DON'T GIVE UP, GET UP!
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*DON'T GIVE UP, GET UP!*
Philippians 1:21 *For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Job 14:14 *If a man die, shall he live again?....."*
Before you die, make sure you live.
Thinking of giving up on life or killing oneself cannot be gain.
Those who end up killing themselves lose eternal life.
People assist themselves to early death.
Assisted suicide are in form of accident, hanging oneself, shooting or embarking on life threatening and daring escapades.
No one will leave this world alive so it is not worth the while hastening to leave earlier than when God appointed for us, Heb 9:27.
Eccl 7:17 asks ,*"....why should you die before your time?*
Do not give up.
There are people who were totally written off in the scriptures, whom God brought back to recognition. Mephiboseth had gone into oblivion but God brought him to remembrance, 2 Sam 9:11.
Before you think of giving up, get up, let God and you will live.
Before you die, make sure you live by giving yourself hope that it shall be well with you.
Solomon admonishes us saying we should find satisfaction in all we do.
On life, he says in Eccl 5:18-19 *This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them—for this is their lot.*
*Moreover, when God gives someone wealth and possessions, and the ability to enjoy them, to accept their lot and be happy in their toil—this is a gift of God.*
Going by what he says in v19 that God gives some wealth, you ought to believe you can be one of these people whom God will give wealth.
We still have the same God who overturned the curse on Jabez's life, 1 Chro 4:9-10.
Do not take your own life. Your life should not end until God decides to end it. If God woke you up this morning, He has a reason for it. You are not a mistake or a misfit or a failure as you think because God is none of this. You are created in His image, Gen 1:26-27.
There is a saying that goes "though l do not know tomorrow but l know the One who holds tomorrow."
With God, nothing shall be impossible, Luke 1:37.
Nothing is hard for God. Believe, your own cannot be impossible with God.
God has not given up on you therefore do not give up on yourself. He has not finished with you, He is not done with you.
Do not give up, get up!
*Call to Word action.*
Job 14:14 *If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
You can only know your now, you do not know your next. Do not give up on life, you do not own it, God gave it, it is a gift.
Lord, help me to patiently wait till my time of Divine intervention comes in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
