Never, never give up! Giving up is not an option for those who are truly born of God. When you have inside of you the conviction from the Holy Spirit that the word of God is true and authentic, you will not think about giving up on God’s promises for your well being. In fact, whether God has promised or not, I can’t give up on life’s basic needs, or else how will I survive? Now, how much more should I believe since I have His written promises for my life?
Many Christians have given away their divine rights to be blessed in every sphere of their lives and are now living a life of disgrace and shame. How can God be glorified in a life of a person that is sick, unemployed, bewitched, homeless, depressed or without even the basic needs of life? The way forward for you, child of God is that you don’t quit, yes you don’t give up. Apostle Paul said in his confidence and determination to keep on going and wining.
I press toward the goal to the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14 MEV
That’s what we must do, press on towards the goal. We neither look nor turn back. When it comes to believing and obeying God’s word, there must be no wavering in faith. When you give up on God and His promises, you are giving away your birth rights.
I know that it is not easy and effortless to be successful in life, however, there are too many who give up when they are too close to conquer what they want. Please take a look at this picture and think about it.
And let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9 MEV .
You are close, you are almost there, don’t give up! Keep on trusting and obeying God. Your happiness and success in life, even the salvation of your soul, is worth the pain and the sacrifices that you need to make. You should never bargain with what is important to you. In my opinion, it is foolishness to give up! If one gives up on their spiritual life’s fulfilment, health, love life, finical life, academic life etc, what’s left for them?
You should never exchange the truth for lies. You are going to make it, as long as you keep on trusting and obeying God. Do you know what you are worth? If you know what you are worth, go all out to get what you deserve without breaking God’s laws that will protect you. We sacrifice today for tomorrow’s betterment! What is it that life seems worthless and useless without it? Is there something that you are willing to fight for and die for? Go after it, for you will possess whatever you pursue. That’s the way forward.
