One of the keys to achieving the ultimate accuracy in archery is stabilising, holding and releasing the arrow at the optimum moment to hit the target. It is impossible to hit the target consistently if you don't hold the bow steady.
To develop this type of steadiness in archery and any area of our life takes persistence, tenacity and the effort required to do something and keep believing even when it's hard.
Learning to persevere in life and our faith is an important part of living the life God has planned for us. When we fail to hold our resolve and steadiness amidst challenges, we will be far more prone to give up, which is not something God wants for us.
He doesn't give up, remains faithful, and always says, "Keep going, keep running your race, keep believing and keep moving forward with me."
God wants you to fulfil the purpose for which He made you so that you can live the full and overflowing life He has planned and desires for you.
The Bible says that persevering in our faith produces steadfastness. When this "steadfastness has its full effect, it says it's so "that we may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." (James 1:2-4;12)
Today I encourage you to hold steady and build your resolve. God has a dream and destiny for you and will strengthen you to hold steady as you persevere until you reap a harvest. Hang in there, keep the vision before you and stay the course.
"We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised." (Hebrews 6:12 NLT)
Prayer: Lord, please strengthen and encourage me today to hold steady and persevere so that I will reap the reward at the appointed time. Thank you that I can do all things because you give me strength. In Jesus' name Amen.
