Today’s Word: Endure
You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 2 Timothy 2:3
When Battles Arise:
Some Christians and Non-Christians may think that once you become followers of Christ everything will be perfect, but nothing can be further from the truth. It almost seems that once we do decide to walk with Christ, there are more battles to face. But we know that for every battle that will arise, God will arm us with strength which will enable us to endure whatever hardship the enemy throws at us.
The meaning for endure is to suffer without yielding; or to suffer patiently. This can be very hard to do when you’re the one in the fire. It’s the worse thing to be sick and there is nothing anyone can do to help you. It’s at times like these, that you will want to turn your attention to Jehovah and to keep crying to Him, praying and asking Him for the strength that will help you to endure mentally or physically. This doesn’t mean that you will not do everything in your own power to help yourself, BUT—also do not discount relying on Jehovah. He really does have the power to move mountains.
It really is a shame, but often times when I’m at my weakest, that is when I’m the closest to God. Most times after I’ve done everything to try and help myself, and nothing works, then I turn everything over to Him and just leave it in His hands. However, after many times of turning to God at the end, I’m finally learning to give it to Him from the beginning. When this happens, there will be less stress, less, worries and less anxieties.
Endure, endure, endure, never give up and never give in. Believe and trust that God will lift you up and carry you. To believe otherwise is to give in to the enemy. It’s also easier to endure if you are a believer. Yes, we know that God is love, but a time is also coming when His wrath will be meted out, and for those that do not believe, they will not be able to endure. How do I know this? God’s word tells us what will happen, and we have to believe that if He says it will happen, it will eventually come to pass.
But the Lord is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth will tremble, And the nations will not be able to endure His indignation. Jeremiah 10:10
For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise: Hebrews 10:36
