Those who forsake the law praise the wicked,
But those who keep the law strive with them.
Proverbs 28:4 NASB
It’s easy to throw your hands up in the air and give in sometimes. The fight to Spread the Gospel, at times, seems overwhelming, especially when you see people struggling with the same things and not following God’s ways, what He says in His Word.
But we must not give up hope. We must continue on! We need to put the Word of God, the things of God, continually out there, in front of people.
As people see the difference between the world and eternal life, they make a choice of how they want to live. They have that choice until the day they breathe their last. But you have done what you were supposed to do…dont give up…strive with them.
Striving with the lost can only be done in the power of the Holy Spirit. If you do it under your own power, you will get frustrated, discouraged and overwhelmed. But the Father has given us the Holy Spirit to help us in our weaknesses.
To give out, you need to spend time with the Lord though. The world will suck the life out of you, you will draw strength from spending time with God.
Lord, people all around us need to know You. They are lost and will die and go to hell without Your saving grace. Help us to reach out in the power of the Holy Spirit. Give us the right words at the right time to point others to You.
