Your present condition does not dictate your future, your faith in God does.
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.

Confession


And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)

The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.

Quitters never win

"Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God, I will praise him again - my Savior and my God."( Psalms 42:11)

I can't , I just can't face another day.
Is that how you have been feeling lately?. The pressures of life have been overwhelming, you just can't go on anymore.

You can't understand what is happening to you, to your home to your marriage, to your ministry. Something is missing and try as you will you just can't find the key to make things work out.

You have spent hours trying to figure out where things went wrong.The romance is gone , the communication is gone, right now your relationship with God is plummeting, right now there are more questions than answers.

If you will pull back the facade you will find depression, or perhaps you even thought about suicide or maybe even attempted it, everything seems so blank and dismal.

You desperately cry out for God's help and He seems not to hear.
You struggle along making one mistake after another,we cry, you pray, you read the word, you help others and do good.
But you are left feeling empty and unfulfilled, doubt creeps in.


We all have times of despair accompanied by feelings of failure, at times we have all thought of quitting. We have all had thoughts of giving up.
The truth is life is tough for all of us, even the greatest preachers and men of the bible struggled at times. I want to encourage you and let you know  that some of the greatest people in the Bible have been there and felt like quitting

Moses the man who talked with God and parted the Red Sea and brought down the Ten Commandments got fed up with his problems and wanted to die.
"If this is how you intend to treat me, just go ahead and kill me. Do me a favor and spare me this misery!" (Numbers 11:15)

Job was a perfect man in God's sight, yet he also experienced a time when he wanted to give up after loosing his animals, his workers and his children, but he held on to God.

Then there is Jeremiah, he watched mothers eating their own children because of the starvation of war, he was thrown in prison when his country was defeated in war, when released from prison, he was hung by his armpits in a well full of mud.
Now that's tough, but yet he still had hope.

"I say to myself,"the Lord is my inheritance, therefore I will hope in him!"The Lord is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him. So it is good to wait quietly for the Lord to save. (Lamentations 3:24-26)

Everyone at some point in their lives felt like giving up or quitting.
May be the problems and pressures of daily life make you feel like giving up
Perhaps you are still waiting for answers to prayers.
Maybe you’re in need of healing or you need a financial miracle.

Your situation right now might seem hopeless but don't give up, let your faith in Him remain and remember He loves you. God is not in the business of condemnation, He never gives up on you, He loves you, hold on He will see you through.

 You are what the Word says you are. You can do what the Word says you can do. You can have what the Word says you can have. Begin to believe that. Begin to say it out loud in faith

Repentance is a God given opportunity to enter into the blessings of the Lord and escape from the oppression of the enemy.
