Scripture Reading:2Co 1:9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:
Reflections: Paul recounts his story of the troubles that befell him and the other Apostles in Asia. He underscored the fact that despite the odds, they never gave up. They did this by telling themselves that even if they got killed, God could choose to raise them up from the dead. Simply put, they were involved in the business of constantly inspiring themselves. In life, until you learn like Paul and his colleagues to inspire yourself ceaselessly in the midst of trials, you will end up quitting. Keep inspiring yourself with the word of God until you make a headway in any difficult condition.
Prayer: Lord, help me through your word to get going even when the going gets tough!
Confession: I will not give up when am hard pressed in life. God is more than able to deliver me. I will keep going by inspiring myself !
