Never, ever give up
Are you feeling desperate today? Without hope and ready to give up?
Listen to the British statesman, Winston Churchill’s shortest and most striking speech he delivered at the famous Harrow school for boys: “Never give in. Never, never, never! In nothing, great or small, large or petty. Never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.”
Listen also to the Psalmist’s words in Psalm 71:14-16: “I will never give up hope or stop praising you. All day long I will tell the wonderful things you do to save your people. But you have done much more than I could possibly know. I will praise you, LORD God, for your mighty deeds and your power to save.”
When we find ourselves in a difficult situation, let us make a concious decision to start praising God for the miracles and breakthroughs in our lives. And let us stand firm in the storm. Remember, nobody would ever have crossed the ocean if we were able to get out of the boat in the middle of the storm.
Note: Apologies to those readers who tried to comment and couldn't. Thanks for letting me know. I had the "do not allow" on the comment options. It's fine now.
