Faith to Endure

All of us at one time or another find ourselves in a position where we have to endure. These are my personal favorite Bible verses about perseverance.

They have helped me persevere when I had lost most of my friends.

They helped me accomplish things like raising my teenage kids as a single father, of being told over 185 times that I was not the person a church was looking for in a pastor, and have helped me persevere and be faithful in the little things even through the loneliness of being single.

These perseverance verses have paid off. I have raised 3 great kids, have become the pastor of a church that loves me, and even though I am still single, I have a rich and rewarding life. I know they will help you achieve your goals as well.

Bible Verses About Perseverance to Help You Endure

Romans 5:3-4

3 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. 4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.

James 5:11

11 We give great honor to those who endure under suffering. For instance, you know about Job, a man of great endurance. You can see how the Lord was kind to him at the end, for the Lord is full of tenderness and mercy.

Revelation 3:10

10 “Because you have obeyed my command to persevere, I will protect you from the great time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world.

2 Timothy 3:10-12

Paul’s Charge to Timothy

10 But you, Timothy, certainly know what I teach, and how I live, and what my purpose in life is. You know my faith, my patience, my love, and my endurance. 11 You know how much persecution and suffering I have endured. You know all about how I was persecuted in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra—but the Lord rescued me from all of it. 12 Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

Hebrews 6:13-15

God’s Promises Bring Hope

13 For example, there was God’s promise to Abraham. Since there was no one greater to swear by, God took an oath in his own name, saying:

14 “I will certainly bless you, and I will multiply your descendants beyond number.”

15 Then Abraham waited patiently, and he received what God had promised.

2 Timothy 2:12

12 If we endure hardship, we will reign with him.

If we deny him, he will deny us.

2 Timothy 4:7-9

7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.

man reading a bibleMy Final Thoughts About Perseverance

Endurance, faithfulness, steadfastness, as you can see are synonymous with perseverance. They all mean that God will test us at times, cause us to use our faith to be strengthened and that we will go through hard times.

However, there is a promise for us if we persevere.

There is a reward.

Not only is the reward in heaven when we get there, but God will learn that He can trust us with the hard things. He can trust us with the important things. He can trust us with the things He holds most dear to His heart.

So I would just like to encourage you to read and meditate on these Bible verses and let them sink deep into your heart. You will make it to the other side.

  1. Plz keep my daughter and I in payer today as we put our prcuoies 16 year old cat to sleep around 2:30PM. Sparkle has cancer. Plz pray for those who don’t understand our pain. Praise God for those who understand the unconditional love a pet can provide. Sparkle was part of a litter our young kitten had. My beloved husband had just had a stroke that left him paralyzed for life. God provided a comfort to the family through Sparkle and his mother, Nicole: our 8 year old daughter attended a Christian school and learned the responsible of caring for animals. Her friends loved Sparkle too. They would dress the kittens up in doll clothes and push them in the doll buggy. When my husband died 9 years later Sparkle was there. When my daughter went off to college out of state and was gone for six years Sparkle became my buddy. We Praise God for a special animal. We willl miss him. We know God has a special place for Sparkle
