365 Pocket Promises from the Bible (Day 274)
A promise about PERSEVERANCE
When you feel ready to quit
Since Christ suffered physical pain, you must arm yourselves with the same attitude he had, and be ready to suffer, too. For if you have suffered physically for Christ, you have finished with sin. 1 PETER 4:1
When God has called you to a task, you should not give up. You would not only miss the great blessings of reaching your goal, but you might also incur discipline for not trusting God to help you get there. Just because God asks you to do something doesn’t mean it will be easy. Often, the more important the task, the harder it is. If you know God is calling you to a certain task or taking you in a new direction, don’t give up just because the going gets tough. Your suffering tells you that you are headed in the right direction. Keep moving forward in faith.
How can you know when to quit and when to keep going?
