"I can do all things through him who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
What does it mean to persevere? First it means to keep going for your goal regardless of what others say. In the 2016 Hollywood movie based on a true story, 'Eddie the Eagle' , the story of Michael 'Eddie' Edwards the British Ski jumper who was told he could amount to nothing but kept on for his dream to achieve greatness becoming an Olympic ski jumper, against all odds, then participating in the 1988 Winter Olympic Games in Calgary. Yes he persevered!
You have probably heard of other stories of those who were told they would not amount to anything but went on to achieve great success. This is what it takes in a believers life, to keep 'pressing' on for the prize of our Heavenly kingdom. Don't quit. Focus ahead. Don't listen to nay sayers.
What is it you are hoping to achieve? With the right attitude and keeping your eyes on the prize you can do whatever you set your mind to. Don't be afraid to go for a seemingly impossible dream. A positive attitude goes a long way.
PRAYER: Each day brings with it new challenges. I choose to focus on the positive in order to achieve the things in life I want to do. Guide me and direct me Lord to not quit. In Jesus' name. Amen.
