There comes a time in everyone’s walk with God where things seem cold, stale and distant. It feels like you are walking through the valley all alone. This is when you need to persevere.
Perseverance Is the Path Out of the Valley
Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised.
Hebrews 10:36 NLT
I love the periods where every scripture you read pops off the page and speaks volumes to your spirit. Where you see God’s fingerprints all over your life. Where you feel this deep, intimate connection with Him.
But, there is a season for everything.
Sometimes, no matter what you do, you just can’t stoke the little ember inside into a flaming passion. At these moments, it is easy to wonder what is wrong. It is easy to doubt and to worry. If you aren’t careful, you might even let yourself wander off the path and into dangerous territory.
During these spells of coolness, remember that God will not let you down. He loves you and always works all things together for the good of those who love Him.
It is exactly in these times that you need to persevere. You need to keep reading your Bible, keep meeting with other Christ Followers and, above all, keep worshiping our Lord and Savior!
Prepare for the Breakthrough
But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing. James 1:25 ESV
As you persist even when you don’t feel like it, God will respond. He will lead you out of the valley. He will take you high on the mountain. Now is the time to prepare for the breakthrough that God has in store for you.
