Do not ever give up on God because He will not give up on you.

2 Co. 12:9 KJV And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

You might find yourself thinking I can not go on.
God Word reminds us that God did not give up on Paul when He said “My grace is sufficient for you.”

If you decide you cannot go on, it means that you do not want to try. If whatever you are wanting to do seems hopeless, pray that the Lord will provide direction that will give you hope. The Lord may give you a new revelation for solution. The Lord may send someone your way that will shed new light on your dilemma. Keep trying, always.

Who knows you might be considered a genius for coming up with problem resolution. Thomas Edison said it best though, “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.” The grace of God is always a blessing to receive.

What you may not be able to do, God will show you how to be able. Because He is, you will be.

2 Co. 9:8 KJV And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

How many times have you said that you are not able to do a task?
God Word reminds you that you are able because He is able to use you to accomplish his end.

What looks so overwhelming on the surface is limiting God’s ability to help you be able. You are able to accomplish so much more but you have not convinced yourself that it is possible. With God’s assistance all things are possible.

When you are successful in accomplishing something that seemed impossible, it is uplifting to rejoice in your success. Continue to enjoy life and all of its challenges. There will be many. Some you will be able to tackle with God’s help. Others you will be able to do because God places someone in your path to assist you. Yes, thank you Jesus for being there for all of us.

Believe in God’s continuing presence.

Hebrews 13:5 KJV Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Without God in your life you say: I feel all alone.
God’s Word reveals a promised presence: I will never leave you.

Discovering that you are never alone changes how you see life. Life is full of many ups and downs. You are on cloud nine when things are going well. You don’t need to leave that cloud just because your situation does not go as expected. The Bible reveals that God freed the Israelites from Egyptian bondage and sent then to find the promised land. The be no longer considered slave to oppression was a great feeling. However, the journey that they were undertaking had many downfalls they did not expect. Each time that trouble was encountered they forgot that God’s presence was still with them.

We too are delivered from bondage when we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. That does not mean that you will never have problems. It simply means that the Lord’s presence will always be with you.

God says, No problem, mate.

2 Timothy 1:7 KJV For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Your experience reveals that you often say: I am afraid.
God Word reminds you that you have no reason to fear: God has not given you a spirit of fear.

Ira Stanphill wrote these words in a song, “I don’t worry o’er the future, For I know what Jesus said, And today I’ll walk beside Him, For He knows what lies ahead.”

You can contemplate what the future may hold for you, but you must know that God has a plan for you, and He will always be with you. Face each day with the confidence that God is going to give you the solution to whatever problem that comes your way. If you have prayed for protection, believe it will come. If you have given your life to Jesus, then, allow His presence to reveal to you the way through it all. Jesus is the Solid Rock. Jesus is your anchor. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. Enjoy each day, my friend.
