Topic: God Never Gives Up [Monday, 19th June 2017]
…for God is love. 1 John 4:8
Love – God – is so enduring that His endurance stretches beyond the limit we can’t ever imagine. This is a true picture of God. There was a time when it seems like God has given up on the whole human race. He said in Genesis 6:7 that “I will wipe this human race I have created from the face of the earth. Yes, and I will destroy every living thing—all the people, the large animals, the small animals that scurry along the ground, and even the birds of the sky. I am sorry I ever made them.” This statement, looking intently into it, sealed the human race’s fate, right? No, it didn’t. God could not give up on the human race and through Noah He preserved the human race.
Scriptures say in 1 Corinthians 13:7 that “love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” God was always hopeful and never lost faith that the human race will turn to Him again, and that faith has been rewarded with billions of people turning their hearts to Him. Love never gives up, not even when the odds are not in its favour. Why? Because Love knows He is the strongest force on earth.
God will not give up on any man, no matter how lost that man is. Love – God – will go all out for him. The parables of the lost sheep and coin emphasizes this point. Love will always find the lost and bring him back to the fold. God never gives up, loses faith, become hopeless, and endures through every circumstances. Be like God. Don’t ever give up, lose faith, become hopeless, endure through every circumstances.
Keep winning daily.
Dear Lord, thank You for not giving up on me, even when I rejected You several times. By the working of Your Spirit in and through me, I will never give up, lose faith or become hopeless, and I will endure through every circumstances, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
