Lord, I want to Give Up

Divider

My soul also is greatly troubled.

Psalms 6:3


Have you ever been at a place of wanting to give up? We can get so tired of the daily pressures of life that it’s tempting to get in our cars and simply drive away. Yet we know it’s not possible to escape the daily responsibilities of our lives. What can we do when we want to give up? We can learn to P.E.R.S.E.V.E.R.E.

P – Pray to God for strength (Psalm 46:1).
We won’t give up when God renews our strength as we seek His help and direction to move forward.

E – Engage our faith (2 Corinthians 5:7).
We won’t give up as we engage our faith with action and not just words by taking those steps of trusting in God.

We won’t give up when we remember that God always keeps His promises.

S – Stay firm in the freedom from sin (Galatians 5:1).
We won’t give up when we deal with our sin instead of trying to cover it up.

E – Encourage others in the faith (1 Thessalonians 5:11).
We won’t give up as we take our attention off ourselves and find ways to help others in the faith.

V – Vacate negative thinking (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).
We won’t give up if we refuse to allow the seeds of doubt and fear to take root in our minds.

E – Equip ourselves spiritually (Ephesians 6:10-20).
We won’t give up if we continue to put on our spiritual armor every single day.

R – Renew our minds with God’s word (Psalm 119:15).
We won’t give up if we feed our hearts and minds with God’s word every morning and meditate throughout the day.

E – Excel in our spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12:1-11).
We won’t give up if we are using our spiritual gifts to build up the church and find ourselves making valuable contributions.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I won’t give up as long as You are with me. Strengthen my heart and mind to continue forward even when things get difficult. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
