Learning to persevere in life, in our faith and to hold onto the dreams God has placed in our hearts is an important part of living the life God has planned for us. When we fail to persevere through difficulties, setbacks or things we may be afraid of or find challenging we can get in the mindset and habit of giving up, which is not something God wants for us.
God doesn’t give up, but remains faithful and He always says for us to keep going, keep running our race, keep believing and keep moving forward because He is with us. When we run out of strength He says He will strengthen and help us to keep going. Plus we have all of heaven cheering us on and encouraging us to keep persevering.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)
Hebrews 12:1-2 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Whatever you are facing today I encourage you to seek God for His wisdom. Clarify if what you are believing for and focusing on are things that He desires for your life. If they are, then keep going, persevere, and hold on even when it’s hard, because you will surely overcome and it will be well worth it when you do.
Prayer: Lord thank you for your strength and help today. Help me to persevere in the things you have directed me in until I reach my goal. In Jesus name amen.
