Endurance is one of the distinguishing and foundational mark of a true disciple of Jesus. When God calls you to discipleship, you have been marked for endurance. It is the Lord’s will that you learn to endure all things. But many give up easily, give in easily and many quit too early.
You must learn to handle frustrations and disappointments in this life with a godly perspective. The devil wants to wear you out. How far will you go in faith, commitment and in your allegiance to the King? Even God is watching how you will respond.
Bible says to do our best to enter that rest. That means you need to make sure you remain in that rest by not striving to do anything in your flesh what God has already accomplished for you.
Who is your strength or what do you rely on for strength in life? Is it people, talent, beauty, power, wealth, self-belief or some other resources? Have you made these things as idols of trust and strength? Are you sure you can count on these all the time?
The empowering grace of God will remove mountains such that barriers, obstacles before you. Then you shall perceive that it is not your might but the Lord’s Spirit working within. It is His power enabling you to go beyond your limitations. Be strong in His grace.
If you are a Christian, then you have been rescued from the kingdom of darkness ( from satan’s rule) and you have been brought into the Kingdom of light( under God’s rule). But its up to you to choose who will rule your life.
Do you feel that the devil is frustrating your spiritual life by discouraging you through various trials and temptations? Maybe you are drowning in self pity and feel more of a victim day by day. Don’t loose hope! rise up and fight.
You could be somebody who has no resources and is desperate for help right now. You have no one to help you out. Maybe you are in a very difficult position and there seems to be no way out. Pursue an intimate relationship with the Lord. Seek His strength today to face life challenges head on!
Maybe you grew up in an abusive, dysfunctional family and due to that you are struggling with low self esteem and fear. Usually when people think of confidence, they think of self-confidence. Biblical confidence is not self confidence. It is God confidence.
