"You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary." NIV
"And has borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted." KJV
Too often, we get burdened down under the load of this world's tribulations and they makes us incapable of carrying on the way the Lord has directed us. The true test of commitment to the Lord God is that even when our whole world seems to be crashing down around us, we stand strong, with patience and continue to follow the leading of the Lord. Nothing can distract us for our service to Him. While we are about His business, He is steadily working out our problems and we will find it was worth doing His will rather than worrying and becoming dormant for His kingdom.
Heavenly Father, we ask Your forgiveness for allowing our problems and tribulations to overpower us to the point of stopping our progress in our Christian walk. Help us to understand that if we continue to seek You and Your will for our lives, patiently working as You lead us, You will take care of all our problems. We thank You and praise You for that. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
