Persevering Is a Choice
Once we’ve set off, taken the first step, actually started, often the most difficult thing then is to stay the course. When “A Miracle Every Day” began, it was far from what it would become. Everything isn’t always easy, but the key is trusting Jesus, our Savior and Lord. God has placed within us this desire to bless you, to see your life change and go from glory to glory! And that’s why, more than two years after starting it, we stay the course!
Here are several keys that you might find helpful to do the same thing:
- Firmly believe that the Lord is worthy of trust and that He always fulfills His Word. If He calls you to follow and serve Him, it’s not so that you’ll fall or be led along a course of destruction and death. What He has planned for you is peace, joy, and abundant life in Christ Jesus!
- Strongly believe in the Word of God, in its power, in its efficacy. Consider this Bible verse: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (see Philippians 4:13) I can do ... a few things? I can do some things ... maybe? No ... much more! I can do ALL things. With God, it’s possible to persevere, continue on, and fully accomplish what He desires!
- Finally, believe in the effectiveness of prayer to our unshakeable, eternal God. Daily prayer will help you to persevere and go forward in the direction that God shows you.
If you need God’s help in what you’ve undertaken, you can pray this prayer right now if you’d like! “Lord, sometimes I’m weary and want to let it all go and give up. Yet I know Your will is for me to be unstoppable—to continue to progress in the direction You’re leading me, even when it becomes difficult, even when I can’t see how it’ll all turn out. With Your help, I choose to continue going forward! Thank You for Your grace and Your love. In Your name, amen!”
