Feb 5 - Hebrews 10:36

Patient endurance is what you need now,
so you will continue to do God's will.
Then you will receive all that he has promised.
Hebrews 10:36

Have you ever had a day (… a month? … a year?) when you needed patient endurance to do what was expected of you?

Life is often tough and demanding. Sometimes if we are going to accomplish what’s expected of us, it will absolutely require patience and endurance.

One of the things that’s expected of us is “to do God’s will.” Sometimes people have this expectation of us. Sometimes we have this expectation of ourselves. Mostly, however, this is God’s greatest desire for you.

God wants you to do his will. He knows it won’t be easy … but he also knows that it’s the only path to true blessing. The blessing that is promised here is “receiv[ing] all that God has promised.” Receiving how much? All! 100%!

But here’s the problem … because we’re weak and fail to follow through, most of us continually receive less than what God promises.

If you find yourself feeling like your life is adding up to less than you’d hoped, patient endurance is God’s prescription.

What do you know that is God calling you to do? Stick to it.

In Christ’s Love,
a guy who wants
to be stickier
