Don’t Give Up Now!

1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

There are a lot of things you could do in life I am sure but don’t give up on what God has called you to. Satan seems to be fighting every one I know harder than ever right now, causing depression, loneliness, frustration with finances and relationships, he is out to be as discouraging as he can be to try to get the people of God to quit.

Don’t give up and don’t ever quit! God has a plan and he will bring it to pass! You know He will, if He says it He will always come through! Isaiah 40:31 says, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.” If you wait on Him and remain faithful as it says in this verse in Corinthians your labor will not be in vain and God has promised to give you the strength you need to make it.

Claim victory over Satan and his lies today that he is telling you to cause you to be discouraged. Somehow, God will move that mountain in front of you if you will just hold on to your faith and hope in Him! You don’t want to fall like the Israelites did in the wilderness when they just gave up because they felt they had waited too long for Moses to come down from the mountain when He was meeting with God. They decided ‘ well, God hasn’t moved fast enough for us and we are tired of waiting so we will make our own god and find another way.’ How foolish and yet there are times we do similar things by not waiting for God to come through on our behalf.

Be encouraged that whatever it is God has asked you to do right now that it isn’t in vain, He has a purpose even if you can’t see it right now. Hold on to His promise in this verse that your labor is not in vain. Trust Him to always do what is best. He loves you and cares about all that you are going through and facing, the best is truly yet to come but it will be found in Him and nothing else!
