Don’t You Dare Give Up,
There are times in our lives when we feel like giving up, sometimes we feel like giving up on our jobs, the boss isn’t the nicest guy so we want to quit. The relationship/marriage that we’re isn’t the greatest, so we want to give up, on the marriage, we want to tap out and say I’m done. We want to quit on life, and just say we don’t want to live anymore. What we need to realize whether you are Christian or not, is that in life, we will face trials, we will face difficulties, even when we do, we can’t give up, God has created you, and me for a reason and a purpose,
James 1:2-4 says Consider it Pure Joy My brethren whenever you face trials of many kinds that the testing of your faith develops perseverance, perseverance must finish it’s work so that you may be mature and complete lacking in nothing. When we face trials in life, and we face the testing our faith that we have will grow stronger, and will eventually develop perseverance. Perseverance will help us to keep going, to keep moving forward, and not to give up. Regardless of what we face we must remember that it is a test to see what are we going to do, are we going to trust in God, not fear, but have faith. Or on the flip side, are we going to fear, and run away, from what it is that we are going through and facing in life.
We need to realize that when we are going through difficulties, when we are going through the fire of the trials, that we can’t stop asking our Father in Heaven, for what we need. Even when we are not in the trials, don’t give up. Is it possible that we are not receiving what we are wanting or the promises that God has for us, because we give up to easily asking him for those promises, or asking him for what we need? How much more can we ask our heavenly father for something, and will He not give it to us in his will, and his time. Matthew 7:7, says Ask, and it shall be given to you, Seek and you shall find, Knock and the door shall be opened to you.
Don’t You Dare Give Up, if you are looking for a healing, don’t give up asking, for that healing, if your marriage is broken, or you want a stronger marriage, don’t give up praying for that restoration, or that stronger marriage. Whatever it is that you are facing today don’t you dare give up. When you are going through the testing and the fire in your life, don’t give up. You have to believe that God has greater things in store for your life, and that God has a bigger plan and purpose than you could ever dream or imagine it could be.
