It makes me sad to think that at one point or another in our lives, we gave up.
We gave up on where God was taking us. We gave up on His path and teachings.
Imagine having a toddler who easily gave up on walking just because they fell a few times. As a grown up, you know it takes falling a few times to grasp the strength to stand and eventually walk. I am yet to see or hear of anyone who went from crawling to walking without falling. This indicates that, there will be bumps on the road as one grows.
You will face trails, temptations, tribulations and challenges in your walk with Christ however, one thing you should never do is quit. Because You Are Built To Stand.
You see, there is a reward at the end of the hardship season. A reward not only in Heaven but here on earth.
“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trails, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”
You are the image and likeness of God and as such, giving up is not an option.
The strength you carry has no match because the Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you.
“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”
Generations are relying on your endurance. Your children’s children are relying on your steadfastness so don’t give up. You possess all the strength that you need.
You are unshakable, You are fearless, You are strong and more than anything, You Are Built To Stand.
2 Corinthians 4:8
“We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed……”
I’m Praying For You.
