“By your steadfastness and patient endurance you shall win the true life of your souls.”
~ Luke 21:19
A soldier trains for the battle field. Similarly a runner is trained by his coach for the race of his life. Each spends hours, months and years in training so they can win. They are willing to endure hardship, suffer and keep away from things that can shake their focus only for this purpose.
We too have a battle to fight and a race to win. It is the race for the life of our soul! During our lifetime we will have to learn a lot of things, suffer for doing what is right and keep our focus on the things that God wants so that we can win the battle for our soul.
Satan knows the true value of our soul, after all Jesus our Savior died on the cross for it! Satan will always aim to throw us off the course, but we can through our steadfastness to God and our patience during difficult times overcome these obstacles from him.
Let us not fret when there are bad and difficult times. We need to remember that even in the worst of times, God can and will work out something good for us for He said, ‘All things work together for good for those who love the Lord.”
Hold on and don’t give up! Keep trusting in the Lord and He will come through for you!
Dear Jesus, forgive me for not having the right attitude towards hardships in my life. Help me Lord to overcome and be victorious in every area of my life, Amen.
