Don’t Give Up On God


“…how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” –Luke 11:13 NIV

Persisting: to continue steadfastly or firmly in some state, purpose, or course of action, especially in spite of opposition (Dictionary.com).

God has a plan for your life. He has called you to achieve something bigger than you can do on your own. He has given you specific talents and has placed dreams in your heart so you can achieve what He has called you to do.

In Luke 11, Jesus tells the story of a man who didn’t give up, even though the door was shut and locked to him. In verse 8, He says, “But I tell you this…if you keep knocking long enough, he will get up and give you whatever you need because of your shameless persistence.”

Jesus says, “And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened,” (Luke 11:9-10).

God knows your needs and when you seek Him you will find Him and He will give you what you need. In spite of opposition that may come your way, keep persisting to achieve all God has called you to do.

Your God sized dream will help Him to spread the good news of His love and freedom to all who need to hear it! Don’t let discouragement cause you to abandon your God sized dream.

Keep praying, keep asking and keep persisting. God will give you everything you need to accomplish all He has called you to do.
