Devotional: A Call to Perseverance
Author: Rev Lydia D’Ross, Renewal Outreach Chaplin at Brookhaven Hospital, Tulsa OK
We are call to persevere in our families, our marriages, our friendship and even called to persevere in our faith.
We keep our dreams alive through perseverance. Throughout the bible there are so many scriptures how God preserved his people, and not just the people of Israel.
Nehemiah 9:6 says “Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preserve them all; and the host of heaven worship thee. ”
Why is it so important to stay in the path of perseverance? In the book of Hebrews it writes ” You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised. (10:36)
What is the will of God for you? Is it your marriage, your family, staying sober, free from addictions, your walk with God? Whatever it is, you were equipped by God to persevere!
If you are struggling and need help, call us. We are here for you!
