Did you know it took Thomas Edison almost three thousand attempts to find the filament that would give us light? That wouldn’t have been easy; overcoming disappointment, starting from scratch or feeling like a failure. Without that same endurance, there may be things that we might never see come to light.
Jesus says, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33. We’re never promised an easy life, in fact, this verse assures us of the exact opposite. Jesus’ defeat of death when He rose from the dead, proves that He overcame the world. It gives us the hope and motivation to endure during those difficult times; when we feel like giving up.
When life gets hard or you feel like giving in will you have the determination to not miss out on what God wants to do in your life?
