“On the seventh day, march around the city seven times” (Joshua 6:4).
I believe there is a God in heaven who directs our steps, who prepares good works in advance, who causes all things to work together for good, who fights our battles for us! And if we pray through, there will be a breakthrough!
Don’t lose heart. Don’t lose hope. Don’t lose faith. Don’t lose patience.
I don’t know what you’ve been [praying] for the last forty days or forty weeks or forty years. I don’t know if you’ve gotten a yes, a no, or a not yet. You’ve got to praise God if the answer is yes and trust Him if the answer is no. If the answer is not yet, you’ve got to keep [praying]. It’s always too soon to give up!
