Endurance Through Trials

SEPTEMBER 14TH, 2021      |    Day after day, week after week, then month after month until yet another year passes. Questions begin to pile on and weigh you down. How much longer? Can I still do this? What if ________? There are some battles that may enter your life for the long haul. Are you prepared to endure opposition?

Hebrews 12:2-3 (NIV) says of Jesus, “…For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” Jesus not only endured death on a cross, He was betrayed, arrested, beaten, rejected, shamed, and ridiculed. How did He do it? How did Jesus endure? He clung to faith. Remembered God’s love. 

While you may face various difficulties here on earth, you can trust in the God whose love endures forever. He can’t be shaken. Psalm 125:1 (NIV) says, “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.” God’s name and renown shall endure forever. The hardship you’re enduring right now can’t undo the faithfulness of His enduring love. Press on and count it joy.

Thank God for the opposition that Jesus endured and ask that He would give you the same endurance to face life’s challenges.

Ask God to help you see everything in your life with joy and peace, knowing that He has you anchored and unshakeable.
