LISTEN NOW! As Greg and Pat discuss the importance of endurance and the need to go through something if you are going to be strong in the Lord. They continue to share that when a Prince is born under a King there is not much need for endurance. The same is true in America because of the amazing blessings this land possesses. However, the Bible tells us in Hebrews 10 that we should not be those who shrink back but instead be those who endure. It takes God’s grace upon your life for you to endure. What’s going on in your life is going to either make you stronger or drive you deeper in the cave of denial. They continue to discuss how you want to be able to endure but without abiding with God it is impossible to endure. They continue to share the prayer of endurance they have been praying for several years. The book of James reminds us to consider it pure joy when we face trials of many kinds. However, we must be willing to face the trial. If you are still stressing out you don’t know yet that God is in control. You need to go out deeper and farther in God. You are going to haveto press through and endure. Going through it will make you stronger. It’s a lot like building muscle. Muscle is developed by breaking it down and then it comes back stronger. They encourage us to build ourselves up in God. Don’t assume you are a disciple, check yourself. They encourage us to learn the language of the Spirit. We don’t want to be ones who shrink back, remember the four blood moons start with much struggle. Abiding with Jesus is how you build endurance.

Praying for Endurance
Father, strengthen mine and all Your Church’s spirit with endurance that we may do Your will with zeal and diligence, especially in difficult circumstances. Impart strength and endurance for fasting; that we’d live a fasted lifestyle before You, hastening Your Kingdom’s arrival and Your return. Direct our heart by the Spirit into the endurance and patience Jesus walked in.
