How many times do we have to hear it?
Whats the number of times that we have to hear something to make it significant? More than a coincidence?
At least once per day, last weekend into Monday: God has either used someone or brought to my mind the same thing. “Do not be discouraged, do not give up.”
Saturday my pastor shared, Hebrews 12:3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Sunday Galatians 6:2-5, 9-10 came to mind while praying :
2 Chr 15:7 “But you, be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward in your work.”
There’s got to be some kind of significance in this right?
We always say third times a charm or three strikes your out…but not just three times, four in 72 hours.
I needed to hear this on Monday, as I had a near migraine as I was heading to bible study with the youth in NW DC. My flesh cried out to turn around, while my spirit said NO, God has called me to go, headache or not. I went, and my headache decreased to barely noticeable.
I know, My near migraine pales in comparison to the brokenness and struggles of those around me. There may be some of you out there tonight that needed to hear this. Do not give up! God is working on your behalf, just keep going. Keep your eyes on Him!
As we journey through life, many times things get pretty dark and bleak before we see the light of day, keep pressing, keep going! God desires to restore our broken and fragile lives, bringing healing, joy and peace again.
God open my eyes to the brokenness around me, so that your healing presence and your light may brighten the dark places and heal the brokenness.
