Quitting Is Not An Option

Quitting Is Not An Option 

By Wayne McDonald

1Thessalonians 2:18 Because it was our will to come to you. [I mean that] I, Paul, again and again [wanted to come], but satan hindered and impended us.

Are you trying to fulfill a dream or carry out a vision and it feels like there is resistance? Welcome to the club, the Apostle Paul was tying to carry out his vision and experienced much resistance. Paul said, satan keeps hindering us.

Now every bit of resistance you have is not from the Devil. Some times there is resistance because of a lack of wisdom. Other times you just know in your spirit that it is the enemy. You will be tested; the enemy wants to try to stop the purposes of God from coming to pass in your life. God has specific plans for you.

Most of the time I have found that the devil fights me the most where God wants to bless me the most. Never give up! Keep pursuing the dream or vision that the Lord have given you. I have seen a lot of the things God put in my heart come to pass. But there are some things I am still fighting for.

I feel the resistance of the enemy but I will never give up or quit until those things come to pass. You have got to become determine and focused. Pray over the dreams and visions that the Lord has given to you.

“Father I commit the dreams and visions of my heart to you. I ask you to strengthen me and fill me with wisdom. I  declare I have favor on my life and all that I do will prosper in Jesus name” Remember satan can't stop you, but he can hinder you. Be consistent and patient. Never give up!
