Never, ever give up

"Remember those early days after you first saw the light? Those were the hard times! Kicked around in public, targets of every kind of abuse—some days it was you, other days your friends. If some friends went to prison, you stuck by them. If some enemies broke in and seized your goods, you let them go with a smile, knowing they couldn't touch your real treasure. Nothing they did bothered you, nothing set you back. So don't throw it all away now. You were sure of yourselves then. It's still a sure thing! But you need to stick it out, staying with God's plan so you'll be there for the promised completion.

It won't be long now, he's on the way; he'll show up most any minute.

'But anyone who is right with me thrives on loyal trust; if he cuts and runs, I won't be very happy.'

But we're not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We'll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way." (Hebrews 10: 35-39 Message)

Not that I have any doubters that read this blog, I just thought it might be important to reestablish God's view on any situation you might be facing today.

You and I aren't going to quit on God.

He's on your side. Well, He's on my side, too.

If you're facing something today and it doesn't appear the answer is coming as quickly as you'd hoped, rest assured, the answer is on its way. No quitting. No giving up on what God has promised you.

Do you feel you've been waiting a long time? Join the club.

The greater the promise, the greater the fight. No retreat. Stand fast and watch God do the impossible in your life -- in His timing.

"Don't drag your feet. Be like those who stay the course with committed faith and then get everything promised to them." (Hebrews 6:12 Message)
