“ There is a peace in quitting!” — A lie that comes from the devil’s pit !!!
To battle long in a season of difficulty can zap your strength & drain your energy.
When you have little fuel for the fight it is easy for the devil to convince you there is no hope & no escape from the struggle. If you are at that desperate place in some season of testing or trouble you can be tricked into thinking that it is easier to give up than to take the next step forward. Fatigue & frustration muddy our minds to the point where we make poor decisions & the unrelenting assault of the enemy can con us into hoisting the white flag of surrender.
But GOD’S Word says this : “ HE gives strength to the weary & increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired & weary, & young men stumble & fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run & not grow weary, they will walk & not faint". Isaiah. 40: 29-31
Sometimes the battle is the fiercest the closer we get to the goal line.
Stand firm ! Paul encourages us in Ephesians 6 .
When we have done all to stand …. Then stand firm! Surrender is not an option.
