Patient Endurance

Hebrews 10:36    *Patient endurance is what you need now, so you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that He has promised.

Patient endurance is what is needed now
Patient endurance and TRUST.

God is not a man, that He should tell or act a lie, neither the son of man, that He should feel repentance or compunction [for what He has promised]. Has He said and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken and shall He not make it good? -Num 23:19 AMP

Why is this perseverance and persistence so important to the Lord?
Why is “ask and keep on asking” the pattern He prefers? -Lk 18:1
Are you at the crossroads today? Facing a faith crisis? Facing seemingly unanswered prayer?

This is what the LORD says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” -Jere 6:16

Don’t give up! Hold fast! Keep asking and
TRUST that the Lord will answer and guide in His perfect timing and way.
Do not lose heart!
His mercies are new each day for He who has promised is faithful!
These trials and tribulations are producing in us a character and hope
A treasure in a jar of clay
The fruit of patient abiding
A glory that far outweighs any trial we have to endure
A glory that is eternal.

Hold fast! Stand! Ask for and continue to do God’s will
Patiently endure
Persist and persevere.

 

You will receive ALL that He has promised
Rejoice in the hope of the glory of God!

2 Corinthians 4:7 We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

Romans 5 NKJV
Faith Triumphs in Trouble

1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 New Living Translation
For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
