Improving our Spiritual Understanding
“We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body”(2Corinthians 4:8-10)
May God give us the spirit of endurance and patience. There is a saying that there is no education like adversity. Learn to endure whatever situation you find yourself. Learn to persevere. Do NOT give up easily. Your victory is just round the corner.
Many Christians may not know that the man who wrote about two third of the New Testament, apostle Paul, wrote a large chunk of it while in prison. Instead of grumbling and murmuring, he endured and maintained the right attitude. As we go through life, let’s keep our focus on Christ and learn from Apostle Paul’s attitude:
“We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you. We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2Corinthians 4:8-18)
What about Jesus Christ Himself? Can you imagine what he went through on earth? Perhaps, this is why there is a mixture of love, joy, peace, long suffering etc within the fruit of the Spirit( Galatians 5:22).
Jesus Himself gave us the Parable of the persistent widow to learn from in Luke 18:1-8.
Learn to endure. Do not give up easily because you are facing challenges. If you fail the first time, try the second time; try the third time, try the 4th, and don’t stop trying until your victory has come. There is no failure in Christ Jesus.

Dear Father, we pray for everyone sincerely connected to your Word, that you give us the grace of endurance in Jesus name. Amen.
