DO. NOT. QUIT.
Updated: May 11, 2022
"Do not [earnestly] remember the former things; neither consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." (Isaiah 43:18-19 AMPC)
God does not give up on us, ever. He is all about new beginnings. Don't give up on yourself. Keep trying.
DO. NOT. QUIT.
Our victory is assured by the blood of Jesus.
"But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Corinthians 15:57 AMPC)
When we begin again, we're in a place of power because we've learned what doesn't work. Starting over is not about starting from scratch but starting from experience! It's about starting from power, God's power which cannot fail. All we have to do is believe Him and obey His directives.
"Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you." (Ephesians 3:20 TPT)
God always has a plan. Nothing catches Him by surprise. While we may be surprised and not know what to do, you can trust that God does and He will provide a way out when we stay connected to Him. He never meant for us to do anything apart from Him. And realistically, we can do nothing apart from Him! We were always meant to be connected to the Living Vine, Jesus Christ, in everything we do.
"I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing." (John 15:5 AMPC)
When we do it His way, we get His results. So, don't give up. Continue to stand. Gods got this and He's got you! God, who is love, "never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]." (I Corinthians 13:8a AMPC)
In the meantime, this is how you stand all the way to victory:
"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be firm (steadfast), immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord [always being superior, excelling, doing more than enough in the service of the Lord], knowing and being continually aware that your labor in the Lord is not futile [it is never wasted or to no purpose]." (1 Corinthians 15:58 AMPC)
