ENDURE HARDSHIP WITH HOPE!
You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 2:3).
Apostle Paul admonished Timothy his beloved son in the Lord to endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. A soldier is trained to be toughed and endured hardship. He does not live and do things like a civilian because of his training. The Bible tells us in 2 Peter 1:5-6, it says, “But also for this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness.” The word, “Perseverance” is the synonym of endurance. In fact, endurance is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit which every Christian is expected to have and continue to add to it.
Every Christian is expected to endure hardship, challenges and difficulties; knowing fully well that God is with him and the end shall be brighter and better than the beginning. He is supposed to endure hardship with hope. But without hope, his endurance is useless and in vain. No wonder the Bible tells us in Psalm 30:5b, “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” No matter what you are going through in your life, endure it; and you should never give up because the Lord is with you and He will surely see you through. There is always a light at the end of every tourney. Have faith in God and with Him nothing is impossible in life.
In the book of Proverbs 24:10 the Bible says, “If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.” God do not expect you to faint and give up in your life battles, challenges and difficulties. A quitter never wins a battle and a winner never quits. Continue to endure hardship, challenges and difficulties with hope by always looking up to God in prayer and He will surely grant you victory that will become a great testimony tomorrow. No matter the hardship, challenges and difficulties you are facing right now, endure it with hope, and learn to always look up to God in prayer and He will see you through in Jesus Christ Name! Amen.
Daily Tip: Every Christian should endure hardship with hope by always looking up to God in prayer. God is still on the throne and He will never forsake you. Shalom!
