Perseverance in the Kingdom

It is a law of life – perseverance always outlasts persecution.

Perseverance is probably the single most common quality of high achievers.  The longer you persevere in any endeavor, the greater the probability that something will happen in your favor.

Success in life comes through industry – dedication, commitment, patience, self-discipline, and hard work that brings positive results.

Every living thing on planet earth is designed to grow.

Humans and animals have within them an inborn need to grow and develop their full potential.

Paul said, I can do all things through Him who strengthens me…  We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

Jesus gave us the principle of success in perseverance when He said, ask and keep on asking, seek and keep on seeking, knock and keep on knocking.

Ask

Seek

Knock

The Father gives good things to those who keep asking Him.

Jesus created our humanity and knows its tendency to give up quickly, to become inconsistent and lackadaisical.

God rewards persistence! God slowly yields the good things of the kingdom and the world to those who struggle.

  • Abraham waited a hundred years before he received Isaac, the child of promise.
  • David was hunted as a criminal for 17 years before becoming king of Israel.
  • Joseph persevered through 13 years of struggles until he became second in command in Egypt.

God’s kingdom can only function in our lives to the extent we operate in faith.

Perseverance in the kingdom is dependent upon the degree to which we allow His life to dominate us.
