Don't Give Up

The enemy is banking on you giving up. He would like nothing more than for you to forfeit the very things which God has handcrafted just for you.
He will send you distractions, plague upon your fears,  and cause doubt in the areas of your life you were once so  sure about.

He is the father of lies and a master illusionist (John 8:44). He will present people/opportunities to you which seem 'good enough' but do not represent God's best for you. He will manipulate you into thinking that God would never be interested in using you. After all, you're not skilled enough, not intelligent enough, not popular enough and not connected enough. But what that silly devil fails to realize is that God has ALWAYS done much with little.
Our inadequacies and weaknesses provide a platform, a stage, and arena if you will,  for God's strength to be displayed. His strength is made perfect in our weakness (II Corinthians 12:9). The enemy is a thief and he is on assignment to steal from us, kill us, and destroy us. But Jesus says that he comes so that we might have life, and have it abundantly! (John 10:10).
When the enemy tries to convince us of anything which is not life giving we must immediately resist him and he will flee from us.
I choose to believe what God says about me; not the lies and accusations of a toothless, defeated foe! God says that he knew me before I was even formed in my mother's belly (Jeremiah 1:5). He chose me and had a plan for my life. It is vitally important that we not lose sight of who God says we are. His voice is the one that matters. Continue to meditate on God's word. Seek him. Pray. Do not give audience to the enemy. And remember whenever God speaks a word, IT IS DONE! Nothing can change what God has already set in order. Don't give up. If God has said it, it's as good as done!
Stay Connected,
For all of God's promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding "Yes!" And through Christ, our "Amen" (which means "Yes") ascends to God for his glory. 
~ II Corinthians 1:20 ~
