Don't Quit!

This is a devotional derived from the Purpose Driven Life Devotional; I thought it was so good, I had to post it here. It may get hard...but Don't Quit!

Don't Quit.

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you
will receive what he has promised. For in just a very little while,
He who is coming will come and will not delay.
Hebrews 10:36-37

If you're discouraged because of God's delay in answering your
prayers, understand the delay is NOT a denial. Just because the answer
or the miracle hasn't come yet that doesn't mean God isn't
going to answer or that he's forgotten you or that he doesn't care
about you. It simply means not yet!

Spiritual maturity is knowing the difference between no and
not yet, between a denial and a delay. The Bible tells us,
He who is coming will come and will not delay.

The delay may be a test of your patience. Anybody can be patient once.
And, anybody can be patient twice. And, just about anybody can be
patient three times. So God tests you patience over and over and over.

Why? To see how patient you are?

No, he does it to show you how patient you are. So you'll know
what's inside of you, and you*ll be able to know your level of
commitment. God tests you so that you can know he is faithful, even if
the answers you seek are delayed.

If you're discouraged, turn it around by remembering God teaches you
patience during delay. Ask him to transform your discouragement into

You may be going through difficult times right now and feel like
dropping off the planet. You're discouraged because the situation you
face seems unmanageable, unreasonable, or unfair.

It may seem unbearable and inside you're basically saying, God, I
can't take it anymore. I just can*t take it anymore!

But you can.

You can stay with it longer because God is with you. He*ll enable you
to press on. Remember, you are never a failure until you quit.

Don't quit. Resist discouragement and finish the race God has set
before you.
