Luke 21:19 “By your perseverance you will secure your lives.”
Winners never quit, and quitters never win. As a Christian, I always win when I don’t give up. There are so many times, when I feel like giving up. Things are not going according to my plan, so discouragement sets in. I friend of mine taught me that “expectations are premeditated resentment.” Expect God’s grace – not our plans of success. God calls us to be faithful not successful!
The only way Satan wins is if I give up. When I repent for trying to control my life, I win! Then, God is free to work His plan for my life through me.
Lord, thank You for giving me the Holy Spirit and the gift of perseverance. I praise You for teaching me that surrendering to You is the source of true success.
When have you given up on the Lord? How can you show your trust in God, leaning on Him and seeking His guidance through difficult and trying times?
