LISTEN NOW! In this abiding moment John, Pat and Chris share the importance of not giving in or giving up and the need to persevere. Many people today try and give up when things get tough. The Bible tells us in Hebrews 10:35-36, “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” The word of God instructs us not to throw away our faith and confidence in God but to keep it and hold on to it. The enemy does the complete opposite and does everything in his power to get us to give in and give up. If you are not clear in your vision then Satan is happy to give you one to distract you and get you to stop. However, we are encouraged to persevere; which means to persist in anything undertaken. To persevere means the need to maintain purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles, and discouragement. God has called us to live by faith; faith that perseveres. They encourage us to have a vision and to stay the course and if we don’t give up or given in our persevering faith will be rewarded by God.
