Right now I'm going to home cell so don't have time to complete this post but am hoping you will come back and leave your thoughts before I go any further. So comment away, I will be back in a few hours and will include what you say in the post. Have fun and may the Lord put His words in your
Already I see that this is going to be a very interesting post. I've just come back from Home Cell and guess what we discussed, Perseverance.
I have a friend who'se wife has just left him and while standing there thinking about his wife and this particular post, I could not help but think how his wife had not persevered.
Before I go too far with this, there is something I would like to say. I'm not a preached or very learned, I'm not trying to convert anyone nor am I trying to convince anyone of anything. All I'm going to do is put forth my understanding as to what "persevere with God" means to me. I do understand that this particular word holds tremendous meaning for people all over the world and I put forth my opinion with all humility. As I said, I'm not learned or anyone special. I'm just a carpenter who loves God and has tremendous respect for His word.
Two people have commented already, Child of God and Pam.
"Persevere with God", to me says: Keep going with God, don't keep on trying without Him because if we persevere with Him, He will see us through. The struggle won't be for so long, it will be over soon enough because God has brought his victory near. James only summited on Kilimanjaro because he persevered even though there were times he wanted to give up. Pam, or without God.
