Don’t Lose Heart        

Hebrews 12 3

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 12:3

Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Jesus is the Son of God, pure and holy, yet He suffered and died for us. Everything He went through was an example for us so that we too can continue what we have been called to do. What we go through now is nothing compared to the glory God will reveal to us later. (Romans 8:18) Your hardest times will often lead to the greatest moments in your life. Keep fighting the good fight, be strong in your faith and don’t lose heart. It will all be worth it in the end.

Wait, Hope, Believe

Psalm 27 14

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 27:14

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.

 

We’re not always good at waiting, it’s just our nature.  We get impatient, frustrated and start to doubt God’s will in our lives.  Instead we need to be confident in God’s love for us.  We need to wait on the Lord’s timing, hope in His mercy and believe in His promises!

Be an Overcomer

Romans 12 21

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 12:21

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

It’s easy to see that the devil is busy stirring up evil all over the world.  That’s why we, as Christians, need to keep vigilant and put on the whole armor of God.  Don’t repay evil for evil, instead love your enemies and pray for them.  Keep doing good deeds and don’t let evil weaken you.  Be strong and courageous in your faith, be an overcomer.

Strong & Courageous

The Lord has commanded you to be strong and courageous.  When you are afraid and discouraged turn to God.  It doesn’t matter what it is, you don’t have to do it alone, He will be with you every step of the way.  Trust in God and by His power He will give you the strength and courage to get through anything.

Be Strong & Don’t Give Up

2 Chronicles 15 7

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Chronicles 15:7

But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.

 

We all have times when we feel discouraged and we feel like giving up and quitting.  If the Lord has put a “work” in your heart He will make a way for you to do it.  That doesn’t mean it won’t be hard, because it might be, but that’s okay because God is on your side. What you do for God, and for his honor and service, will not be overlooked. Be strong and don’t give up!

Perseverance

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

 

When times are tough, when you are struggling or when things in your life seem stagnant, stay strong and don’t give up. Don’t lose your confidence in God and His promises. Wait without giving up, you only fail if you quit. God is in control so have faith in His timing. Do what God asks of you, finish your race strong and you will receive what He has promised.
