BE CONSISTENT! DON'T LOSE FOCUS! DON'T QUIT!


I recently received the following message from a gentleman that I’m friends with on LinkedIn, as I read it I was so blessed I e-mailed Pastor Isiaka who is the  NATIONAL CORDINATOR at The Redeemed Christian Church of God in Leicester, United Kingdom asked permission to post it here on our blog site. I pray you are blessed like I was:

 BE CONSISTENT! DON'T LOSE FOCUS! DON'T QUIT!
 The Quitter Will Not Win! The Winner Will Not Quit!

  "And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and Wash in Jordan seven times,
 and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean"! (2 Kings 5 vs 10).

 When Naaman went to Elisha for healing!
 He was instructed to go and wash in Jordan seven times!
 He was instructed to do the same thing seven times!
 God's instruction to Naaman was devoid of variety!
 It was monotonous and totally uninteresting!
 God's Pathway to Naaman's miracle involved doing one thing over and over again!
 It would have seemed boring to Naaman and to anyone who watched him dip himself in Jordan seven times!

  Notice that the same thing that looked monotonous eventually brought Naaman's miracle!
 The same Procedure that looked uninteresting eventually led to Naaman's healing!
 The same thing that would have seemed unproductive for six consecutive times!
 Eventually yielded result the seventh time! Never give up!
 Should Naaman had given up at the sixth time!
 He would have gone back a leper!
 Failure at the edge of success will never be your portion!

  Beloved, Isn't it true that sometimes, the things that will lead to our desired results often seem monotonous?

 It often seems monotonous to pray repeatedly!
 It often seems monotonous to study God's Word repeatedly!
 It often seems monotonous to live a righteous life everyday!
 It often seems monotonous to believe God by faith everyday!
 It often seems monotonous to go out for evangelism! Choir practice! Bible Study! Prayer Meetings every-week!

 
 Today, God says your efforts may seem monotonous!
 But they will bring results if you don't quit!
 You may have done the right thing repeatedly, yet without results!
 God says, don't quit, something great is coming your way!
 You may have made efforts to improve your career, and it seems the results are not forthcoming!
 You may have made efforts to improve your ministry, and it seems the results are not forthcoming!
 You may have made efforts to improve your business, and it seems the results are not forthcoming!
You may have made efforts to improve your family and it seems the results are not forthcoming!
 Don't lose faith! BE CONSISTENT! Don't lose FOCUS!

  Beloved, once you don't quit, be sure there is a massive harvest just by the door!

 Dearest of the Lord, DON'T QUIT NOW!

 You have come too far from where you started from!
 The Good news is already by the corner! Don't Quit1
 The Quitter will not Win! The Winner will not Quit!

  Pray with me,"Lord, I receive your Word, I won't quit. Grant me more Grace for Consistency"!

  HAVE A REWARDING MID-WEEK!

 Let Somebody Shout Hallelujah!

  THE FATHER'S BLESSING:"I Pray for you today, Failure at the edge of success will not be your portion! You will never quit your post prematurely before you reach your goal! You are on the winning side, you will not lose your trophy! All your efforts shall yield your desired result! You shall be celebrated! You shall be honoured both on earth and in heaven! Your situation is not your destination! No matter how hard it looks God will never give up on you! God is in the business of restoring hopes, your hopes will not be dashed! Everyone of your broken dreams shall God restore! He will restore every wounded spirit and hopeless live around you! He will restore what you have lost! God's favour is UPON YOU! KEEP MOVING FORWARD! DON'T QUIT! No matter how dark your life looks, with Jesus your future is bright! Our God is a God of restoration. There is nothing beyond His power of restoration. God can forgive and God can take a broken vessel: remake and refashion all over again! Today, Open your heart for God's healing! Have the courage to TRUST IN GOD! I decree upon your life that every disappointment shall turn into an appointment with divine appointment and a blessing to you! Let all your stolen blessings be restored to you in a thousand fold! From now on your blessings will become irreversible in Jesus name! (Amen)!

 Emmanuel=GOD With Us!

Suicide & The Pulpit

Reports have emerged that Pastor Bill Lenz who was founder and longtime senior pastor of Christ the Rock Community Church in Harrison, WI died Monday by committing Suicide.   Bill was a strong advocate within the Christian community for Suicide Prevention, and along with his brother created Life Promotions, that ministers and teaches folks about Suicide Prevention and how to recover from those thoughts. Reports that I have read have stated that Pastor Lenz reported suffering with Anxiety,   Panic Attacks, and Depression for about three months, and his staff and board responded by providing support and encouragement including giving him time to seek counseling and treatment.   However, the depression became overwhelming and on Monday, he chose to take his own life.    My prayers are with his family, friends, staff, and members of his church.   Having provided Suicide Prevention training to staff members at churches and other organizations I am not sure what could have been done dif

Time for the Next Great Awakening …

Throughout the late 1800’s there was political nightmare happening in America. This nightmare eventually erupted into a Civil War. However, what is also interesting it also ushered in some of the Greatest Revivals in history. As I sit today reading the news, listening to people talk, and realize we are once again in the midst of a political nightmare. I listen to the President talk and yes even tweet (personally I wish all their tweet accounts were shut down), I hear presidential candidates, Senators, Congressmen and Congresswomen, political advisors, and sadly, Pastors commenting back and forth. Realize, just as with the events of the mid-1800’s the only true survival for America is a great move of God, Yes a real National Revival, from the White House to the Farm House, from the Department of Education to the classroom, from the Pentagon to the local military base. Yes, even from the National Cathedral to the local church. It is time once again for America to seek a real soluti

God help me stand in your place today!

I was reading Proverbs 25: 6-7 today … what a powerful passage of scripture. When you read those words in Christian Standard Bible they jump off the page: "Don’t brag about yourself before the king, and don’t stand in the place of the great; 7 for it is better for him to say to you, "Come up here!   " than to demote you in plain view of a noble." I’m fearful that too many preachers are promoting themselves above the place that God has called them to be. I was taught humility as a young preacher and even today I still hold on to these truths. I always allow the minister where I’m preaching or teaching to give my title that will be used such as Reverend, Doctor, Pastor, Bishop or Minister. I always sit on the front row or with my wife if she is there until the pastor asks me to come to the platform. I always respect the position of authority over me (Pastor/Bishop). I’m a guest at his church and acknowledge their position, and never assume that I have s
