00378 - You Didn’t Come This Far To

If God has brought you this far, it’s not time to stop now. Self-development, going even deeper with God and learning new skills are all part of a positive life Journey.

You didn’t come this far to stop, fail, quit, give up or surrender. It might well be that you might have to study. You might have to decide to work on an aspect of your character. Whatever it is, do it with all of your heart. 2 Timothy 2:15 says, ‘Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a worker who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.’ (NASB)

Lord, let me always have the desire to improve myself. Amen.
