Why You Will Not Quit

Episode 164: Why You Will Not Quit One of the greatest prophets in the Old Testament, Jeremiah, once declared that he felt like quitting on God. Yet, the fire in Jeremiah’s bones refused to let him go silent. The great Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 1:8-10 that things got so heavy for him that he despaired of going on living. These men were not snowflakes…and yet they hit a wall in life and faith at one point. There is an obscure verse in the Book of Isaiah that reveals the heart of God toward those who are discouraged, weak, exhausted, and overwhelmed. You may be surprised at what He says to them (us!). Today’s podcast is highly pastoral in nature, ministering to that part of us that is, without denial, weak. How can we expect God to bless when we have zero to offer Him? This verse from Isaiah reveals that we often have a deep flaw in our understanding of what it means to live victoriously, strongly, and consistently for the glory of God.
