TOPIC: GOD IS SAYING, “DONT QUIT” 2 By Bishop Dr Chris Kwakpovwe
Share with me this poetic piece by John Greenleaf Whither titled, DON QUIT”
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you re trudging seems uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When all is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint on the clouds of doubt
And you can never tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems far
But stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
lt’s when things go wrong that you must not quit.

1 And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword.
2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time.
3 And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there.
4 But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers.
5 And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat.
6 And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again.
7 And the angel of the Lord came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee.
8 And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.
9 And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?
10 And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake:
12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
13 And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
14 And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
15 And the Lord said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria:
16 And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.
17 And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.
18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

From today’s scripture, like most of us, Elijah got to the point where he wanted to quit! He experienced so many wonders and displayed DIVINE EXPLOITS against hell! Here was a man who “stopped” the rain for more than three years (1 Kings 17:1). He was a man who was fed by ravens (1 Kings 17:4)a divine provision miracle. He had seen the dead raised back to life (1 Kings 17:22) and he had disgraced the prophets of “Baal cult” by calling down fire from heaven (1 Kings 18:38). But when his season of attack came through JEZEBEL’S NATIONAL DEATH SENTENCE ON HIM, Elijah couldn’t take it anymore. He ran for his dear life and PRAYED TO DIE! Ah! Listen, we all have passed through that road. I am a living witness! But at last, Elijah was restored and he ended his ministry with signs and wonders-HE DID NOT DIE! HE LEFT THIS EARTH WITH A CHARIOT-OF-FIRE-DIVINE ESCORT Wow! No matter how 2020 has been, REFUSE TO BE EXHAUSTED! REFUSE TO QUIT! Refuse to give in to those suicide thoughts! REFUSE SAD, DEPRESSIVE MOODS! Don’t run to alcohol or drugs! Don’t give up! What you do is: eyes front, head high to the finish. See it through! Take time to care for yourself physically, spiritually, and emotionally-and then get back in the game! Winners don’t quit and quitters don’t win! Hold on! Trust on, O child of God! I see greater days ahead for you! Trust God and expect that delayed miracle! It will come because I hear a sound of elevation and OPEN REWARD in your house! Amen and amen.
