I was scrolling on my Facebook wall when I stumbled on this message, “I did not bring you this far to fail you now. It may be rocky, but I still have a way for you.” I hurriedly grabbed my phone and send the same message to my guy.
“Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:” ~ Galatians 1:4 KJV
It is a given fact that sometimes in life we want to give up. It is then when life makes no sense we want to throw in the towel and call it quits (from our job, school, church, business, etc).
That’s because the burdens, trials, and afflictions of life can become so overwhelming and the easiest thing or the thing that requires the least effort that one can humanly think about in the middle of such great test of faith, is to give up.
But in spite of everything, you cannot give up now. Let this serve as good news that God did not bring you to this point to leave you. You’ve come a long way on this journey and you’ve made it thus far, not because of the absence of danger, but by faith and God’s presence with you.
According to the perfect will of God and the one who gave Himself upon the cross for our sins, God will deliver us from this present evil world.
What you’ve been going through are admittedly some strange times. There is a tremendous shaking going on every level and many are falling away through apostasy while mothers are weeping for their dying babies.
However, God has begun a good work in you and most definitely, He will finish the work that He started. The evidence of this can be found in Philippians 1:6 which emphatically states:
Being confident of this, that he who has begun a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (NIV)
God sees your tears, you need faith to envision the new thing that He is about to do in your life and the lives of others around the world. God is not satisfied with the status quo and He is heart-broken about what is happening with you and in the world today.
He sees the need for improvement and the need to make your life happier, more joyful and in a way that is pleasing for His purpose and glory unto His name. When will your change come?
He will bring about the change and make everything right when the time is right for Him. Meanwhile, remember the good news that God did not bring you this far to leave you.
