Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop!

Here is a Declaration of Truth I say over my life:

No matter what happens to me, or who goes with me, I can’t stop and I won’t stop following Jesus.

Truth statements have become one of the key spiritual disciplines which help me replace the lies of the enemy with the Truth of God’s Word. Every one of my declarations is rooted in Scripture:

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:1 Therefore, since God in his mercy has given us this new way, we never give up.

Truth statements like these are much more than self-help or positive affirmations. Truth statements are just that…TRUTH!

Scripture tells us that the enemy is the father of lies. He uses those lies to distract us, derail us, and destroy us. The only way lies are defeated is by replacing them with Truth.

No matter what happens to me, or who goes with me, I can’t stop and I won’t stop following Jesus.

Many times in our faith it can feel as if no one else is walking the same road we are. (That’s not true by the way, it just feels that way)

Many times in ministry I can feel like no one else is listening to what I’m teaching or following my lead as the pastor. (That’s not true either, it just feels that way)

That’s why we need to be rooted in truth. Feelings lie. The Truth grounds us to God and His Word. Plus, even if NO ONE else were to continue, it is our job to never give up.

So, say it! Believe it! Live it! No matter what happens to me, or who goes with me, I can’t stop and I won’t stop following Jesus.
