Purpose to Endure Unto the End
James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
The race is not given to the swift or unto the strong but rather unto the one that endures to the end. Quitting should not be an option for you as a Christian. Never let the devil run you off your post. We are led by the Spirit, not forced by pressure. "For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. "For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man drawback, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul." (Heb 10:36-39)
Matt 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
2 Tim 4:7- 8 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
Prayer Focus: Father I ask you for strength for the journey I face. I thank you for the victories of the past.
Verse of the Day: Phil 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Living the Word Today: Purpose: "I won't give up on God".
