Day 183- Richmond, Virginia: Perseverance
At the end of the day, the people who are able to persevere in Christ are the ones most likely to survive during moments of conflict in life. We have a way as humans, which allow us to carry on in spite of extreme circumstances that we face. What is the force that drives us forward along on our journey? What is the desire of our hearts to fight and to keep fighting when faced with hardships that seem insurmountable on the surface? What we strive for either positively or negatively, throughout life, is usually what we achieve in the long run.
God designed us in such a way that if we have faith we can endure anything, with His divine intervention. We all have different factors that push us on and we also have our own individual reasons why we trust God or not. Our beliefs are basically the driving force towards our relationship with God. If we accept Jesus into our hearts, we will have a mind set to include Him in every thing that we do. If we do not accept the Word of God we will naturally ignore Jesus, even when He is right in front of us. The designation is equally as important as the journey, don’t we all agree?
From Revelation: “’I know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and perseverance, and that your deeds of late are greater than at first”. God is always aware of where we all come from and where we are going. There is nothing that we will do or say that He is not aware of. There is not a sin that we could commit that God cannot forgive us for. The death of Jesus on the cross lies at the center of why we are able to be forgiven for our sins. God is with us everywhere we go. If we choose to recognize Jesus in our lives, everything will fall into place as it was meant to be from the very beginning. Amen.
