“More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,” – Romans 5:3-4
God has a plan that is divine and He is always working in our lives. It may not seem like it sometimes, but we must not be fooled to think that we are in control of our lives. We must realize that His plan will lead us to a purposeful and meaningful life, if we allow Him take complete control of our life and our will. This is not to say that we will not encounter some bumps and have some bruises from the struggles, and things will always work out. Life will not be perfect. If we have faith in the master plan He has created for us and trust that He is divinely orchestrating everything in our life; all those mistakes, bad decisions, good decisions are going to work for our good. But for it to work we have to keep moving and building endurance, and enduring as good soldiers, never giving up while reverencing God and honoring his commandments. This means fighting the enemy with a faith based consistency and persistency, knowing we will be delivered! When we press towards the mark we will receive our crown of righteousness in the end, but we must PUSH THRU!
Let’s make notes of the plan to PUSH THRU!
1. Remember God’s knows the divine plan…make sure you are communicating with him to get a clue:
(Ecclesiastes 9:11 )
2. Work past the pain of past and present hurts: (Acts 20:24)
3. Get rid of what holds you back: (Hebrews 12:1)
4. Don’t look back: (Philippians 3:14)
5. Push thru to win: (1 Corinthians 9:24-25).
6. Remember the end goal: (Matthew 24:13)
