Always Pray and Never Give Up
Jesus made it clear “Men ought to always pray and never give up”. Luke 18:1
Praying keeps our heart healthy… Proverbs 4:23 (ESV)
Keep your heart with all vigilance,
for from it flow the springs of life.
When our heart is strong we can see everything else with greater clarity and determine to get up each time we stumble. Remember Proverbs 24:16, “For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again”.
You will be tempted and tried; Don’t give up.
Difficult times will come and go; Don’t give up.
Satan will attempt to get us to gaze at our issues and difficulties in light of what are WE going to do about it. Instead, we should look at our issue/issues and difficulties in light of what HE is going to do with it. Remember what David said as he approached Goliath in battle “You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts….”.
Run at your hardship in the Name of the Lord, in His authority, not your own.
Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. Jude 24-25
