DON’T QUIT:

Genesis 26:16”King Abimelech said to Isaac, "Go away from us, for you are too powerful for us."

When someone says that to us, with ‘mountain-size ego’ we would just give up on our project. Isn’t it?  One of my workers, when I questioned her about something, (not rebuked but just questioned)  said, “I’ll quit’, most crazy and irresponsible way to respond to pressure. 

But our friend Isaac refused to quit. Isaac moved to a different location and dug again what the Philistines closed, they found there a well of flowing water. Wow, praise God! When you obey God, persevere and keep working at the project entrusted to you by God, there would be an overflow of blessings.  However, the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with the herdsmen of Isaac, saying, "The water is ours!" So he named the well Esek, because they contended with him. Did not quit though, DUG AGAIN, when they quarreled called that place Sitnah.  DUG AGAIN, they did not quarrel over it; so he named it Rehoboth, for he said, "At last the LORD has made room for us, and we will be fruitful in the land." Glory to Jesus!

The Bible says: Isaiah 65:13 Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “My servants will eat, but you will go hungry; my servants will drink, but you will go thirsty; my servants will rejoice, but you will be put to shame.”

Failure should help us be fruitful , wonderful, aim to be successful and not be hateful! It should help us to flex our muscles and come back again, instead of curling yourself inside your own shell like the snail.  When we do that, we would remain slimy and wormy like the snail and never get strong.  Are you listening to me?  Get up and move on! Don’t quit! Don’t stop that Bible study just because someone mocked at you, continue doing it with more passion and punch the enemy’s nose. If someone comments on your scale and voice while singing, don’t give up, practice more, do hard work and bounce back friend, don’t quit. When the husband looked at the wife and told her, ’I love somebody else,’ the shattered wife came to me for prayers.  For many months I taught her to fight back the devil on her knees, instead of cursing the woman who grabbed her husband.  Friend, charge at the enemy instead of filing for divorce. Don’t act like a Maoist terrorist and think of revenge, instead forgive and move on! This wife started to fast, pray, attend fasting prayers and guess what happened? The husband came back to her! Give God a shout of praise!
