You Can Do This - A Word of Encouragement
“So you, my son, be strong [constantly strengthened] and empowered in the grace that is [to be found only] in Christ Jesus. The things [the doctrine, the precepts, the admonitions, the sum of my ministry] which you have heard me teach in the presence of many witnesses, entrust [as a treasure] to reliable and faithful men who will also be capable and qualified to teach others. Take with me your share of hardship [passing through the difficulties which you are called to endure], like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier in active service gets entangled in the [ordinary business] affairs of civilian life; [he avoids them] so that he may please the one who enlisted him to serve. And if anyone competes as an athlete [in competitive games], he is not crowned [with the wreath of victory] unless he competes according to the rules.”
2 TIMOTHY 2:1-5
When everything is working in your favor and there are no challenges in your life, it’s easy to serve God. But when things get tough and you feel pressed from every corner, this is the very moment when the real you is revealed.
Hardships can definitely expose who we really are. This is why we have to determine to set our mind to be a survivor, finish well, and purpose to model Christ regardless of the circumstances.
It’s a conscious decision that needs to be made that you are committed and ALL IN to living out your faith. Decide you will example the love of God and you are a contender for doing the will of God. If you don’t allow anything to stop you, no matter what the enemy throws your way, you will be victorious!!!
