Don’t Give Up!

Calhoun Times - - RELIGION -

we would most likely never ad­mit it, what we’re say­ing is, I know a bet­ter way. This is a sign of spir­i­tual weak­ness.

The other op­tion is to run to God. This is a sign of spir­i­tual strength. By choos­ing this op­tion, we are ad­mit­ting our de­pen­dence on God.

Two of my stu­dents sing a song ti­tled, “Bet­ter than a Hal­lelu­jah.” It says we pour out our mis­eries, God just hears a melody. God loves to hear our cries for help, and he is al­ways near when we call on Him.

Are you strug­gling to­day? Maybe you’ve blown an op­por­tu­nity. Maybe you’ve fallen vic­tim to some­one or some­thing. Maybe there’s been a void left in your life by loss. It’s time for you to cry out to God and run to Him, in­stead of away from Him. Je­sus said, “In this world you will have tribu­la­tion: but be of good cheer; I have over­come the world.”

Re­mem­ber, all of our help comes from the Lord. Reach out for Him and change your di­rec­tion. Don’t give up in tough times. The one who holds the uni­verse to­gether is hold­ing you too!

Make sure you don’t sep­a­rate your­self from God’s plan, or His peo­ple. Read God’s Word! The Bi­ble is the sword of the Spirit, and you need it to fight against op­pres­sion and de­pres­sion.

And lastly, when God has de­liv­ered you, don’t for­get where he has brought you from. Of­fer thanks to Him and tes­ti­monies of His faith­ful­ness. Some­one near you needs to hear your verse of “Vic­tory in Je­sus” to­day.

Be Blessed.
