DON'T GIVE UP
Remember that guy that gave up? Neither does anyone else – Unknown.
God isn't in the business of giving up. He never gives up on anything. He didn't give up on the Israelites even though they didn't obey Him. He corrected them, but He never gave up on them.
He never gives up on us either, regardless of the mistakes we make, or the mess we get ourselves into.
God is always with us and on our side. His love is everlasting, and His compassion and mercies are new every morning.
Nope, He is not in the business of giving up.
With Him as our example, don't you think we shouldn't give up either?
Not give up on relationships. Not give up on our dreams. Not give up on our calling. Not give up on doing what He has instructed us to do when it becomes hard.
Not give up on love, faith or hope.
When we focus on the world and on circumstances, it is easy to feel discouraged and to want to give up.
But when we focus on Jesus, on who He is and what He has done for us, we are filled with hope, peace and joy, and it becomes easier to go on.
No one remembers the guy who gives up. You can't accomplish anything by giving up. So don't. Keep going. Keep believing. Keep hoping. Keep walking with God. It might not always be easy, but it is certainly worth it.
ACTION STEP: Are you on the verge of giving up? Check your focus. Keep your eyes on Jesus. Let Him fill you with the strength, the courage and the hope you need to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
