My brother called me out of the blue, telling me he felt like “giving up.”
“It’s a new year,” he said, “I’m still stuck here in the same mess as last year, I feel like I can’t shake these voices, this lifestyle, this doubt. I need you to pray for me.”
How many times have I heard that familiar, “I need you to pray for me,” or “will you pray for me?”
“Sure, I’ll pray for you. I’ve been praying that God will move in your life. That you will have no peace until you come to Jesus. Surrender your life to Him!”
It doesn’t escape our minds, when we have an unsaved loved one we’re praying for, or have been praying for.
Giving up is not an option in this life
If we live another day to call “today,” we must give ourselves over to the will of God. We cannot give the enemy dominion over us; we cannot allow him to convince us to give up.
God has given us the ability to take charge of our lives and live it fully within the freedom of Christ. Without depending on Jesus, we will give up, because the world is full of troubles. In Christ, we live life fully in His freedom.
Don’t give up in your prayers today for your loved ones saved. Your prayers for your children, your prodigals, your new home; whatever you have been praying and warring for, don’t give up!
Trust God and keep fighting!
Father, help me to be strong in you. For your grace is sufficient for me. When I feel like giving up, help me to see that life without You, isn’t worth it. In Jesus name. Amen.
Today, if you have not received Salvation or you would like to rededicate your life back to Christ, say this prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins and rose to give me life. Right now, Lord, I turn from my sins opening my heart and life for You to come in. I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You for saving me. Amen.
Read the Book of John in the Bible. Find out who Christ is, and how He loves you, yes you!
