Gifted to persevere

 persevere“For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries…” 1 Corinthians 16:9

Sometimes God will open a door for you – an area in which you can be effective. That doesn’t mean it will always be smooth sailing; there will be opposition.

That is where both faith and faithfulness come in… the ability to persevere in what God has called us to do in spite of the obstacles in our way.

So the next time God opens a door for you, walk through it and don’t get discouraged by the opposition that comes. Persevere!

Prayer: Lord, keep me from being distracted or discouraged by the obstacles that try to hinder me from walking forward in You.
