Perseverance       

Hebrews 10 36 2

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 10:36

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

When times are tough, when you are struggling or when things in your life seem fruitless, be patient, stay strong and don’t give up. Keep on the path God has set you on in spite of difficulty, obstacles or discouragement. Don’t lose your confidence in God or in His promises, wait patiently on the Lord because He is always on time. Don’t give up, you only fail if you quit. Continue in the will of God, finish your race strong and you will receive what He has promised, eternal life.

Grow

2 Peter 3 18

Verse of the Day:  2 Peter 3:18

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

Christianity is long-term, it’s for all eternity and like every living thing it’s a growing process. We start off as babes and grow to full maturity, we develop as we grow. Growing doesn’t mean we never fail because we will never be perfect in this world. But, we do start to see our sin and the Holy Spirit’s convictions help us to repent from them. God will continue to work on you until the day Jesus comes for His church. We must do our part too, we can’t just stay where we are today we must continue working at it so that we may grow our knowledge of God, our relationship with God and our faith in God.

 

Christ Strengthens Us

Philippians 4 13

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Christ strengthens us in everything we do. It’s not limited to spirituality. He also strengthens us in whatever areas of our life we are weak or struggling, including physical, emotional and financial battles. Changing our old ways and habits can be hard when we try to do it by our own strength and often we fail. The good news is we don’t have to do it all alone or by our own strength.  We have Jesus on our side and we “can” do all things through Christ who strengthens us. By faith Jesus lives in us and that means we have His strength in us. Give whatever you are struggling with over to Jesus and let Him be your strength and your guide.

God’s Love Never Fails

Psalm 73 26

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 73:26

My flesh and my heart may fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

We are not perfect, we make mistakes and we fall to temptations and tribulations.  No matter how much we want to do better we sometimes fail, we sometimes let God and ourselves down.  But we serve a loving God and no matter how many times we fall, He picks us up.  He continues to love us because His love never fails.  He loves us not because of who we are but because of who He is.  Although we don’t have the strength to carry on ourselves, we have strength through God who is our ever present, never failing refuge for all eternity.
