WE GIVE GREAT HONOR TO THOSE WHO ENDURE UNDER SUFFERING. FOR INSTANCE, YOU KNOW ABOUT JOB, A MAN OF GREAT ENDURANCE. YOU CAN SEE HOW THE LORD WAS KIND TO HIM AT THE END, FOR THE LORD IS FULL OF TENDERNESS AND MERCY
Precious one, does your heart know how to endure? Do you understand what it means to persevere? To endure or persevere means to persist in a state or undertaking, without yielding, in spite of counterinfluences, opposition, or discouragement.
KEEP YOURSELVES IN GOD’S LOVE AS YOU WAIT FOR THE MERCY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST TO BRING YOU TO ETERNAL LIFE
Take heed. I, the Most High, want you to persist in the continuous experience of My perfect Love, in spite of the counterinfluences of the people around you, in spite of the opposition of the father-of-lies in your life, and in spite of the feelings of discouragement in your heart. My Love is permanent. My Love always perseveres. My Love never fails. I AM LOVE.
LOVE IS PATIENT AND KIND. LOVE IS NOT JEALOUS OR BOASTFUL OR PROUD OR RUDE. IT DOES NOT DEMAND ITS OWN WAY. IT IS NOT IRRITABLE, AND IT KEEPS NO RECORD OF BEING WRONGED. IT DOES NOT REJOICE ABOUT INJUSTICE BUT REJOICES WHENEVER THE TRUTH WINS OUT. LOVE NEVER GIVES UP, NEVER LOSES FAITH, IS ALWAYS HOPEFUL, AND ENDURES THROUGH EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE
GOD IS LOVE
(1 Corinthians 13:4-7 and 1 John 4:8).
Child, keep yourself in the continuous state of My Love when things go wrong in your life. Persist in the permanent state of My Love as you wait for Jesus Christ, My Son, to bring you more and more into Me—the Source of eternal Life. Then, you will never give up, even when your heart feels a bit discouraged. Then, you will never lose faith, even when people fail you. Then, you will endure through every circumstance, even when the father-of-lies tells you that you are unwanted, unloved, unworthy, or unacceptable.
What has the father-of-lies told you that is making it so hard for you to feel loved during negative, opposing circumstances?
Only God can teach you to stay in the continuous state of His perfect Love. Only God’s continuous, living Presence will allow you to experience His perfect Love, in spite of daily counterinfluences, opposition, and discouragement. Ask Him for it.
PRAYER: Most High, bring me to the perfect place where I will experience Your Love, at all times, no matter the opposition, counterinfluences, or discouragement.
Maintain an Awareness
Discipline, the training to enter God’s Holiness, cannot be exercised AFTER we have already entered a route of escape to resort to a sinful solution.
