Consider Jesus’ Endurance

When you’re ready to give up and give in, consider Hebrews 12:2-3 and what Jesus faced for you.

The joy set before him – for which he endured the cross – was the glory of God and the fulfilling of the Father’s will. It was the mission of bringing forgiveness, salvation, and redemption to the world.

When you remember all Jesus endured, it’s not as easy to grow weary and lose heart.

What Perseverance Is

Comparing your race to others can lead to discouragement. We’re all at different stages and our lives progress at a different pace.

The good news is God never wastes a season of waiting. In the waiting, He builds perseverance. Perseverance is the ability to stay under pressure – and keep pressing on – until God finishes His work.
