When the going gets tough…

Posted: June 22, 2012 in God's man, Just A Thought

Ever have the feeling that you are ready to give up? The opposing forces just seem so strong that you can’t go on? You feel like you have been beaten up so many times that you just can’t take it any more?

Check this out from the life of the Apostle Paul in Acts 14:

19 Then some Jews came from Antioch and Iconium and won the crowd over. They stoned Paul and dragged him outside the city, thinking he was dead. 20 But after the disciples had gathered around him, he got up and went back into the city. The next day he and Barnabas left for Derbe.

 After being stoned and left for dead, Paul got up and went back to his business. Paul didn’t let a little thing like being pummeled with rocks stop him in his work for the Lord.
So, what about us? What common everyday issues and situations derail us and get us off track? Perhaps we can gain some perspective for our lives. Nobody said that following Christ would be easy and often it’s not. But, when things get tough, when you want to give up, don’t talk to yourself, talk to Him. He will give you what you need to press on.
