DAY 11 OF 365: WALKING THROUGH THE WORD DEVOTIONAL

Quitting some things maybe your best chance at having success sometimes…

Title: THE GOOD THING ABOUT QUITTING

And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

1 Cor. 6:11

DO I KNOW YOU? DO I FEEL YOU?

The pains. Keeping the faith up. Coping/overcoming the pains. Dealing with the cause-in hatred or in love.

[NLT] Hebrews 2:18 Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.

I may not know everything or feel everything, or have I felt everything, that you are going through, or have been through.

But here is what I know:
I know what it means to lose a parent at an early age.
I know what it means to be raised by a widowed mum that wasn’t always there.
I know what it means to live apart from your immediate family and most loved ones.
I know what it means to hunger and thirst.
I know what it means to lack.
I know what it means to leave school and be delayed cause of fees.
I know what it means to lose people you love most to wicked forces.
I know what it means to lose a loved one because of the bad company they kept.
I know what it means to lose something or someone you’ve been protecting and guiding for a long time.
I know and I feel…

But I also know what it means to be loved by those you have no ties with.
I know what it means to have everything you need whenever you really needed it.
I know what it means to be in Christ Jesus in God and to have the company of the Spirit always. These three in one has been the reason I am who I am today.
I love those who have hurt me and I pray one day that they come to find this light as I have now.
I have love for those who took my loved ones away from me.
I don’t intend to take vengeance. I forgive them like God forgave me.
I have learnt to trust God with my all and He has never disappointed me. Even when I thought that He actually did, it was working out for something much more glorious for me.

Like I said earlier, I may not know everything.
But I know this for sure That God gives comfort to His own.
He knows how to deliver those who trust Him.
He is never late for those who are faithful.
And He is always available to those who diligently seek Him.

I may not feel what you’re feeling or have felt, but I know someone who does.
He is touched by the feelings of our infirmities.
He promise to never leave nor forsake.
He promise to forgive the repentant.
He promise to heal
He promise to mend
He promise to deliver
He promises and He performs
He doesn’t know failure; for there is no failure with Him.
Hang on in there. It wont take too long and your change will come. And when it does, it will be like a dream because it will beat your highest expectation.

I don’t know it all…
But I want you to know this
YOU’RE NEVER ALONE.
YOU’RE NOT THE FIRST.
Your destiny lies ahead.
Keep your head up.
Do not let your background to put your back on the ground.
Do not let where you are now to hinder you from getting to where God has designed for you to be.
Stay strong and you’ll come out with wings.
Hold the light and cling on Him.
You’re meant for great things….
Nomatter what you’re going through now, if you stay and keep the faith as you move on, you will reach

Embrace the comfort only God can give.
Walk in the light only found in Him.
Put your treasure which is safe in Him.
Never give up or give in.
Never allow the circumstances you find yourself in to change you into the monster you hate the most.
Allow the faith and testimony of the saints and those who once walked this path to encourage and keep you going.

There is light at the end of the tunnel. Don’t look down or back yet.
Keep going, praying, trusting, and believing this:

You’re loved.

James
