PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
RECEIVE GRACE AND STRENGTH TO ENDURE TO THE END, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Endurance is the ability to go through an unpleasant or difficult situation without giving way or giving up. As long as you are fulfilling your calling as a Christian, challenges will come, difficult situations will arise. The Bible says that those that will live godly in Christ will face persecution. What do you do when problems come your way? As human beings, our tendency is to quit but the Bible encourages us to endure till the end so that we can receive the crown.
From the text above, we gather that a Christian is called to be a soldier; not just ordinary but a good soldier. A soldier is a fighter who serves in the army of his country. He often faces a lot of hardship and is exposed to countless hazards and dangers. A Christian should prepare for suffering that may come as a result of his calling. A Christian is called to a life of discipline like a soldier. He must not entangle himself with the affairs of this world. He is called to please God.
Soldiers often are taken from their homes and friends, exposed to cold or heat or storms and sometimes die in the process. If they are willing to do this for the love of their country, the Soldier of Cross should be willing to do it for his Saviour who laid down His life for him.
Beloved, what are you going through? Is it tribulation, distress, persecution, trial, famine, nakedness, peril? The Bible says in all these, we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. Always remember that the suffering of this present time cannot be compared with the joy being awaited by saints.
If however, you’re yet to surrender your life to Christ, you don’t have the inner power to sustain you in the battle of life. Surrender your life to God today and receive power of endurance to win in life.
- Father, strengthen me to overcome challenges of life, in the name of Jesus.
- I refuse to give up in the battle of life, in the name of Jesus.
- I am more than conqueror. I am not a failure; I am not a quitter, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, empower me with strength to live a life of discipline, in the name of Jesus.
- Let my life be pleasing unto You, in the name of Jesus.
- I cut myself off from worldly entanglement, in the name of Jesus.
- Grant me the grace to endure every situation or challenge that may come my way, in the name of Jesus.
