A Call to Persevere
part 3 of 3Today, like never before, we are called to persevere. In the face of great trial, trouble, temptation, and pressure of every kind, we are called to follow God without hesitation.
Often his commands do not seem to make any practical sense. We feel like giving up. We may feel battered, worn out, tired, and inadequate. Yah’s standards seem too high! How are we to survive as believers in the onslaught? How are we to produce fruit when we are barely hanging on ourselves?
Scripture says we have a Father that will never fail us. Although we may not know what is going on, He does and He is with us!
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for Yahuwah thy Elohim he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Deuteronomy 31:6
Cast thy burden upon Yah, and He shall sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55:22
We can be confident in our hope and resolved in our mission.
In the fear of Yah is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge. Proverbs 14:26
For Yah shall be thy confidence. Proverbs 3:26
We can overcome, through His strength!
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27
But we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope. Romans 5:3-4
