Dont Give Up

 
Sermon By TB Joshua

If God be with us, who can be against us? Nobody. 

Lets look at 2 Corinthians 12: 7-9. At least I be exalted above measure,by abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me. 

Concerning this things, I pleaded the God three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you. For my strength is perfect in weakness. Therefore, most gladly, I would rather boast in my infirmities that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Paul knew that his challenges were to correct him from being proud. Some of the reason we look back is because of the mistakes or the pain of the past. When we say Challenges, could be of sickness, poverty, hardship, backwardness, limitation in progress or any foolish thing.

Paul knew his challenges were to correct him from being proud or conceited. That was why he was not offended. That's why he did not look at God in a bad light. Don’t give up when God corrects you. Be encourage that God loves you enough to correct you. The more that correction, the more your greatness.

Paul knew that his challenges, the thorn in his flesh , were to correct him from being proud, arrogant, conceited. You can be sick but you sickness is not like others, but for the glory of God.

Whatever you are facing (it could be poverty or whatever) as a Christian is a way of correction. Whatever situation you are facing, whatever you challenges as a Christian, are a way of correction.
Your challenges are not meant to destroy you

You challenges may be to reform you for a better position. You challenges may to keep you for a new level of life. Your challenges may be to strengthen your desire for God.

What are your challenges? See your challenges as a reason for believing God just as you see your good times. Paul saw his challenges the thorn in his flesh, as a reason for believing God as he did his good times. 

Jacob saw his challenges as a reason for believing God just as he did his good times. Be encouraged when you are corrected by God.

Don’t give up when God corrects you. Be encouraged that God loves you enough to correct you. Honor God just as you honor Him in your good times. Honor Him in your situation. Remain silent and think about your life.

Christianity is all about RELATIONSHIP. We are not religious people. We are Christians. If you must be a Christian, you must be ready for relationship.
