Here are 7 Bible truths to increase your faith and offer you hope when you want to give up:

Truth One – Galatians 6:9

There are days that all of us grow weary and feel exhausted. Life can take it’s toll and cause us to lose heart.

What are we to do when we want to quit?
Press on!!
Don’t lose heart!!
Do the very next thing!!
Keep moving on!!
Just keep swimming!!

DO NOT GIVE UP!!

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)

Today is NOT the day to quit! Try to just take one small step, make one positive decision, or complete one small task. That is how you keep from quitting!

Truth Two – Isaiah 50:7

In Isaiah 50:7, our Messiah speaks, “For the Lord God will help Me; Therefore I will not be disgraced; Therefore I have set My face like a flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed.” (Isaiah 50:7, NKJV)

In Luke 9:51, it is said of Jesus, “He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem.”

What a model of determination for us!

-When God calls you to something, SET YOUR FACE LIKE A FLINT to do it!

-If God has led you in a particular way, steadfastly SET YOUR FACE to complete this thing!

Don’t Quit!
Keep going!
Don’t give up!

Sometimes this world starts breaking me down
I get so lost I think I’ll never be found
And there are moments of fear and doubt
Even the best fall to the ground

I am a mess, I am a wrecking ball
I must confess that I still don’t get it all
Lord, I believe that all Your words are true
Doesn’t matter where I’m going if I’m going with You
I press on, I press on, I press on
When I still don’t get it

(Lyrics from Press On, Building 429)

Truth Six – 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

There are certain Bible verses that offer such incredible perspective on life. Today’s text is one of them. I pray you will read and be encouraged!

“So we’re not giving up. How could we!

Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace.

These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us.

There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.”
(2 Corinthians 4:16-18, MSG)

“If you are walking in darkness, without a ray of light, trust in the Lord and rely on your God.” (Isaiah 50:10, NLT)
