Father God, we come to You today to thank You for the endurance to finish this race called life! Endurance to love You and worship You in all circumstances. Endurance to have the heart of a servant and serve others before ourselves. Endurance to hold strong to our faith and never waver. Endurance to let our lives be a testimony to Your glory. Endurance to let all we say and do give glory to You. Love You Jesus! Amen.

DAY 201: How To Build Endurance of Faith



His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse, nor his delight in the legs of the warrior; the Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.  ~ Psalm 147: 10-11


God clearly isn't impressed with how much we can do without Him and He doesn't delight in our independence. God delights in our dependence upon His unfailing hope and our desire to stick with Him.

How to stick with God for the long haul?  Endurance.  And like training our body, we train our faith to build endurance.  How to do it?

  1. Standing up for God and believing in His truth
  2. Walking with God through steady prayer and worship
  3. Exercising your faith by serving others sacrificially
  4. Training your heart and mind through the disciplines of faith
  5. Running the marathon and going the distance with God
  6. Finishing your life strong.
