definition: Steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
Just the sound of the word makes me feel exhausted, tell me the truth now doesn’t the thought of doing something despite difficulty just puts a bad taste in your mouth? I know it does for me.
Look a Thomas Edison for example. Now here is a man who despite constant failure finally figured out the right material for the light bulb, he didn’t give up he persevered.
Lets take that word to another level. Philippians 4:13 says “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength”
So with that thought in mind Perseverance really don’t look that bad at all. Our difficulties look like child’s play now that we grasp Christ as our strength and our success is inevitable.
This is no free pass to slack off but a call to act on who we were called to be. Will you stay in the comfort of your boat or will you heed the call and walk on water?
