Lately, one of the most difficult lessons I have had to learn is perseverance. I have been patient for a long while now, but it’s as if in me being patient I really need to persevere. It is wonderfully true that the Lord never changes. If indeed He were to change, I will probably be in bigger difficulty. Yet I am continually amazed about how God does things.

He trully is a magnificent God.

His words tells me in Psalm 118 vs. 24: that This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. With this new revelation I was able to overcome that helplessness that always seemed to creap in whenever I start feeling sorry for myself. Reminding myself that becasue God is bigger than anything, my circumstance/situation, I need to focus on the fact that He Created today, and my first priority / command is to rejoice in this today, then maybe tommorrow I can feel sorry for myself. But seing that everyday is a day God has created, Rejoicing in it has become my top mission.lol..

After this new revelation I was consoled with the fact that God can never forget me, because He remembers me to bless me (Psalm 115 vs. 12). I was also reminded that because I have made up my mind to rejoice in the day’s of the Lord, I am therefore commiting my ways to Him, which automatically means that I will succeed (Proverbs 16vs. 3). So with all this “ammunition” against “sorry days” I have been wining the battle of perseverance.

Finally the one that really “killed me” was when the Lord brought to my mind to go and read the book of Judges. I was so sure I knew all the stories in the bible, so when I had this urge to go study it again. I obeyed. As I read Judges chapter 4, I was reminded of the first time I read this book. Yes, it was that time I knew how it felt to be really dissappointed, and left for dead. That first time when I had to learn how to be patient. That first time the Lord spoke to me about the new things He was doing in my life (Isaiah 43 vs. 19). It’s been many years now. But the Lord still speaks. He reminded me again in Judges 4vs. 14 – That This is the day the Lord has given me dominion over my problems (I am paraphrasing now)…. Has not the Lord gone ahead of me? The moment I read this, the only words I could say was THANK YOU LORD. ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS THANK YOU LORD.

So my dear friends all is indeed well with me.

I am currently learning what it is to persevere, And not to loose hope. An important lesson I might add, and possibly the most important of my life. I’m sorry I’ve been missing in action. Will be back shortly.
