Giving up is never an option for a Christian. If God has called you to some great work, He will see that your work will be finished. If God tells you to fly, He will give you wings.
Admittedly, there are believers who launch half-baked projects that are void of planning, preparation, and, most importantly, God’s will. These plans are destined to fail, for they are not in accordance to God’s will.
Is this to say that we will always have the wind to our back or that our paths will be lined with roses? No. Certainly not. On the contrary, when we are seeking to carry out God’s plans, we will likely face opposition for Satan. Many faithful Christians cross the finish line bloodied and bruised, but they cross the finish line all the same.
There is no place in the Christian’s life for despair. Again, if you are operating in God’s will, He will see that you are successful. You will reap the harvest if you do not grow faint.
Let’s talk about despair. Both Peter and Judas betrayed our Lord Jesus. Both were sorrowful for their woeful actions, but Judas, in despair, took his own life while Peter sought restoration. Both Peter and Judas acted cowardly, but only one, Judas, died a coward. Peter died a hero.
If you hear mysterious voices telling you to give up, check the air for the scent of sulfur and brimstone.
