The Art of Not Giving Up
By Faith Magbanua, July 04, 2018 01:07 AM
How often do we doubt God?
Others will say that they have never committed such acts but for most of us including me, well, I have had my fair share of doubting moments.
But what we do not know is that there is nothing impossible to God. Everything is made by Him. However, as humans, we sometimes feel that everything is not enough, we blame ourselves whenever we do something that resulted to a bad outcome and sad to say, sometimes we also blame God.
Is it bad to blame God?
The answer is yes! And as much as I want to consider your feelings, doubting God means we have a little faith.
Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Nowadays, people always wants to see the proof before they commit to something. They are afraid to jump, to take that leap, to trust and have faith.
But we must realize that trusting God will probabaly be the best decision you'll ever do in your life.
There will come a time in our life when we will realize what Jesus wants in our lives is something far wider than what we imagined. His plans are always what is best.
A few days ago, I have experienced some slump in my life. Everything seems to be going so fast. To be honest, the speed of things occurring in just a span of days has overwhelmed me.
Sometimes, an occurrence in our life will give us jitters. It will make us feel things: some are happy and most are sad.
But we must always put our trust to God. No matter what we encounter in this life, we must never give up our faith and never give up our prayer time with God.
Not everything will go according to our plan, but God's master plan is always the best. His answer to our prayer request may come in three forms, "Yes, no and wait". However, no matter what His answer is, always remember that Jesus did not give up on us so we should also do the same.
Trials in this life will overwhelm us- that's a given. But if we put Jesus at the center of our lives, we will be courageous and strong willed because Jesus is guiding us.
We must never waver, and always think that not everything will go our way but Jesus is with us. Whatever it is that He has planned in our life, rest assured that He will never leave us nor forsake us.
So do not be afraid, take that leap of faith and you will witness God's glory.
