Never, Never Quit

Posted by Al Hathaway Tuesday, September 1, 2015

I recommend that you obtain a copy of the Union Baptist Church's "The Word for you Today." It's a quarterly devotional which is designed to guide each of us through daily scripture readings. You may contact our office, 410-523-6880, to obtain your copy. Invest your early morning meditation time by reading this devotional and rest assured you are joined in the readings by like minded Christians throughout our faith community.

September 1st devotional is entitled, "Never, Never Quit." The scripture reference is, "Commite your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed." Proverbs 16:3 NLT.

I've learned in life to press on to see what the end will be when your journey is towards God. Can you distinguish between your plans for yourself and God's plans for you? It is so easy for the lines to be blurred in your mind. I clarify the difference by asking myself this simple question, "Will my actions help me or others?" If the primary beneficiary is me, then I realize I may need further prayer to discern God's plan. If the primary beneficiary is others, then I'm fairly certain God has placed this action within my spirit and if I proceed He will give me favor.

I remember all the years I've spent in school pursuing religious training and education. At first I thought it was for myself, because I desired the prestige of becoming a Doctor. As I have walked the journey, I now realize all of the hard work, long hours, and study was to be more effective in my preaching and sharing of God's word to his people. I'm so glad I didn't quit or become misdirected.

Never, never quit when you are following God's plan for your life.
