Refuse to Give Up

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (TPT) …Love never takes failure as defeat…

Beloved, there will be times when those you love will stumble and may even fall, refuse to accept these set backs as permanent shifts, but rather as momentary hiccups. Press on ahead, continuing believing and encouraging them to believe, to refuse to give up, to refuse to lose hope.

Each step and every stumble will ultimately be used for good for I use all things for good. I AM a miracle working God – never underestimate My ability to move in a situation, circumstance, or heart. Continue to lift those you love (and even those you don’t) in prayer. Ask Me to move on their behalf, contend for the miraculous – for I AM able.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (TPT) Love is large and incredibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance. Love does not traffic in shame and disrespect, nor selfishly seek its own honor. Love is not easily irritated or quick to take offense. Love joyfully celebrates honesty and finds no delight in what is wrong. Love is a safe place of shelter, for it never stops believing the best for others. Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up. Love never stops loving. It extends beyond the gift of prophecy, which eventually fades away. It is more enduring than tongues, which will one day fall silent. Love remains long after words of knowledge are forgotten.
