I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
Today’s Morsel: Endurance is one of those traits of character that seems to be waning by some. Many today seem to not have the stamina to keep going in adversity or hardships. Many just seem to give up too easy. David said that even he almost quit unless he had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Endurance comes through exercise and hard work. It’s getting your mind to override your flesh when your flesh wants to give up and give in. If we renew our minds through the word of God, we will have the stamina to not only wait on God, but also to keep pressing toward the mark through the times of discouragement.
Sing: He’s coming soon, He’s coming soon, Jesus is coming soon. If we trust and never doubt He will surely bring us out. They that wait will be renewed, God will surely see us through, for He’s coming soon.
Thought For Today: Building stamina starts with developing self.
