When you reach the end of the rope, the decision you make is critical, do you just give up, let go and die? Or do you climb to the top, because you are more than a conqueror, a fighter, ambitious, or just tenacious. Some people fail to realize that no one ever gets to the top of a mountain without climbing. However, nothing beats the prepared mind that knows that it will never be easy and there will be delays, bumps and bruises, but the thought of giving up never enters the mind because once they reach to the top the challenge becomes easier. At the top there is plenty of room because very few are tenacious enough to go the distance or all the way. Unfortunately not may people have the patience or stamina to fight to the end.
However, as a child of God, giving up is not an option and quitting is not a choice. “Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary, His understanding is unsearchable, He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.” – Isaiah 40:28-29 Why are so many Christians giving up? Why has the Christian conformed to the world, and like the unbeliever is complaining and murmuring instead of being transformed by renewing their minds by praying to, praising and thanking God? Have they stopped reading their Bibles? Have they given up on God? I would hope not because He never gives up on us. Have they forgotten His promises, of never leaving or forsaking them, as is written in Hebrews 13:5? Have they forgotten that, “When the righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles; The Lord is near unto those who are of a broken heart, and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit; Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivereth him out of them all,” as is written in Psalm 34:17-19? Are you giving up because you are unfaithful and unrighteous? You can change all that by confessing your sins and indiscretions and get right with God so you don’t end up where you don’t want to, in a place called hell. 1 John 1:9 tells us that, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” SO KICK THE DEVIL TO THE CURB AND TAKE UP YOUR CROSS AND FOLLOW JESUS!
Don’t give up and quit, it’s time to put your hope, trust, faith and confidence back in God, who owns the universe and everything in it including you. The devil does not own you. “What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are brought with a price; therefore, glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 If you are not glorifying God then it means you are glorifying the devil by complaining and murmuring. Today, make a promise to yourself to never give up. Let’s follow the Apostle Paul’s advise from God in Philippians 3:13-14, “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended; but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
Here is another reminder, Romans 8:37-39 tells us that in all things we are more than conquerors through Him that loves us… and nothing shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus, our Lord; unless you have rejected God’s love and gift of His only begotten Son Jesus Christ. John 3:16-17 tells us the purpose of Jesus’ coming. When you are a child of God then His grace is sufficient for you, for His strength is made perfect in weakness as 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 points out. Moreover the battle is never yours, it’s the Lord’s once you accept the gift of His Son. 2 Chronicles 20:15 says, “And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”
However, if you are not a Christian, you have the power to turn things around by going to the top of this blog, clicking on to the salvation page, and following the instructions. Be a conqueror through Christ Jesus, DON’T GIVE UP, BUT CLIMB AND FIGHT, it will be worth it in the end. Quitters never win and winners never quit.
