“It's hard to beat a person who never gives up.” -Babe Ruth

When you know you have heard from God correctly about a direction to go in your life, don’t quit! If it’s clear that you will not be sinning in going that way, GO!

When the naysayers come and tell you ridiculous things like, “If it was God’s will, it wouldn’t be this hard,” if you know you’ve heard from God correctly, try harder. Let your actions speak louder than their negative and uninspiring words. Grow, mature, and become complete, not lacking anything (James 1:2-4). Again, when you know the direction God has called you, obey Him and ignore all of the noise around you. Ignore it! People may think they are being well-meaning by trying to keep you from pain, but that might just be because they’ve never experienced the great joy and incredible gift you are about to receive from God for not quitting on Him and working hard through the pain for this amazing gift that they don’t realize is even attainable.

Imagine if Job would have quit and cursed God. But He didn’t. We see God Blessing Job’s life even through great pain and suffering. We see in Job 42:12, “The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part.”

And here’s something to be thankful for: those men and women that come alongside of you and don’t whine, or complain, or make excuses for you or themselves along the way. Be thankful for the positive people in your life! They can be few and far between. They are gifts given to you by Almighty God. Be thankful for them and be thankful to God for bringing them into your life. Remember them and thank them face to face or write them a note. How about doing that right now? I encourage you to do what it says in Hebrews 10:24: “Consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.”

Imagine where Israel would be today if Abraham would have given up on God and His promise that He made that Abraham would be a great nation. Even through the difficulties he faced, including some that were self-inflicted, he didn’t give up and trusted in Almighty God. Don’t quit!

Trust Almighty God in all you do. If He really is Creator God, then you wouldn’t even exist right now without Him. Be thankful for Him and the gift of life He has given you. Don’t quit!
