not giving up

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”

There’s plenty of wisdom in that general wisdom saying. It doesn’t take into account everything for sure. We have our limitations. The main idea is persevering in spite of problems.

That attitude is a part of genuine faith. A tenacious holding on to God in faith through prayer or listening in silence and meditating on scripture. This is especially important, even crucial when we are weak or all our feeling is gone or even seems to run contrary to our faith.

The Apostle Paul lived that out as we can see from among his last words that we have:

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

2 Timothy 4

These things are not to be taken for granted; this is not automatic in our lives. But they should be characteristic of our lives as believers, as the faithful. We may have to get help from other believers, from the church in prayer and counsel. Whatever it takes we need to have this attitude that we won’t let go, indeed that we will persevere to the end. In and through the faithfulness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
