Restoring a Life of Purity – One Day at a Time

Perseverance Builds Character

Posted by Men of Redemption on January 19, 2012


We all face challenges in our daily lives. Some of us accept them and do the very best we can. Others struggle because of the adversity involved: anguish, frustration, indecision and fear. We tend to focus on the circumstances, and quickly want to get to the end of our dilemma without interference. We all are looking for that “easy way out” of all our situations. But that’s not growing us at all. Persevering, pressing through our situations builds the character in us that we need to continue through life successfully. When we focus on the situations, the battles, the plan on how to get to what we’re after we take our focus off the one who provides the only true way of obtaining anything we desire: God! God wants us to be successful in all that we do but persevering, having a determination to press through it will strengthen us as well as prepare us for future oncoming conquests. In this life, it’s a fact that we will struggle at times but we have the choice to choose how we will face each struggle. If we’re determined to go forward and fight it to the end chances are we will success and be victorious. If we try to compromise and say things like “Okay, I’ve gone as far as I’m gonna go” we’ll never see how far we can really go. We can go a lot farther than we think we can if we learn to persevere through our trials and situations.
No matter what our struggles look like they can be overcome and we can be victorious in all things if we trust God to see us through them. Today, when you face moments of indecision, frustration or fear, ask God to give you patience and understanding to continue to move forward in the challenges before you. You might be surprised at how far you can really go. God is there. He is as close as close to us as our next breath. Trust Him today in all that you.

“Battles are won in the trenches, in the grit and grime of courageous determination; they are won day by day in the arena of life.” Charles Swindoll
