Many people give up far too easily when things don’t go their way or they face some kind of adversity. Instead of persevering, they get all bent out of shape. Before long they are down and discouraged. That’s understandable. Especially when we’ve struggled with a problem or a weakness for a long time, it’s not unusual to come to a place where we acquiesce.

But if you want to live your best life, you have to be determined to find strength through adversity. Our attitude should be: I may have been knocked down a few times in life, but I am not going to stay down; I am determined to live in victory. I’m determined I’m going to have a good marriage. I’m determined I’m going to work my way out of these problems.

We all face challenges in life. We all have things that come against us. We may get knocked down on the inside, but the key to living in victory is to learn how to get up on the inside.

Sometimes our circumstances may force us to sit down for a while, but we must not stay down. Even when we are sitting down on the outside, we must see ourselves as standing on the inside.

Don’t give up! Keep standing; keep praying; keep believing; keep hoping in faith. Payday is coming!

Maybe you work around people who are always putting you down, mistreating you, trying to make you feel badly about yourself. Let that trash go in one ear and out the other. They may try to knock you down on the outside, but they can’t knock you down on the inside. Don’t let those people steal your joy. Don’t let that problem or adversity cause you to become discouraged or depressed. Just keep standing up on the inside.

As Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of wheel-chair bound President Franklin D. Roosevelt, often said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

No matter what you are going through or how difficult it may seem, you can stay standing on the inside. It will take courage; it will definitely take determination, but you can do it if you decide to do so. You must act on your will, not simply your emotions.
