Never, never, never give up
October 29, 1941, Winston Churchill spoke at his old school (where he almost flunked as a youth) and he said, “…never give in, never give in, never, never, never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.”
Where in your life do you feel like giving up?
There are times when our bodies seem to give up on us and we in turn give up on our bodies. Then there are those who have betrayed us or simply dropped out of our lives and we in turn give up on them. Sometimes we give up on our church if we feel they have given up on us. Sometimes we may feel God has given up on us and may make us want to give up on God.
Philippians 4:12-13 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.
Paul understands what it is like to go through the ups and downs of life. Paul learned that through the good and bad he can always have what needs to be strong. It is never giving up on God.
God is with us during not only the good times but the hard time too. He is with you and me. He never leaves our side. He knows what is in our minds and hearts when no one else does. There is strength in being His child and knowing He never forsakes His children. He always provides what we need to get through life but we need to walk with Him too and remember He is greater than any good or bad things we can ever go through. He is our source of strength.
So never give up on God, He will never give up on you.
