Now is NOT the time to give up#
"Now is not the time to give up.", says the Lord.
"Now is the time to press in, press in, and press in some more. Too many have thrown up their hands in despair.
The Lord asks us now:
"Does My Word not say in Matthew 11:12 "From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force."
I am calling My intercessors, My prayer warriors, to war with Me against the powers and principalities of the world. It has never been more true that your battle is not against flesh and blood but against the powers and principalities of the world."
"Time is so short and the battle so fierce, but now is not the moment to give up. Rather it is the time to renew your strength and redouble your efforts, and to declare My Kingdom today!"# (Supplied by Chris Bennett, with SoulSupply edits)
... with this in mind be alert, and keep on praying for all the saints. (Ephesians 6:18b)
When temptation abounds, prayer must increase.
When opposition abounds, prayer must increase.
When riots and revolts abound, prayer must increase.
When wickedness abounds, prayer must increase.
When weakness abounds, prayer must increase.
When the battle is fierce, prayer must increase.
Don't forget with our good Lord on your side, He and you are a majority.
It is always too early to give up.
It is only those who stand strong who are saved.
It is not how you start the race, but how you finish that matters.
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead, I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:12-14)
