God of Endurance

The other day when I was at my desk, I had to lie down – for the second time that day.

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada.  The other day when I was at my desk, I had to lie down – for the second time that day.  I was so tired of dealing with pain, and I cried I can’t do this… I don’t want to do this.  But then Romans 15 came to mind where Paul calls our Savior “the God of endurance.”  So, as I was still lying down, I whispered, “Lord, you promised you will carry to completion that which you’ve begun in me.  And right now, I need your endurance.  I need you to miraculously help me persevere.  And I want to thank you because I know you are good on your word.”  Did the pain automatically stop when I sat back up in my wheelchair?  No, but I had endurance; I could persevere.  All because I was leaning hard on the God of all endurance.  So friend, when you have hardships of your own, please know that if you want to endure, it’ll surely come when you lean hard on the Lord Jesus the God of endurance.
