James 1:2-4 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
Romans 5:1-5 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
Oh Lord, indeed You are faithful by speaking truth into my life through Your Word. Indeed the Scriptures are a light unto my fumbling feet, and lamp unto my uncertain paths. How gratefully amazed I am, seeing Your mighty hand upon my life and glaring faithfulness in the midst of a hurricane.
Oh Lord indeed You will and have never forsaken me. You remained faithful even when I was not.
Oh Lord if You have persevered to the Cross for me, what should stop me from persevering to the ends for Your glory to be revealed on earth?
