Someone recently told me, “this week I have faced such temptation to quit.”
Day 17 is NOT the day to quit, we want to make it to the end and finish STRONG!
Quitting is not an option for us. When you begin to think about quitting, you start talking about quitting and usually it won’t take long before you actually quit.
I’m here to encourage you today that you don’t have to quit. Let God give you “Finishing Strength” today.
Hebrews 10:39 says,
“But we’re not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We’ll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way”.
It starts with focus. We need to get our eyes off the immediate and see the reward ahead. It is possible to be so focused on what we aren’t eating that we spend the day looking down instead of up.
I love how this next scripture says it –
“Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from His perspective.”
No matter what it is in life, if the option to give up and quit is available, you entertain the option of quitting when things get tough and challenging. We need to understand that we are in a spiritual battle and the enemy will throw everything he can at you because he doesn’t want you to pursue a greater knowledge of Jesus.
Today I remind you that you are more than a conqueror in Jesus Christ.
The writer of Hebrews gives us some encouraging thoughts,
“So don’t throw it all away now. You were sure of yourselves then. It’s still a sure thing! But you need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion… But we’re not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We’ll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way.”
