You thought I quit BUT I'm Back!
Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones.
Many of us have found ourselves in situations or circumstances that made us want to quit. We drafted up our resignation letter and even submitted it. We were tired of being attacked, persecuted, disappointed, used, misused and abused.
We had dealt with discouragement, you know that spectrum between expectation and reality that has brought about much conflict. Many of us have suffered my pain and disappointment because our expectations of something or someone was one thing and the reality was another.
If this conflict is not properly dealt with it breeds discouragement and if discouragement is not dealt with it can bring forth defeat. It doesn't matter who you are we all will or have found ourselves facing some level discouragement.
Jeremiah said I wasn't popular, I wasn’t liked. You must understand that when God calls and assigns you, you won't always be liked. Some of us have found ourselves in this same place. We were just minding our business, doing our thing everything was okay but as soon as we accepted Gods call for our lives, all of a sudden all hell breaks lose. Then, it's bad enough I'm struggling with my assignment and fighting to stay in the race but I got hooked up with the wrong people. Those that suppose to have my back were smiling in my face but had set out to destroy my name and defame my character. You know what I'm come to learn is that I would rather have vocal enemy is better than a silent fake friend
Jeremiah said I was done, I'm over it, I'm sick and tired of this crazy people, I'm tired of the foolishness, I writing my resignation letter today, I'm not saying anything else, I'm not preaching anymore, God I'm not even mentioning your name anymore.
You’re frustrated, disappointed, upset, depressed…. You’re Over It!
“But His WORD was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones”( Jer 20:9)
Even when you wanted to let Him go, His Word wouldn't turn you lose. Can I tell you something.......You can never terminate what God initiates!!!!!
We came to serve notice to the devil, you thought I quit, you thought it was over but little did you know more than just a survivor, You are a conqueror! What you thought was gonna take you out of here, A BUT GOD gave you your second wind!
There is something powerful about the word BUT it has the power to change everything that came before it. No matter what you faced, no matter what you’re up against, no matter what they throw at you ..... You’re winning against the odds..... Keep a BUT in your back pocket!
