Summary: This outline we point out from the Word 4 very special areas where we must not stop but press on to blessings, joy and victory.
The 4 Stops of Blessings!
Philippians 3:14 (KJV) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
I. Don’t stop believing.
Hebrews 10:35 (KJV) Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
A. "Understanding is the reward of faith. Therefore, seek not to understand that thou mayest believe, but believe that thou mayest understand." Augustine.
B. Just hold on, God is there and He has the great plan in His hand for you.
II. Don’t stop loving because God never stops.
A. It is natural to love them that love us, but it is supernatural to love them that hate us.
1. On the whole, God's love for us is a much safer subject to think about than our love for Him. C.S. Lewis.
2. There is nothing you can to do make God love you more! There is nothing you can do to make God love you less! His love is Unconditional, Impartial, Everlasting, Infinite, Perfect!
III. Don’t stop relying on God,
A. Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV) 5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
B. I love the words to the chorus ‘Trust and obey’
Trust and obey for there is no other way,
To be happy in Jesus is to trust and obey,
IV. Don’t stop because the best is yet to come.
Hebrews 9:28 (KJV) So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
A. I love the words ot the chorus
‘It Will Be Worth It All’
It will be worth it all
when we see Jesus!
Life’s trials will seem so small
when we see Christ.
One glimpse of his dear face,
all sorrow will erase.
So, bravely run the race
till we see Christ.
Do not stop running the race it will be worth it all one day when He returns and it will be sooner than many think..
