Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s willed. Then you will receive all that he has promised.
Hebrews 10:36, NLT
Don’t Stop Doing the Right Thing
In the book of Genesis, Joseph was betrayed by his brothers, sold into slavery, falsely accused of a crime, and put in prison. It was thirteen years of injustice and disappointments. But he kept doing the right thing until one day he was suddenly called out of the prison to interpret Pharaoh’s dream and subsequently made the prime minister of Egypt.
God wasn’t asking Joseph to defeat his brothers, to escape his captors, to prove his innocence, or to break out of prison. God was simply asking him to outlast the opposition. All this had to happen for him to reach his destiny. God is not asking you to overcome some of the challenges you face that are unfair and seem to not be changing. He’s just asking you to outlast them. When you’ve passed the test, the promotion will come looking for you, the healing will come, the right person will find you. It’s all a part of His plan. It’s necessary to get you to your destiny; I can say God is faithful.
“My Father My Father, thank You that you don’t ask me to overcome every challenge I face, but rather to simply outlast them. Help me to have patient endurance, to accept your timing, and to rest in the fact that it’s all part of your process. I declare that you will work your good plan for my future.
