Daily Devotional: When We’re Tempted to Quit.  1 James 1:2–12

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I can’t take this anymore, or I’m going to give up?” These phrases have the power to alter the course of our lives. Let’s take a look at three things that could be causing these feelings.

1. Satan and his demons:  We may be tempted, as a result of their involvement, to stop looking to God for solutions and instead seek our own way out. Alternatively, the enemy may attempt to divert our attention away from Jesus and toward our negative emotions. He is successful in distracting us from God if he can make us feel helpless and hopeless.

2. The entire world. Ungodly people are always willing to offer advice to believers. We need God’s wisdom to distinguish ourselves from their thinking while remaining connected enough to share God’s message of hope with them.

3. Our own skin. We have a tendency to do what feels good and is beneficial to us, but God’s way is always the best and most fulfilling.

If you’ve ever wanted to give up, you’ve most likely been swayed by one or more of these factors. But God has a good reason for allowing trials in our lives: they produce perseverance, which helps us mature as Christians. When we look at things in that light, we can actually “consider it all joy” to face difficulties (James 1:2-4).

Bible in One Year: Isaiah 31-35
