“We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed” (2 Corinthians 4:8-9 NLT).
Paul understood that success didn’t mean that you would stop facing problems. In fact, success brings on a new round of problems. But Paul had already committed to never giving up.
Look at all he faced in his ministry: stoning, imprisonment, being left for dead and yet Paul kept going.
Successful people fail, but they have staying power. They refuse to quit.
I don’t know what you’re facing in your life or family, but I believe God wants you to succeed in anything you’re doing for Him. Let Paul’s life be a model for you.
Father, I receive the grace never to give up till I fulfill my dreams in Jesus name.
