God’s Word: Acts: 17:10-15
God’s Message to me: (My interpretation of what God is saying in these verses)
What is it what causes you to “give up?” Your life is a culmination of what you have “given up on,” and what you have “stuck it out.” Looking back you will see times that you gave up on something and now you wish you would have stuck it out. There are many things you should never give up on and likewise there are many things you should give up. Never give up on loving others selflessly as you want Me to love you, on being kind, helpful, forgiving, patient and understanding. Give up on bitterness, lack of forgiveness, hateful words, cruelty, unfaithfulness, selfishness, dishonesty and immorality.
You are what you are, and where you are, because of the choices you have made. What have you held onto that has damaged your relationships with others? What have you given up that you wish you could bring back? Don’t let the emotions of the moment determine your future destiny. Consider Christ and how He lived and died, not to serve Himself—but to serve others. When choosing what to hold onto and what to give up, think of His example and you won’t go wrong. He came to earth to bless your life both now and for eternity.
You can’t turn back the clock and undo bad choices. But you have complete control of today. Don’t fret a moment over what you can’t change but determine from here on out to follow Jesus’ example and accept His total forgiveness. At times you can go back to those you have hurt and made amends. My best advice for you who have regrets and sorrows is turn to Jesus and My Word and you will find direction and peace for all your tomorrows. I will never give up on you but will not force Myself on you. My Word is My love letter to you to give you joy unspeakable and full of glory. Never give up on Me!
God’s Question: Will you let Me help you give up pain?
God’s Promise: My love is sufficient for all your pain.
My Prayer to God:
I Praise You for my decision to never give up on You.
I am Sorry to have ever wavered in my faith.
Thank You for Your faithfulness, no matter what.
Please Help Me be Your faithful witness all my life.
