When You’re Just About To Give Up

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding—Proverbs 3:5

Have you ever gotten so tired of believing? Is there any times from your past that you’ve held onto, pigheadedly, for too long now? We all are so good at holding onto things, even after they’ve shown themselves to be negative. Sometimes these stubborn beliefs can about God. Most times they’re about other people. And sometimes they’re about us. And, sometimes, maybe it’s just time to change our minds..……

It’s not an easy thing to do,  changing our minds, changing our beliefs—but we don’t have to do it on our own. God will help, if we ask. All we must do is decide we want to change our minds—like the man who brought his son, the one who couldn’t speak, to Jesus. This man had real doubts about Jesus, and about what Jesus could do, but he decided he wanted to change his mind about those doubts . . . and he asked for help:

 “Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, ‘I believe; help my unbelief!’”

(Mark 9:24).

Changing our minds—to align our beliefs with those of God—is one way we step out of our old selves and into our new selves. It’s one way we begin to live the purpose God has planned for us.

Whats the next step?

Are you tired of being a skeptic? Are you tired of being bitter or unforgiving? Are you tired of being too hard on yourself? Something else?

The Apostle Paul told us what to do when we identify an old, worn-out belief: “Get rid of it!” Get rid of it by naming it and bringing it to God in prayer. Tell him you’re tired of being that man—hard-hearted and unbending. Tell him you’d like his help in becoming a new man. (Ephesians 4:20-24).
