The Word for Today 2024

Don’t even THINK about giving up!

‘We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing;’ 2 Corinthians 4:8 NASB

We give up because: 1) We fear failure. Past hurts and mistakes haunt us, and we think it’s better not to try again than risk failing. Don’t spend your life digging up bones! We all have things in our past that we would rather forget. Put them behind you. Paul writes, ‘Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead’ (Philippians 3:13 CSB). 2) We worry about what people will say. ‘The fear of man brings a snare’ (Proverbs 29:25 NKJV). How you respond to criticism is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. There will always be people who won’t like or understand you. 3) We listen to the wrong voices. Satan is the Father of Lies and will do everything he can to discourage you. Paul says, ‘Demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God … take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ’ (2 Corinthians 10:5 NIV). When a thought comes, examine it. If it’s from God, receive it; if it’s from Satan, demolish it. 4) We lose focus. As believers, we’re to walk by faith, not by sight (see 2 Corinthians 5:7). That means making every decision based on what God says and not what you see with your natural eyes. 5) We lose touch with other believers. When the apostles got out of jail, they went back to ‘their own company’ (Acts 4:23 KJV). To stay strong, you need fellowship with other Christians. Too many people give up on the verge of success; don’t be one of them. There is only one degree of difference between hot water and steam – so keep going, and don’t even think of giving up!

God is Always Speaking

“Hello God, are you there?  Why don’t you answer me?” I’m sure that has come out of our mouths at least once in our lifetime. Sometimes the idea is that God has turned off or gone quiet.  It’s not like He’s keeping silent to teach us a lesson in faith. The reality is,...

I Asked God to Help Me Grow, It Started Raining

I feel like the “raining and pruning” is a never ending process in the Christian journey. No surprise as God’s more interested in the person we’re becoming, than the places we end up. I don’t know many times I’ve prayed, “God I want to grow, I want to change” and then...

Three Ways to Get Spiritually Refreshed

God is Always at Work – We’re not Always Seeing It

The fact is that God is always “up to something”. He’s purposely been out-working His redemptive plan, a plan that’s been underway since day one, way back in the garden. In fact, before the garden.

Truth, Lies and Financial Freedom
