In this passage, we are reminded to persevere in times of troubles. We must remember that God’s timing is not our timing. Perseverance requires patience along with prayer and reliance on God’s promises in the Bible. When we persevere, God will bless and deliver us.
Questions for further thought:
1. When have you had to persevere in the past?
2. What helped you persevere at that time?
Challenge: While waiting for our blessing, we need to be a blessing to others. Find a need to be met and meet it.
