Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 2:3).
WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT
One of the oldest tactics of the devil is getting us to feel like quitting. His goal is to make you think you can’t go another step. If we allow that, we will begin saying and believing all the wrong things. We will believe there is no end in sight to the thing we are fighting, so why try? If you’ve ever felt like giving up, then that should serve as a sign that you shouldn’t. Never believe there isn’t a light at the end of the tunnel. Remind yourself of all the feats of faith others have endured. In fact, Hebrews 11 is a compilation of just that. The minute we think we have endured the worst, there is always someone out there who has gone through just the same or worse. Reminding ourselves of this isn’t meant to minimize our battle, it reminds us that we can keep going and know there are others out there who have made it through. We can keep going because we know God will give the divine ability to endure so we can come out in victory.
