Three Winning Words "Never Give Up"

When you refuse to give up, then you can never be defeated.

I love reading about people who beat the odds. I love reading about people who were told they would never amount to anything, and they proved everyone wrong.

You'll find that among all successful people, there is a common thread. They had to determine that they would never give up.

Calvin Coolidge once made this statement: "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence."

Helen Keller once said, "You can do anything you want to do if you stick to it long enough."

Babe Ruth once said, "You can't beat the person who never gives up."

You have to understand that refusing to give up was not some kind of inherited character trait that was in me. I was a quitter before I came to Jesus.

I read a scripture that changed my life forever. It said,  "If you continue in My word, you shall be my disciples indeed, and you'll know the truth, and the truth will  make you free."

The word "continue" jumped out of my Bible. I thought right then. Dear lord. I have never continued anything in my life! I have started a lot of things, business, blogs, relationships but I have never continued anything.

I realized it was a missing ingredient in my life. If I was even  going to be successful at anything in my life, then I was going to have to learn the art of continuing.

If I was going to be successful in my walk of faith, in the ministry, in my football career, in my blogging career, in my business, as a husband, a father, or any endeavor, then I was going to have to stop quitting.

Someone once said, "The biggest obstacle between you and your success is a lack of total commitment."

Someone else said, "Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after  others let go." That's what success is all about.

Galatians 6:9 says, And let us not be weary in well being for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Weary means worn out from exertion; tired; fatigued.

You find that people who determine in their that they're never going to give up are the ones that God blesses. God is not a respecter of persons.

He wants everybody to be extremely successful. But you have to obey His word as He has already stated, there are people who are more blessed than others.

Its simply because the determined that they were never going to give up.

No matter what they go through, no matter what kind of adversity they experience, they just declare, "I'm going to stand, and having done all to stand, I'm going to stand some more.

And when the dust settles, God and  I will still be standing."

In Hebrew 11, we find what many people call the "Hall of Fame of Faith Folks" in the Old Testament, and you'll notice this common thread among them.

They refused to give up
 Hebrew 11:33-34 says, who through faith subdued kingdoms through righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouth of lions, Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out  of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

Now notice the phrase waxed valiant in fight. In the Amplified it says...they became stalwart, even mighty and resistless in  battle.

Stalwart means resolute, determined, unwavering, and uncompromising.

These are all characteristics of people who become extremely successful and extremely blessed in life.

1. You have to become resolute. When you're resolute, you don't compromise. You can count on it, there will be opportunities for you to back off, but you just refuse to  be moved.

2. You have to be determined. Not enough people are determined to win. There are a lot of people trying, but they're not determined.
You cannot try to live by faith. Trying won't get it. When you say, "I'm going to try," what devil heard you say was "I'm not committed. Create a few barriers or a few obstacles and you'll probably quit.

3. You must become unwavering and uncompromising. Walking by faith and becoming uncompromising are linked together.

You can't walk by faith and be a compromiser. You've got to stand fast until you win.
Winners are rarely discouraged. Winners seldom walk around with their heads down in depression.

They may have concerns, they may even experience doubt from time to time, but it doesn't last very long.

The winner may wonder, "Dear God, what are we going to do?" But then in a few moments, he casts down those imaginations, and he comes roaring back with the word of God.
Adversity brings something out of the winner that losers never experience, and that's courage.

The courage to stand. The courage to hang on when others let go.

Courage causes the winner to face anything and everything that Satan can dish out and yet refuse to give up.

There's hope for you today if you'll make up your mind to never give up.

Begin to confess: "I am resolute. I am determined. I am unwavering. I am uncompromising. Quitting is no longer an option in my life."

When you're on the brink of a breakthrough, the pressure always intensifies.

When you've got more pressure on you than you think you can handle, that's always an indication that your breakthrough is at hand.

Set your face like flint and refuse to quit. Stay committed.

Commitment builds spiritual and mental toughness. It makes you to persevere no matter how impossible your circumstances may be.

When you've done all you know to do, and it looks like nothing is working, then remember this: The anointing of God is in you, and the anointing will get you over every time.

If you are to win, then its up to you. You are accountable for your failure or your success.
Now start thinking, talking and acting like a winner. Winning is your destiny.
