When I feel like giving up...
I read an interesting thing this morning. "Change isn't giving up; doing nothing is giving up."
I have to admit I get discouraged sometimes and feel like giving up. But as I was reading these verses I realize giving up for the Christian is just not an option. God is with me and has went before me. So if you are weary and tired and just worn to a frazzle....think on these things....
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do
not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD
your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. Deut. 31:6
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Eph. 6:10
The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. Psalm 28:7
I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD; I will make mention of Your righteousness, of
Yours only. Psalm 71:16
But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up
with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not
faint. Isaiah 40:31
Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run
in such a way that you may obtain it. I Cor. 9:24
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay
aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance
the race that is set before us, Heb. 12:1
Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts. Zech. 4:6
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. II Tim.
It is God who arms me with strength, And makes my way perfect. Psalm 18:32
