Perseverance

MEDITATION:

Written by Ron Lambros, contemporary pastor, speaker, teacher, and writer.  This is an excerpt from his book “All My Love, Jesus: Personal Reminders From the Heart of God.”

The strength and power needed to persevere in the Christian life are not revealed in moments of crisis by accident. They are nurtured in the quiet days of determined faith, Scripture reading, and private prayer. Then, when the moments of trial do come, we are prepared to react and overcome through the “training” which was done in secret.

Prepare your heart today for the trials that are just around the bend! Hold fast to your faith no matter the circumstance. Read God’s Word daily and hide it in your heart for the days of testing. Pray earnestly, consistently, and thankfully.  These are the keys to your success in the Christian life.

PRAYER:

From the Gelasian Sacramentary, a book of Christian liturgy, which is the oldest western liturgical book that has survived.  The book is linked to Pope Gelasius I. It was compiled near Paris around 750.

O God, by the light of your Word

you scatter the darkness of ignorance.

Increase in our hearts the power of faith

which you have given us,

that no temptations may put out the fire

your grace has caused to burn in our hearts;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
