The project feels enormous. Will I ever finish this?
The diagnosis is overwhelming. Will I ever be healthy again?
The addiction holds too much power. Will I ever regain self-control?
The financial struggle is exhausting. Will I ever have more than just enough?
The marriage is too difficult. Will I ever be happy?
The depression—this mental condition rules my day. Will I ever feel normal again?
“Just quit,” the enemy whispers.
“Repeat after me,” he lures, “I give up—this is too difficult.” His lips curl into a sly smile, “Besides, if you continue, you’ll only discover disappointment.”
And to this, I agree. I raise my glass and make a toast to each of us, “Here’s to quitting!”
Let’s quit self-reliance.
Let’s quit living in defeat.
Let’s quit doing it in our own strength.
Let’s quit living in fear.
Let’s quit being selfish.
Let’s quit being cynical.
Let’s quit doubting God.
Let’s quit looking for a quick fix and start focusing on what God is teaching through our circumstances.
Let’s quit worrying about disappointment, and look to His larger plan.
Let’s quit living as strays and step into our rightful place—Sons and Daughters of the King.
Just quit already!
“The moment I called out, you stepped in;
you made my life large with strength.” Psalm 138:3 MSG
Your turn. What do you need to quit?
