KEY SCRIPTURE: Mark 6:52 KJV” For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened”.
MEN get depressed and even given up when they lose touch with the power of God and the reality of His love. GOD has revealed Himself in His creation, yet some men in the times of challenges start questioning where is God, and whether He is concerned about them at all. Rom 1:20 KJV” For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse”: The children of Israel who were delivered from Egypt kept a cycle of murmuring and complaining, in spite of the mighty miracles God did in their midst. They felt discouraged to the point of requesting to go back to Egypt. (Num 14:2). They never considered any of the great signs and wonders God did through Moses, yet they complained.
Many of us might have encountered God’s power at a point in our lives. We may know someone who might have had an encounter with God of some kind. We have an evidence of God’s awesomeness in the creation all around us. Anyone who would be discouraged does so by refusing to consider any of the mighty revelations of God’s power. The Bible says Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. Heb 13:8. He said this to buttress the point that those who preached God’s word to us, and experienced, God’s power, are an example to us. He says we must follow their example. If God did it for them, He will do same for us. God has Never failed any man and He can’t fail you, so hold on to Him.
Do not turn a deaf ear to these examples and experiences. When David encountered Goliath, it was the testimonies he had earlier that ENCOURAGED him to face Goliath and eventually conquer him. Let every past victory, testimony or whatever good you have known about God challenge you to move forward. Do not give up under any difficulty of any kind.
God’s word is full of examples of men and women who trusted in Him and so He came through for them. Let these example encourage you to remain faithful to God and His word. Keep moving forward till things work out well. The man who gives up has failed, but the one who is in the thick of affairs, sweating but will not give up, is a success yet to be revealed by time
Thank you, heavenly Father, for your great care and protection of my life. Your love for me abides the same. Your power rules over the universe. You are forever with me and that makes me to overcome.
Hebrews 13:5. Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]
Joshua 1:5 KJV” There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee”.
