Perseverance has a lot to do with perspective.
Seeing things from God’s perspective changes our outlook. It takes our eyes off of the temporary, and turns them towards the transcendent.
We may not be able, in our own strength, to endure the trials of life, but our God is more than able to carry us through – and beyond – our trials.
Our circumstance may be overwhelming, but He turns our cowardice into confidence.
Place your faith and trust in Jesus, holding fast to the completed work of the cross. He overcame every trial we will ever face, so there is nothing left to fear.
