Keep Going On! by Pastor Melissa Scott

I am not suggesting you earn access to God. I am worth no more to God because I have made the journey than I was worth when I started.

I stand, at the end of the journey, on the sprinkled blood, just as I stood when I accepted the sacrifice at the beginning. But if I truly love God and want to please Him, He has given me a road map. I don’t want to camp at any point. I don’t want to feel I am so clean I don’t have to wash, that my life is so bright I don’t have to have new oil, that I have given enough I don’t have to replenish, or that the incense is going up
until I don’t have to kindle it anymore.

Do it all and keep “going on!”

God Measures Out Your Strength by Pastor Melissa Scott

Whatever your darkness is, will you put your trust in the Lord? You say that is not my darkness. We live in a day when economic collapse is on every side. We live in a day of high-pressured work. We are forever wondering how we will make it from one day to the next. An economic darkness is pressuring people on every side. I still insist on demystifying the things of God, that God provided for every darkness.

“Let him trust in the name of the LORD”: Jehovah-jireh, the Lord will provide. God has never promised me riches, but God’s Word says that the Lord is the Lord who will provide. A lot of years I thought I wouldn’t make it, but here I am. The Lord will provide.

People don’t have nervous breakdowns over today’s problems; it is what you think you are going to face tomorrow. God’s Word said, “As thy days, so shall thy strength be.” (Deuteronomy 33:25) Years ago, I made it a premise of my life, no matter how badly I want to quit, to never quit at the end of the day: “As thy days, so shall thy strength be.” At the end of the day it is gone. And the promise is precise, “As thy days.” If you have got a big problem, big strength; a little problem, little strength.

“As thy days…”: He measures out your strength.
