2 Chronicles 16:9a – GOD is always on the alert, constantly on the lookout for people who are totally committed to Him.
When God gives you a mission, you can be sure you’ll run into delays, difficulties, detours, and dead ends along the way. They are a natural part of life. But you can be ready for them.
For example, if anybody had a right to be discouraged, it was Noah. Noah trusted God. And when he heard God’s warning about the future, Noah believed Him, even though there was no sign of a flood. I bet there were many days that Noah didn’t feel like going to work, but he went to the same place, and he worked. He never gave up.
Don’t give up on your dream, either. Don’t give up on your marriage. Don’t give up on your health. Don’t give up on your education, business, career, etc. Don’t, don’t, don’t give up, God is in control.
The Bible says, “GOD is always on the alert, constantly on the lookout for people who are totally committed to Him” (2 Chronicles 16:9a). God is looking for people who are committed to Him and His plan so that He can bless them.
Do you want to be one of those people? Then don’t give up!
Don’t give up, it’s not over. When you give up, then its over. Hold-on to the Lord, and trouble not your heart. Even when you fail, It’s not over.
– What is the God-size dream you’ve been ready to give up on because of difficulties and delays?
– How have you grown spiritually through the detours and delays in your life?
– How do you want God to bless you as you commit your life fully to Him?
