Do Not Give Up

There are times and seasons in which we need to let go, but not give up.
There is a need to hang on to God's word and God's timing.

There have been times, when I started to give up on a situation or a person.
Yet, the Lord would impress me to give the situation or the person a bit more time.
Time to grow, time to be watered, time for the light of God to shine forth in our hearts.
In the natural our faith is matured through a growth process.
As with all things this takes time.

If the Lord plants a seed in your heart to believe for something beyond your natural mind, you need to let it mature.
Maturity happens as a thing, person, or situation is left in the ample, sovereign hands of God.
If you try to make something happen before its time, results can be less than expected.

It is hard to wait. And wait. And wait.
But wait.
The Lord of the harvest knows when the seed is matured and ready to be harvested.
God knows the desires of our hearts and the good plan that He has for each of us.

Prayerfully consider your decisions.
Is it harvest time?
Or is it a Sabbath rest for you and your fields?

John 8:12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

2 Corinthians 4:4
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
