God Will Help You Persevere

Feb 1, 2021, Written by Danny Myers

If you believe in New Year’s resolutions and made any this year, you may already be reaching a point where your determination is wavering. Many people have been struggling with perseverance for a year now. 

Businesses and individuals have been challenged more than ever to push through and keep moving forward. As Christians, we have the opportunity to grow a deeper connection with Christ and even show Christ to others by relying on God’s perseverance. 

Rely On God’s Perseverance 

We can’t do everything according to our own strength. 1 Chronicles 16:11 reminds us: 

“Look to the Lord and his strength;
seek his face always.”

Leaning on the Lord is one of our greatest sources of perseverance. If we remember to trust in Him, He will help us through the times we struggle and show us the good that can be gained from it. 

Help others rely on God’s perseverance by reminding them that they are not alone, and lift them up in prayer. 

Find the Good in the Struggle 

Most perseverance is not done without struggle. That is why it can be so difficult to stay determined and keep going. Struggles may also include suffering, which can make continuing on feel insurmountable. 

Using God’s strength and guidance will get us through these times and, though we might not be able to see it at the time, we may look back and see an abundance of good came from those times of struggling. 

“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.” 
– Romans 5:3-4

Build a Deeper Relationship with God

Though we might not be able to see when or how, our storms in life and business will not last forever. 

Persevering through the difficult times will help deepen our strength and understanding of God, providing us with greater endurance for the next hardship we may encounter. 

Having a deeper connection with the Lord will help us find peace, even in the midst of a storm, because we know that He is in control. 

Stay strong. Don’t lose hope. Rely on your brothers and sisters in Christ. God will help you persevere. 

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
– Romans 15:13
