My sister, let’s endure all things.

“Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.” 2 Timothy 2:10

To endure means to bear; to sustain; to support without breaking or yielding to force or pressure. As with metals, it endures a certain degree of heat without melting. There are six areas that God’s word instructs us to endure:

Endure Hardship
“Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.” 2 Timothy 2:3

Endure God’s Discipline
“If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?” Hebrews 12:7

Endure Affliction
“But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.” 2 Timothy 4:5

Endure Temptation
“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.” James 1:12

Endure Grief
“For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.” 1 Peter 2:19

Endure Persecutions and Tribulations
“So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:” 2 Thessalonians 1:4

You may ask, how long are we to endure these things? The Lord says, “…he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” (see Matthew 24:13).

Prayer: Father God, it’s hard, but for you I will go through the storm. For you, I will endure the pain. For the people you’ve called me to reach, I’ll go through it, and with your help, I won’t break. Thank you for strengthening me to endure hardship, endure your discipline, endure afflictions, temptations, grief, persecutions and tribulations. I trust you even when it hurts. I trust you when I don’t understand. I trust you when I feel tired beyond belief. I receive your strength right now to bear this patiently as you work on my behalf. Thank you for the crown of life that’s waiting for me. Thank you God that you are my rock and my anchor. You are my salvation and I trust you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    1. Lord, I think about your word when it says should Christ suffer alone?! As the body of Christ I too must endure hardship because the body is suffering hardship, yet not alone. Father I will glory in good and bad times because Lord, you have overcome, so that in you I may have peace. Not in this world but in you Lord!
