When you get discouraged, feel like giving up, especially when you are working so hard, but nothing is working; keep working your process.
Are you believing God for something that seems to be taking a long time? In the natural, you may have every reason to give up on what God has placed in your heart. At times, you may be tempted to get discouraged, but remember, God knows exactly where you are. He knows the desires He’s placed within you. He knows even the hidden dreams — what the Bible calls the secret petitions of your heart. Those are the things that you haven’t told anyone about. Maybe you thought they would never work out, or you’ve buried them because they didn’t happen on your timetable. But God still has a way to bring them to pass. Be encouraged today because God is working behind the scenes on your behalf. Don’t settle for mediocrity because God knows what’s in you, and His plan is to finish the work He began in you. Does this describe you today?
