2 Corinthians 4:8-9 (Passion Translation) Though we experience every kind of pressure, we’re not crushed. At times we don’t know what to do, but quitting is not an option. 9 We are persecuted by others, but God has not forsaken us. We may be knocked down, but not out.
BUT QUITTING IS NOT AN OPTION
WE MAY BE KNOCKED DOWN, BUT NOT OUT!
Honesty, I had another thought for today, Wednesday, DAY 10 of our 21 DAY RESET, but oh, the Spirit of God compelled me to talk about GRIT today, not giving up, not quitting, not throwing in the towel! God is for you, not against you! You are the head, not the tail; you are a child of the most high God!
The NIV translation says, 8 We are hard-pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
YOU ARE NOT CRUSHED TODAY
YOU ARE NOT IN DESPAIR
YOU ARE NOT ABANDONED...that’s a WORD for someone!!!!
YOU ARE NOT STRUCK DOWN
YOU ARE NOT DESTROYED!
Let me REPEAT it again, I’m compelled to tell YOU today that you have the GRIT for today, you’re not giving up, not quitting, not throwing in the towel! God is for you, not against you! You are the head, not the tail, you are a child of the most high God!
PRAYER POINT: The schools of our region are on our prayer list for today!
PRACTICAL APPLICATION: How can you encourage someone today who feels like throwing in the towel?
