I Will Not Let Go

Have you ever been desperate to see God move? Jacob was. He wrestled with God and said he flat out wouldn’t let go until God blessed him according to His promise. He was persistent. 

When it comes to believing God’s promises for your life, you have to be willing to persevere. Time will test your faith. Naysayers will test your resolve. Many factors will war against the promise and you will have times you want to quit. 

May I encourage you not to quit, not to give in to fear or allow time to be your enemy. Instead, turn in desperation to God and tell him, “I’m not letting go until you bless me. Until you fulfill your promise to your servant. I will stand, I will fast, I will pray and press in as long as it takes to see your blessings unfold.”

It is a great mercy to be brought to the point where you’re desperate enough to cry out day and night. There is also great beauty to be found in this place of wrestling with and waiting on God! 

So, dear one, press in and press on. Whatever you do, don’t let go. Don’t give up! He who promised is faithful!
