DON’T GIVE UP AND QUIT
“If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.”
Proverbs 24:10 KJV
I’m sure when Jesus was here on His mission that He felt like giving up and quitting many times. He was human just as we are and felt all the emotions we feel. He was ridiculed, rejected, cursed, spat on and He endured an agony and excruciating pain that you and I will never know. What a loving Saviour!
Helen L. Lemmel wrote the beautiful hymn “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”. It is one of my favorite hymns. “Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace.” May God help us to keep our eyes on Jesus.
If Jesus had gave up and quit, you and I would be on our way to hell for all eternity. Thank God that Jesus didn’t quit, that He loves us so much He was willing to leave His Home, His Father and all that He had to come to earth and die on the cross for our sins. What a Friend, what a Saviour, this Jesus of
The next time we are tempted to give up and quit we need to ask Jesus to help us. He understands how we feel and He will pick us up in His loving arms and will carry us through our dark valleys until the pain goes away and He will be faithful to set us again on the mountain top of happiness.
I’ve said this many times but it is so important that you allow it to go from head knowledge to heart knowledge. Nobody loves you like Jesus loves you and nobody ever will. He laughs with you and weeps with you. He also sits beside your bed when you can’t sleep and holds your hand. O how Jesus loves you.
