“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
Perseverance is not about being stubborn or showing dogged determination to do what is out of the will. It is not about going against the grain but rather staying true to yourself and your convictions. It’s about believing in God and trusting in His plan for your life because He knows how much you need it and how much it will help other people in their lives.
We are all conceived with ideas and dreams that can help us make a difference in this world, but only those who persevered through perseverance and have faith give birth and makes a difference in our lives. Thomas Edison’s idea of inventing the light bulb was born in an effort not to give up on his dream.
Joshua 1:9 says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” Thomas Edison. You will never know what you are capable of until you apply perseverance and determination. I am sure you have heard about the saying, ‘if I could do it, I would be great.’ Well, I am here to tell you, “Just Do It.” Start small and work your way up.
You can achieve anything you set your mind to accomplish. Because Christ in you is greater than any obstacle that may stand in your way. He has overcome all obstacles and challenges in life, so why not believe that you can? If you want to become a better person, stop thinking that you can’t. I promise you that God will help you. 1 John 4:4 says, “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”
1. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for giving me the strength to face my fears and doubts.
2. Oh Lord, I cast my burdens of life on you, come and sustain my faith in Jesus’ name. Amen.
