Hours?

I believe most of us have all felt like quitting at one point or another at a particular point in life, but I have to be honest with you, the desire to quit is as much a part of growth as success. For those who refuse to quit despite of challenges, oppositions and setbacks a greater reward awaits for you.

Nothing worth having is easy to obtain and everything that has value also has a cost.

This is why some people actually reach their God-given goals: though most acknowledge that hard work is needed. We know good things take years, decades even, but when the years begin to pass by, many are still caught off guard. Make no mistake: the bigger the vision, the longer it will take and the tougher times will be. God will give no weighty thing to the one who cannot stand under it’s pressure.

It is the process that makes you a person who can handle what God wants to give you. I assure you: there are no shortcuts.

Apostle Paul said is very well in 1 Corinthians 9:24 “Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win!” . Trials and testings can cause us to grow weary while Setbacks, disappointments and long-term delay can add to the demise of our resolve but this is the good news in our weak and frail moments, we can find the strength in the Lord Jesus to continue. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
I believe you have seen the vision, you are holding onto the dream and your constant prayer is to become someone who pleases God but sometimes life doesn’t align with our ambitions and hopes. People, discouragement and demonic powers can speak to your heart, “Just quit and try something else.” I have even heard close associates say, “If it is God, it will flow easily” but at times that’s not the case. When you do something for God, when you pursue the dream that He placed in your heart, OPPOSITIONS WILL COME, and they will come violently. But in difficult times, I am reminded of this Scripture: “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” – Galatians 6:9.

Hold this thought captive in your mind: “I will not quit.”

In your life, work, relationships and assignment, you may have had moments where you wanted to quit. It may feel as though you are trapped and not making it. It’s tempting to look forward to an ideal situation, it’s easy to put your happiness on hold until things settle down or fall into place but the key to not quitting and walking in joy is two-fold. Enjoy the journey and keep the vision.
Enjoy where you are now but don’t lose sight of the future. Be happy in the moment and grateful for what you have.1 Timothy 6:6 (AMP) But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment (that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God).
And if you can just hold on a little longer, I believe breakthrough is just around the corner. Who knows what can change in the next 24 hours? You just may be standing on the brink of your breakthrough. Here are at least 10 reasons that you shouldn’t quit.
  1. Don’t quit, because what you are doing now may be positively affecting a life, and you may not even be aware of it.
  2. Don’t quit, because you may be just days away from a tremendous breakthrough.
  3. Don’t quit, because everything you do in love will count for all of eternity.
  4. Don’t quit, because faithfulness pleases God.
  5. Don’t quit, because quitting would undo all that you have worked for up to this point.
  6. Don’t quit, because quitters are more filled with regret than those who persevere.
  7. Don’t quit, because the world is still in need of the gospel, and you are a vital part of the church.
  8. Don’t quit, because future generations of your family will reap from your obedience.
  9. Don’t quit, because truth is worth the fight.
  10. Don’t quit, because life is too short to re-take divine tests.
If God is with you, who or what can be against you? You are a child of God. The favor on your life is uncommon, and the vision God has placed before your eyes is unstoppable. God has never failed you and it is His desire to continually expand you further than you ever thought you would go as you remain surrendered to Him.
