No matter what you're facing today you don't have to give up.  God is on your side and He will help you face whatever you're going through.  "Fear thou not; I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." (Isaiah 41:10)  And not only will God help you, He will give you power over your situation.  Luke 10:19 says, "Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you." 

So when you're faced with trying times..."DON'T GIVE UP."
Be like Job; he faced loosing his children and all his substance in one day but he didn't give up.  He fell down on the ground, worshipped God, and said, "Naked came I out my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither:  the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away:  blessed be the name of the Lord." (Job 1:20-21)

When you're faced with pressures..."DON'T GIVE UP."
Moses was faced with pressures from the children of Israel at the Red Sea but he didn't give up.  He just told the people, "Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you today:  The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace." (Exodus 14:13-14)

When you're faced with a sickness for a long time..."DON'T GIVE UP."
Be like the lady that had the issue of blood for 12 years.  She didn't give up.  She just believed, "If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be made whole." (Mark:525-28)

So be encouraged today and "DON'T GIVE UP."  "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make away to escape, that ye may be able to bear it." (1 Corinthians 10:13)
