TGIF…Today God Is First And Quitting Is Not An Option

Friday Scripture:

Romans 12:12 (ESV) Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

Friday Inspiration:

I want to encourage you and remind you that quitting is not an option. Throwing in the towel is not an option. God has not brought you this far to forsake you. He never said that this journey would be peaches and cream. But as I reflect on the road to Calvary, it wasn’t easy for our Lord and Savior either. Sometimes we have to go through to get to. Please remember if God brings you to it, then he will walk with you hand in hand to the other side to VICTORY. We just have to focus on not getting ahead of God’s plan for our lives. And in His time, he will show up and show out on our behalf. You are a survivor! You are stronger than you think you are. There have been times in my own life, when I was in a dark place, and I was sick and tired of being tired. And I was simply just going through the motions, existing and not thriving. But God loves us all of his children and wants so much more for us! God truly wants each one of his us to flourish and be the best that they can be. Yet I understand also that we have been anointed for trouble. Meaning that God has put everything inside of us to that we need to win the battle. When we are walking in full surrender with the Lord where He has full control of our entire life, then God will anoint us right in the middle of each of our storms. And when God anoints us in the heat of these battles, remember we also have the power of the Holy Spirit himself flowing and fighting with us. If God does not remove the thorn in your flesh, then he will condition and strengthen you to go through and come out on the other side. Remember we are more than conquerors. But regardless of the test and trial we experience we must take a stand as believers; because Satan’s plan is clear, he desires to kill, steal, and destroy us by any means necessary. And if he can’t get you, then he’s coming after your family and everything you love. Stay on you’re a-game and stay alert; the evil is always planned and ready. We must be determined to PPP… Push, Press, and Praise our way through until we see the light at the end of the tunnel. Amen!

Friday Prayer:

Hallelujah, Lord you are so worthy to be praised. Father, we come as humbly as we know how to come, to bow down before you and bask in your glory! Truly you are worthy to be praised. Thank you for another day that wasn’t promised to us. Thank you for your unconditional love. Thank you that you’re not like man, you look past our faults and see our needs. We thank you for last night laying down and this morning early rising. Thank you for keeping our family and friends safe from dangers seen and unseen. Great is thy faithfulness! Lord please forgive us for our short comings, and for our sins and iniquities. Search us oh Lord and if you find anything that is not like you, please take it away. Father we confess that there have been times when we wanted to give up. But we decree and declare that we can do all things with you who strengthens us. Thank for the faith to believe that what’s impossible with man is possible with you. Sometimes the feeling of anxiety and uncertainty has clouded our vision, but because you have given us a spirit not of fear but of power, love and self-control we will receive our victory. You have instructed us in your word to be strong, and wait on you. You also encouraged us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we don’t give up. When the power of the Holy Spirit quenches our soul, strengthen us to fight harder.  Thank you that we can come to you when are heavy laden and cast all of our cares unto you. Thank you for being our strong tower and refuge from the storms. We declare and decree that no weapon formed against can, shall, or will prosper! Greater is he that is within us than he that is of this world. Thank you that when we are weak, your power is made strong. Thank you because we believe by faith that better days is coming! Our breakthrough is coming! Our deliverance is on the way! For it’s in your darling son Jesus name we pray, give thanks, and say Amen!
