Have you ever wanted to give up?
You probably have. Who hasn't?
Does wanting to quit make you a failure? No.
No one said that following Christ was going to be easy. No one said it was going to be fun. All they promised is that it would be worth it it in the end.
Don't ever give up. God has big plans for your life, and he wants to fulfill them. Seek Him daily. This is a new season in your life. Don't be compliant in your faith this year. Be adamant, vigorous, uncompromising, unstoppable, determined; be relentless.
For the next couple of months, I'm going to be doing a study by John Bevere called Relentless. It talks about being relentless in your faith, and ruling in life as the Bible talks about in Romans 5:17:
"For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ." (NKJV)
That is what I want, and as I ask I shall receive. Is that stuck up? No. That's faith.
What do you want in 2013?
