During the past weekend I have been trying to update this blog! I am trying to change the theme and I have to upload a file on-line and I am messing in an area that I have very little knowledge of. I have read a lot about programming, file transfer protocol and I am – more lost now than when I started, but I will not give up, because I want to make this site better, so that it might be more of a blessing to more people!
While working on and through this challenge, I thought about how many times, so many of us give up and fail to follow through, when things get difficult! Life is not easy and anything in life that is really worth anything is usually hard, but it is always worth the effort, if we will just follow through, stick with it and stay faithful!
Think for a moment about the calling that God has placed upon each of our lives! Luke 4:18 puts it this way: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
You don’t have to do this thing called life by yourself! God is with you! His Spirit is on you and in you! You have His anointing and power flowing to and through your life so that you might preach the good news that there is hope and a future. Our job is to proclaim that freedom is available for every man, woman, boy and girl – through a relationship with our amazing God, Who has an incredible plan for each of our lives. Open your eyes and encourage others to open their eyes and see all that God has done, is doing and is going to do!
Don’t give up and don’t give in! God has freedom and He wants this freedom to release you – so that you might tell everyone about the Lord’s favor and blessings!
