Are you able to function in life with limited good news? Would you be able to still do what is required of you without seeing much fruit of your labor?
People tell you NOT to quit, don't they? They remind you to walk by faith, right?
However, would they be able to consistently do what God tells them WITHOUT EVER SEEING many EVIDENCE OF ANY PROSPERITY?
Some of us are called to that type of ministry for years.
Truthfully, my life is like that in so many areas. No matter how much good I do, I still go through what seems like endless "hell." Nevertheless, I REFUSE TO QUIT.
I have what seems like more tears than laughter, but I still will not give up on God. He sees me. He sees the people who could have offered assistance but chose not to. help. He sees the many times I have to hear, "NO!"
He sees my tears. He sees my faith and works. He sees me when I am completely disappointed. He sees me, yet He allows me to be hurt and disappointed for a reason. No, I am not always sinning (*smile). I actually get it right a lot of times, but I still live in a world of disappointment.
No one can talk me out of it. No one can really speak to it because that is my life. I will smile on the outside while I am having a serious conversation with God in my heart. "God, why? Help me, etc., etc., etc." Then I give Him praise and I keep on going, while still asking, "God why? Help me, etc., etc., etc." Yet, I still refuse to QUIT.
Like Job, I believe everything will work out for my good; therefore, I persevere.
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint" (Isaiah 40:31, KJV).
