The more tempted you are to quit, the greater the significance. Nothing I ever did in my life was I not tempted to quit, now when I am tempted to quit on something God gave me to handle, I realize that the temptation to quit is an indication of its significance.
A lot of us are addicted to quitting, you can talk about been addicted to pills, been addicted to porn, been addicted to the bottle but what about the addiction we have to quitting.
I'll tell you what that looks like, I went through a stage where in my immaturity at the first sign of conflict I would quit a friendship, that was my protective mechanism. I believe it was something that I saw modeled many times, which I believe some of that has to do with it, was how immature I was and I believed I was insecure. And so the moment that friendship would have conflict associated with it, it was easier for me to quit than to face what needed to face.
For many of us the moment a relationship starts getting really intimate, we quit getting closer and we will even design drama in order to be a defence mechanism from us really having to push past the surface and let someone see us.
I was so insecure and too immature to know that the richness of friendship or intimacy is worth the willingness to push past the insecurities and God is changing me now because I'm growing.
The funniest thing about us is we celebrate so much when someone steps out in faith to do something new, sometimes the reason we are always stepping out to something new is because we dont want to stay and really change. It may sound weird because it implies that someone who had left something that was not really true to them in order to encourage us to stay with what is really worthwhile.
When you're tempted to quit here is what happens "You only see the benefit of quitting because the devil knows how to hide the price tag, that's how it works.
" You cant quit everyone, it dosent even make sence even when you don't understand everything."
There are certain things God has protected in your life in an infant stage because he saw potential for this moment "Dont wait before you see it."
If you quit showing up, if you quit trying, here is what you can expect to experience Relief which is not freedom. So we run around quitting everything that would change us, running from everything that would revolutionize us and resisting everything God sends to grow us.
It feels like freedom but its really just temporary relief.
Sexual immorality is a temporary relief just like every other addiction out there with the price tag of permanent bondage.
You have a decision to make "Will I be identified with what I've known?" Will I be known as where I came from or will I in this moment of my life not be defined by my environment and the events that happened to me.
We give up the first time it dosent work out, we see it as no value so we quit something to appear knowledgeable rather than staying and becoming wise. If it didnt get 10 'likes' in 10minutes we delete it, I deleted a post this morning which I felt the same way and I shouldnt have.
Three word "when you feel"
"When you feel like your energy is all gone"
"when you feel mentally broken and your motivation to achieve is hard to find"
"when you feel like the clouds around you is so dark and would be impossible to ever see sunshine again"
Because to feel means you still have the opportunity to be achieving and you have power to stop the grieving. I need you to pause and recall the reasons you made the choice to invest your time. These will push you to go the extra mile.
