Endurance We All Need

Updated on September 29, 2009

"Ye have need of endurance"

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 


Galatians 6:9 NIV



Endurance we all need all the time, I think when we endure our sufferings and endure our pain, we are blessed and will be blessed when we don't give up in doing good. So many times I felt like giving up, but God in my heart won't let me, He reminds me of things, like the past where He never let me down, and even now He brings to me the gift of endurance.


en⋅dur⋅ance

  [en-door-uhns, -dyoor-] –noun1.the fact or power of enduring or bearing pain, hardships, etc.2.the ability or strength to continue or last, esp. despite fatigue, stress, or other adverse conditions; stamina: He has amazing physical endurance.3.lasting quality; duration: His friendships have little endurance.4.

something endured, as a hardship; trial.

The meaning of the word endurance is above, it says it's a noun I sometimes think of it as a verb, but if we think of it, it's the ability or strength to continue or last. To continue would be a verb a action word.


Always be ready to endure what this world continue's to give us, we must carry on. Paul faught the good fight and we can to, we can hold onto Jesus and always remember what He's done in the past, how His love keeps us strong, and His ways give us something to strive for, to strive to be like Him in all we do.

Sometimes we can see a storm or trial coming and when we do we need not panic, because Jesus will stop the storm, get us through it, and lead us down a road that is His will for us..Always keep enduring, always keep holding Jesus because He's holding you.

Do not fear what you are about to suffer... that you may be tested. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life. 

Revelation 2:10 RSV

      Very encouraging words. When facing a trial, it is always good to remember how much Jesus suffered. What we have to deal with in our lives may very well be tough, but it pales in comparison to His sufferings. He is our strength and will meet us in our time of need; He is faithful.
