Winston Churchill gave a famous speech where he uttered:
“Never, never, never give up!”
He also said, “If you’re going through hell – keep going.”
I want to urge you today that if you seem to be facing insurmountable odds and life is just too difficult to go on … Keep placing one foot in front of the other! Baby steps.
One step leads to another and before you know it, you are in a new season of life. Life is ever changing and things won’t always remain the same.
Sometimes it’s easy for our emotions to get the best of us and we can readily succumb to the devil’s lies that we should just throw in the towel, that life is just too hard.
Life is hard sometimes and its load can seem overwhelming, but you and I are here for a purpose. God created each one of us and has placed unique gifts and talents inside each of us.
Jesus said, “In this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer for I have overcome the world.” ~ John 16:33
If we have placed our faith, hope and trust in God, then we know that He is able to carry us through seasons that are too difficult to handle alone.
“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”
~ II Corinthians 12:9-11
I pray that if you find the pain of your life unbearable today, my friend, that Jesus would hold you close and reveal His love to you as only He can. You are loved by an Almighty God, who knows everything about you and still chooses to love. That’s love, friend. He loves with an unfailing, never ending kind of love. I pray that God’s peace, the peace that surpasses all human understanding would so envelope your soul that you will find rest and comfort like you’ve never known. Lastly, I pray for God’s grace to be with you during this trying time, that God will provide for your every need and that you will have renewed hope in Christ.
This world is not our home. We are pilgrims passing through until that day when God calls us home. Until then, this world needs you. This world needs to see God’s love demonstrated through your life.
May we all be strengthened in His might and His power to be a blessing to a lost and dying world. Never give up, my friend.
Greater things are in store for you! Your miracle and breakthrough could be just around the corner. Don’t quit now! Keep walking this faith walk. God will give you the strength. Trust Him today.
