Perseverance




2 Peter 1:6  New International Version (NIV)

and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;

I am currently a temp at a company and they are facing changes, the winds of change are rising up some standards for some and not for others.



Listening to them talk about their situation I feel sympathetic towards them but I can also see God’s hand at work in each one’s lives.  The person I really think has persevered is a lady that really went the extra mile and after a number of years she now faces the chance of being promoted.

It is clear to me that she persevered and God saw her heart and realized her dream of being promoted.  How awesome is our God, He promotes each of us as He sees fit.  It sad the others are angry and feeling resentment but they didn’t worry about her while they were moving up in life.  Now it’s through her perseverance that she finally is being rewarded for a job well done.

To describe her I want to refer to the above passage, ‘to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;’ this is so clear in her live.  She is a person who is self-controlled, she has persevered and she is wearing a garment of godliness.  Praise the Lord for her!

It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
