The bible is not only spiritual, it’s also very practical. So much so that it covers every area of life, including the times you feel like giving up. At one point or the other, we all have. But the word got you covered. Below are a few reminders of why you should keep going:

I can do all this through him who gives me strength. – Philippians 4:13

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:10

Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. – Philippians 1:6

For God has not given the Spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. – 1 Corinthians 16:13

 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. – 1 Corinthians 9:24

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. – Galatians 6:9

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. – Ephesians 6:10
