YUPB Daily Inspiration With Rapsody of Realities

Maintain Your Focus; Don't Give Up .

Sunday, February 7th .
Pastor Chris
Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong (1 Corinthians 16:13).

God wants you to be steadfast in your walk of faith, because in due season, that is, at the right time, you'll reap a harvest, if you don't give up. As a child of God, there're unique abilities that God has placed within you. You might be at a stage in your life where you're not sure whether you should continue doing the things the Lord has committed to you, due to challenges, persecution, tests and trials. But let me tell you this: maintain your focus. Don't give up.
The Bible says if you faint in the day of adversity, if you give up, because of the troubles and challenges you're facing, then your strength is small. But your strength isn't small, because the Lord Himself is your strength. To give up in the day of trouble means you trusted in yourself. 2 Corinthians 3:5 says, "Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God." Trust Him to see you through; He's your ability.
No wonder, the Spirit of God, through the Apostle Paul, prays that you be strengthened with might (miracle-working ability) by the Spirit in your inner man. How do you strengthen your inner man? It's through the Word of God and praying in the Holy Ghost. When you spend time studying and meditating on the Word, in addition to speaking in tongues regularly, your spirit is energized with miracle-working ability. Suddenly, the whole world becomes small to you, and you see that, really, nothing is impossible to you.
When you're strengthened with divine enablement in your inner man, you become too persuaded to be dissuaded. You're like Abraham who, being fully persuaded, staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strong in faith, giving glory to God.
Dear Father, thank you for the inspiration and assurance that comes from your Word. Your grace is sufficient for me in all things, and I'm fully persuaded that my sufficiency is of you. Thank you for setting me on the course of eternal success; I triumph gloriously today and always, by the Spirit, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Further Study: || 1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. ||

|| Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) ||
