When Not To Give Up

There will be days when you will want to give up. There will be times when no matter how much of an optimist you may be, you will come to the end of yourself.

There will be swirling accusations and confusion. Your head will feel foggy and you will wonder why on earth you ever thought it was a good idea to start down this path. 

This is all a part of the process. This is the battle that qualifies you for where you are going. God is building you for your future.

When you get to the moment where it feels like something breaks inside of you and you are ready to let go of your dream, don't let go. The breakthrough is right around the corner.

Remember that guy who gave up? Yeah, neither does anyone else.

When David went out to fight Goliath, he didn't just go up against a huge, strong fighter. That giant was also hurling accusations at him. Not only was Goliath dressed to strike fear, he was running his gigantic mouth trying to intimidate the courage out of David.

It was at that moment that David stood his ground, boldly declaring who he was and what he had come to do. He didn't stand back hesitantly; he ran to the battle and won a great victory! Imagine if he had succumbed to the intense intimidation and given up!

Victory is right around the corner if you stand your ground. Remember who you are in Christ and what He has called you to do, and never, ever give up!
