A reminder for today
For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God. (1 John 5:4-5)
Giving up is such an easy thing to do. The minute things are not going our way we would rather give up than to continue the fight. When you want something, why would you stop half way and give up when you have already invested so much to achieve it. Jesus is the perfect example of not giving up, because He did not flee from the cross and gave up after He was so badly beaten. Jesus continued and finally with a beaten and broken body He carried His cross to His death so that He can save you and me. So why would you give up if He continued until the end.
It is the evil in this world that wants to defeat us and force us to give up and quit the fight. We have more than the abilities to defeat the evil in this world, because within us dwells a almighty God and with Him we can do anything and we achieve this victory through our faith.
So today I want to challenge you to stop giving up so easily and to continue the fight until the end. We do not have a Spirit of fear, we have Spirit of strength and power and with Him nothing can defeat us. There is no end to God’s resources and this means that there is no end to our strength.
Lord I pray that you will give us the strength and determination so that we will never give up, but that we will always fight evil and defeat it through our faith. We believe in you Lord Jesus and we accept you as our Lord and Saviour. In Jesus name.
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
