Do not give up – Abraham Isac

Numbers 14:24: Caleb had a different spirit. Trusting not in our ability but in God’s ability to help us. Not blaming others for our failures. Joshua 14:10-12: Now behold, the Lord has let me live, just as He spoke, these forty-five years, from the time that the Lord spoke this word to Moses, when Israel walked in the wilderness; and now behold, I am eighty-five years old today. I am still as strong today as I was in the day Moses sent me; as my strength was then, so my strength is now, for war and for going out and coming in. Now then, give me this hill country about which the Lord spoke on that day, for you heard on that day that Anakim were there, with great fortified cities; perhaps the Lord will be with me, and I will drive them out as the Lord has spoken.” There is no retirement for a child of God. May we have the spirit of Caleb. Galatians 6:9,10: Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith. Hebrews 10:35: Do not throw away your confidence which has great reward. Hebrews 10:39: But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.

Keep your confidence. We are not of those who shrink back. Psalms 27:4: One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to meditate in His temple.

Judas Iscariot valuing money more than God. Luke 7:37,39: Standing behind Him at His feet, weeping, she began to wet His feet with her tears, and kept wiping them with the hair of her head, and kissing His feet and anointing them with the perfume. She came to show her love for Jesus. She loved Jesus so much.

Hebrews 10:38: My righteous one shall live by faith. Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you. 2 Corinthians 11:2-3: For I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy; for I betrothed you to one husband, so that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin. But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion.

God has helped me to understand my wife better and running the race with her. God has helped me to stop fighting with her.

Hebrews 4:1,2: Therefore, let us fear if, while a promise remains of entering His rest, anyone of you may seem to have come short of it. Looking at Jesus with faith. He has come to give us rest. Jesus said ‘Come to me all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest’. Hold on to the shield of faith against the fiery dart (discouragement and other darts) of the evil one.
