If we are not careful, we can become accustomed to giving up and make quitting a habit, especially when it comes to the things of God. Some of the leading causes of habitually quitting are false expectations and a lack of knowledge of God and His Word. Sadly, quitting has become the norm for so many today, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Generally, when we think of winning or losing, it’s based on a scoreboard. But when it comes to life, it’s really about learning to never quit. Unfortunately, when things don’t go our way or when negative things happen, we tend to think, “This is too hard,” or, “Nothing ever works out for me.” But we have to realize, the enemy of being a winner isn’t failing--the real enemies are fear and discouragement.
We need to learn to win. A winner is one who never quits or gives up. In fact, the most successful people (winners) have one thing in common: they never quit. If only we could get this in our hearts and minds, and remember that we have God on our side and we will never lose, as long as we don’t give up or quit, then we would get in the habit of winning.
For most of us, getting in the habit of winning is learning how to keep moving forward through adversity and setbacks. Whatever your dream may be, as long as you don’t quit or give up, you will be a winner. As a result, we will see more of our hopes and dreams come to pass. With God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26), so let’s learn to win!
