When You Feel Like Giving Up

My heart reaches out this morning to the down trodden emotionally. Yes, you can have all the money, dress well, look good on the surface that some others even envy you, but deep down in your heart, you are so crushed and you know. When you are with people, you try to pretend, but when you are alone, you cry, and weep, you do unimaginable things to keep yourself going.

 
You are the one I am writing to today. You cannot give up.
 
You see, you need to understand that the more glorious a future is, the more the devil deploys all his arsenals from hell. The more bright your future is, the more the intensity of the trials.
 
You have been abused, and the strings of abuse have turned you into an emotional wreck. You find yourself moving from one relationship to another in your search for affirmation, you are taken advantaged of in each relationship and they never last.
 
You couldn't count then experiences of jeru trap. You are always attracting those that end up taking advantage of your emotions. You feel dirty within. Sometimes, you stay under the shower, wishing the rushing water can wash of the dirt within.
 
You are simply tired, but you keep acting to keep face. The hope for the future is blighted and you are beginning to consider that it is not really worth it.
 
On the other end of the lane is another person, committed in church, always looking holy but you are deeply depressed within. They thought you are spiritual, but you know that you are far from that.
 
What do you do?
 
The songs in your ears continually seems to be a dirge, the future looks so bleak. You couldn't even see an inch into the future!
 
On yet another lane is one who is passionately committed to God but always in lack. How you envy some others that could cut corners and dip their hands in iniquity. You often feel disadvantaged with your faith!
 
And yet there is another who thinks there is a curse somewhere. No husband is showing up. Can’t seem to see a good wife. Yes, you are a believer, you speak in tongues, but you are beginning to consider the possibility of a curse somewhere!
 
I have one word for all this morning from the mouth of the Lord:
 
"Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee." (Isa 60:1, KJV)
 
When God is speaking directly, you listen!
 
First, God tells you what you should do. Arise!
 
Then God gives you two reasons why you should arise.
 
First, He says, your light has come and secondly the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
 
Now. let’s take a look at this in Amplified Version:
"ARISE [ from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life ]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! (Isa 60:1, AMP)
 
1. The first thing here is to Arise
It is a decision you need to make this morning. You need to say, “I will not give up! It is not over with me yet. It doesn't matter what the situation looks like in my academics, relationship, marriage and finances, I am going to arise.”
 
I may be jobless, but I will arise today!
I may be so single, but I will arise!
I may be so down, but I will arise!
 
But Pastor, this issue has been for long. It is almost becoming a monument! Well, it doesn't really matter. The instruction is to arise. There was a man who had an issue from birth and yet decided to arise!
 
"And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked: The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked." (Act 14:8-10, KJV)
 
His affliction began from the womb. But he leaped and walked!
 
This morning, the word of the Lord unto you is arise. The next question is, ”Arise from what?”
 
2. From the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you
You simply have to reject that negative experience. It is not God’s plan for you to be afflicted, plundered and abused daily. But you have a responsibility to make up your mind to arise from what is not part of your destiny. The devil is trying to impose it but you have to say, “No!”
 
Don't let circumstances keep you on the wrong lane of life. Refuse to be depressed just this time. Refuse to accept that negative trend as your fate. You are not cursed, and if you really were, you should be dead. The devil is not that lenient. Your mind is what needs to be worked on, because when you are a child of God, all curses are taken care of!
 
You have authority over weak and beggarly elements. There are no curses anywhere. The major problem is that lifestyle of sin. If you are constantly compromising, you lose the power to exert your authority, the devil capitalises on that, and then you feel you are powerless, when in effect, it is the compromise that opened the door.
 
In other words, what to deal with is your relationship with God and your decision to stay off sin. When you do that, darkness will never be able to comprehend that light.
 
3. Rise to a new life!
Yes, there is a new life in God beckoning unto you. All things can be made new. Your life can turn out for the better. God can turn your captivity around! Decide today to discontinue the old way of life.
 
Rise to a new life. Delete that man’s number, he is married. Stop seeing that girl, you are a married man. Stop packing your bags every weekend to travel down to the place you are not proud of.
 
You can change this morning. Rise to a new life. Make up your mind. Ask God for His Help right now. Make a commitment before God this morning. Decide not to slow yourself down again. It is a new day. It is new life. If you decide this morning, you will see supernatural strength to make a change. The anointing upon KHC is that of revival. You can be revived right now. That grace drips with oil upon you now…even as you read!
 
Revival from all that are not part of your destiny.
Revival from all that has kept your head bowed.
I see every tree that God has not planted in your life uprooted now!
If you can speak in tongues, this is a good time to do that.
This morning, God is lifting up your heard because He is your shield, and your glory!
 
No more confusion in your life!
 
CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I refuse to give up!
 
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, hold me by the right hand and lift me up
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
""Get out of bed, Jerusalem! Wake up. Put your face in the sunlight. GOD's bright glory has risen for you." (Isa 60:1, MSG)
 
ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Arise today!
