Don’t Give Up!
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.
