You’ve heard it said that it is always darkest before the dawn, and I also tell you that things are most difficult just before breakthrough. But, breakthrough is right before you, just ahead. Keep pushing. Don’t sit down, give up, or turn back. Be strong and stay steady until this thrust carries you forward and beyond the defensive line of the enemy. Be victorious, says the Lord. Psalms 7:12 If he does not turn back, he will sharpen his sword; he bends his bow and makes it ready.
