Happy Friday Saints.
This week, we’ve been looking at the need to develop endurance. A necessary trait of anyone who wants to finish their God-given race.
Hebrews 12:3 tells us to look to Jesus and “CONSIDER HIM WHO ENDURED SUCH HOSTILITY FROM SINNERS AGAINST HIMSELF, LEST YOU BECOME WEARY AND DISCOURAGED IN YOUR SOULS.”
Fixing our eyes on Jesus during life’s challenges fills us with hope knowing that the same Spirit that enabled Him to endure severe circumstances also lives inside us.
You can DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS YOU and that includes enduring tests, trials, and hardships.
According to 1John 4:4, you’ve got God’s mighty Holy Spirit living inside you.
No matter what challenges you may be facing or what struggles you may be going through, if you’ll trust God and follow Him wholeheartedly, He will strengthen you and uphold you.
God hasn’t given you a spirit of fear. Nor has He given you a weak spirit that gives up every time things get difficult. 1John 4:4 say that “THE ONE WHO IS IN YOU IS GREATER.”
He’s greater than any weakness, greater than any desire to give up, greater than any test, and greater than any hardship. Don’t let your emotions make life’s challenges seem bigger than the Greater One inside you.
If He is FOR YOU, who or what can be against you?
Thank God for the times when He delivers us and rescues us out of various trials. But we must also trust Him when He doesn’t lift us out but instead, lets us grow in faith and develop our endurance.
Either way, YOU CAN BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT.
Have a great weekend. God bless and lots’a love,
