Do you realize that you can truly get better in spite of the set backs you might be facing right now?

"But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shine more and more unto the perfect day". Proverbs 4:18{KJV}

  The scripture says that the pathway of the righteous is as the shining light not a dim one. Not only does this light shine, it gets brighter more and more. In other words, it is progressive. It is from one level of glory to another.

In Genesis 27: 30 - 40 we are told that Esau lost the blessing. Before this, he had sold his birth right to his brother Jacob out of fatigue. Of course when it came to the time of blessing, Jacob got the blessing. Having lost all, his father told him that his life was not going to be an easy one. He was going to live by the sword and serve his younger brother. That looked like the end of the road for Esau.

"Genesis 27:40 NIV" puts it this way, ''...when you become restless.'' Child of God, it is this point of 'restlessness' that I want to seriously consider today because if you read the story to the end you would notice that Esau eventually bounced back. Even though Esau lost both the birth right and the blessing, that was not the end of his life because he still bounced back. I have always said this to you; never write off a man who is still under the word because he is capable of springing surprises.

You need to get fed up and angry in the spirit. You need to get fed up of the devil robbing you of what rightly belongs to you and when you do you will rise up in anger and throw off his yoke from your neck. I have come to challenge you today to get fed up with that ugly situation in your life. No matter the lies of the devil, God wants you free, He wants you to testify. He expects you to be fruitful in all your ways. 

You have what it takes.

There is so much you can achieve if you would just hold on tenaciously to God's promise.

''...And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces and laid him on the wood and said, fill four barrels with water and pour it on the burnt sacrifice and on the wood. And he said, do it a second time. And they did it a second time. And he said do it the third time. And they did it the third time. And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.'' (1 Kings 18:33-35)

The ancient prophet Elijah knew he had to settle once and for all who God of Israel was. He called for a contest and when the Prophets of Baal were done, he repaired the broken-down altar of God and asked that water be poured upon the sacrifice - in other words make it difficult for God to answer by fire.

Beloved, how do you pour water on a sacrifice and expect fire to consume it? That decision could only have come from a man who knew God could never fail. They kept pouring in scarce water until the whole altar was drenched with water and the trench he had dug was overflowing.

Naturally water retards fire, but God, wanting to show His power, answered by fire and the fire licked up the sacrifice, the water and even the stones. The result was a great revival in the land as can be found in verse 39 which says ''...And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The Lord, He is God; the Lord, He is God.'' That marked the end of Baal worship and the true worship of God was again restored in Israel.

Can you imagine what would have happened if Elijah had given up? His ministry would have become irrelevant. In Christianity, there is nothing like retreat; you don't go back. In the same vein, I come to encourage you never to give up. Often times, people fail just because they give up too quickly. Just a little more effort, a little more patience and they would have succeeded.

The writer of Hebrews puts it this way, ''...for we are made partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end.'' (Hebrews 3:14). There is so much you could achieve if you keep at it without faltering. Never give up because God would show up on your behalf.

 You will not be embarrassed.
