Today Reminder - 02 April 2012 (Endurance)

My prayer for you for today is that you will have endurance and that God will strengthen you so that you will endure to the end, in Jesus name.

Colossians 1:11-12
We also pray that you will be strengthened with all His glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to His people, who live in the light.

Endurance. It is always funny to watch spectators, they always know more than the athletes and there are those that thinks they could do it better than the actual athlete. It is a different story going through months of preparation and then finally standing on the field to compete. The race of life is much the same. When we stand on the outside living a mild life, we are easy to find fault in the lives of those that is living for Christ, but the minute we step into the race we realise how hard it is and so many give up and just remain in between. They are mostly the ones who make the most noise with the least impact. I have seen it so many times in my own life, how easy it is to rise and fall. We climb the ladder towards God, but somewhere the enemy will find a weak step and we will fall. 

So it has become imperative that we endure and that we remain patient. It is my prayer then today for us all that we will endure through all that the enemy can throw in our way and that we will patiently hold on to God and trust that He will provide us with strength and power so that we will overcome the trials and tribulations that this life can bring and that we will be victorious so that we may be filled with joy, always thanking the Father. He has enabled us to share in the inheritance that belongs to His people, who live in the light.

Have an awesome and enduring day dear friend of Jesus.

Cheers
