Don’t Give Up 3. God doesn’t just say what He will do, He says what He has done. Rest in the power and the capacity of God, and rest in what He has said to you because His word does not fail. As a Christian, there are two critical words that you need to understand that make your life significant as a believer, and they are Grace and Faith. Outside of grace there is no Christianity. (Ephesians 2:8NLT) (2 Corinthians 9:8 NLT)
You must understand that as a Child of God, you aren’t struggling for anything, Jesus has already paid the price. Every blessing that you need is embedded in the message of Grace.
Did you know that it is grace that ends the last phrase in the Bible?
May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s holy people. (Revelations 22:21)
As a child of God, we only live by faith, without faith, we are dead. So when we talk of not giving up, you shouldn’t give up because you have the faith of the son of God working in you. You need to understand that grace and faith are the two legs we need to stand on as believers. Grace guarantees your solid connection with God and the opportunity to collect from God. (1 Peter 5:10 AMPC). God’s grace settles you so you don’t struggle through life.
Some factors that will help you to see the fulfilment of God’s vision in your life:
- You need to understand God’s purpose for your life: Ephesians 3:20. God is able to carry out His purpose for your life. God has a purpose for your life and He has the capacity and ability to fulfil the purpose, the purpose is not yours. You need to rest in God. When you understand the purpose of God for your life, it will allow you handle problems and pressures without stress.
- For you to see God’s visions for your life fulfilled, you need to understand His promises: God will never promise you what He cannot perform. It is on the promise of God that we have the premise to fulfil your vision.
