I Can't Give Up Now!

Romans 4:20-21

Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave Glory to God being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.

It’s hard to keep holding on when it appears that nothing is changing and you’re running out of time. Sometimes, you feel like what’s the use of trying when it seems like nothing is changing and my promise is yet to be fulfilled. It is during these times that you have to lean back on your faith and trust that what God said he will do that he will bring it to pass. Could it be that God is more patient with us than we are with him? How long did God wait on you to get it together? Is he still waiting?

Abraham waited on God to give him a son for a long time. His body was ‘as good as dead’ and he was at least 100 years old waiting on a son. What is it that you have been waiting a long time for? You can’t give up now! Abraham held on to God’s promise that he would give him a son even though it looked like he would never get. How did he do it?!

He did not waiver through unbelief. We are all going to be faced with unbelief because the situation may look like it’s not going to change but there must be an inner assurance that will not allow us to waiver or to be moved. Unbelief is like the wind that Peter heard while he was walking on water. He took his eyes off of Jesus and allowed the wind to move him. Don’t be moved by unbelief, keep your eyes on Jesus.

He was strengthened in his faith. The way you strengthen your faith is to remind yourself of what God has spoken through his word, regular church attendance and serving others. The only way you strengthen your faith is by using it.
Give God Glory. The way you Give God Glory is Be Anxious for nothing, Pray about everything and be thankful for anything then God will give you peace which surpasses all human understanding. Give God the credit for what he’s already done and what he’s going to do.

He was fully persuaded that God had the power to do what he promised. God’s got the power to do what he promised! You must be fully convinced that God has the power to finish his promise.

Dear God,

I can’t give up now, I’ve come too far from where I started from. I am fully persuaded that in spite of what it looks like that you are able to finish what you started. I believe you will do what you promised. I can’t and I won’t give up now!

In Jesus Name,
