    The Discipline of Spiritual Perseverance
    By Oswald Chambers

    Be still, and know that I am God… —Psalm 46:10

    Perseverance is more than endurance. It is endurance combined with absolute assurance and certainty that what we are looking for is going to happen. Perseverance means more than just hanging on, which may be only exposing our fear of letting go and falling. Perseverance is our supreme effort of refusing to believe that our hero is going to be conquered. Our greatest fear is not that we will be damned, but that somehow Jesus Christ will be defeated. Also, our fear is that the very things our Lord stood for— love, justice, forgiveness, and kindness among men— will not win out in the end and will represent an unattainable goal for us. Then there is the call to spiritual perseverance. A call not to hang on and do nothing, but to work deliberately, knowing with certainty that God will never be defeated.

    If our hopes seem to be experiencing disappointment right now, it simply means that they are being purified. Every hope or dream of the human mind will be fulfilled if it is noble and of God. But one of the greatest stresses in life is the stress of waiting for God. He brings fulfillment, “because you have kept My command to persevere…” (Revelation 3:10).

    Continue to persevere spiritually. Have a blessed day!!!

    I will love the Lord with all my heart, all my soul, and all my mind.

    A good lesson that gives assurance and peace of mind not to mention more understanding . I'm glad it started out with the word..'Perseverance' . In a work , witnessing or any way of trying to do his work we are often set back by a lot of resistance of a fallen world . To doubt or give up is failure .

    Most of GOD's plans go beyond our understanding , we are only a small part of the greater whole . That we don't get to 'see' the end result that 'we' want doesn't mean failure . We work to his glory .
    No turning back , No turning back !
