“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him” James 1:12, ESV.
If you look around you, if you consider how far you have come, if you consider time after time how God continually causes you to triumph through any situation, it is clear you are empowered to go the distance.
Like a boxing match, your fight may feel like it is going the full twelve rounds, but He won’t allow you to experience more than you can bear. He has equipped and anointed you for it. You can handle more than you think. You are more courageous that you think. Your are a lot stronger than you realize, and there is more that God has put in you than you give yourself credit for.
Jesus Christ in you, the Hope of glory, who had the strength to go the distance, lives in you. Greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world, and you are finding that out. He is right there. The King has made you more than a conqueror. You will make it through this test because the Lord has graced you, has blessed you to go the distance!
Prayer: Thank You Father that I am blessed to go the distance! I am not weak, but strong through Christ. I will not give up in the fight. Because nothing can stop him, nothing can stop me from receiving victory. I say I am already victorious! I am graced and strengthened by You, equipped with Your Spirit, and I will receive what You have promised me. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
