Are you considering quitting? Life is full of quitters and quitting points, but give it few days, one more attempt in addition to divine hand, you would have turned the corner. If you throw in the towel on your marriage, your ministry, job or dream, you may regret it for the rest of your life. It is only by staying in the race can God empower you to win.
FB Meyer says, ‘You never test the resources of God until you attempt the impossible.’ This is even true when you ponder on discoveries made by human beings. Quitting does not build character, endurance does because it develops something in you that nothing else can – it sustains courage, gives staying power to discipline and equally turns dreams to reality.
Nobody knew more about endurance and doggedness than Jesus Christ of Nazareth, He endured all the way to the cross. He was humiliated and forsaken but refused to give up. What kept Him going was found in Hebrews 12:2 – who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross.
Remember, God rewards those who earnestly and persistently seek Him (Heb 11:6). The Word of God says you will find Him when you seek Him with all of your heart (Jer 29:13). These promises are meant for you. Therefore you must keep on going and trusting God for the ability to break through and suddenly you will discover that your quitting point was not as important and strong as you thought; instead of being made of concrete, it was actually a product made of ordinary paper!
