When you give your all but see little or no success, when you don't see breakthrough, when you're disappointed, when you're overlooked or things don't happen when and as you thought it should, DON'T GET DISCOURAGED. DON'T GIVE UP. You see in part, God sees the whole picture.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not depend on your own understanding." (Proverbs 3:5)
The enemy knows you're getting close to your destiny and wants to discourage you and get you to step back, but the Lord is calling you to step up and step out in faith. This is a new day and it calls for expansion and broadening of horizons. "Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide." (Isaiah 54:2) It's time to move ahead and occupy the land. If you're faced with giants, bad reports, difficulty or opposition, DON'T GET DISCOURAGED. PERSEVERE, and in DUE SEASON you will reap a HARVEST OF BLESSING...if you DO NOT GIVE UP.
"May we never tire of doing what is good and right before our Lord, because in His season we shall bring in a great harvest if we can just PERSIST." (Galatians 6:9)
PERSIST: continue in an opinion or course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.
