“But you, be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work” (2 Chronicles 15:7).
Endurance, plodding, and staying the course is an identifying quality of the people of God. It is an approach to life so focused on honoring the Lord Jesus Christ in all pursuits that it refuses to be knocked off course. Life can be lived in one of two ways. We can approach each day as a proactive pursuit of God’s destiny for our lives, or we can spend every day just reacting to the circumstances that seek to distract and discourage us. One is a witness, while the other is a waste.
