God will give you the power to endure and conquer. There is nothing too hard
for Him. He can make the crooked places straight and the rough places smooth. He
will make a way. People give up and fail when they lose hope. Adversity is
something that happens in life. It is not something we choose. In these times
God offers to hold your hand and strengthen you. He offers the comfort of His
Holy Spirit and the counsel of His words.

Proverbs 24:10 (KJV)
10If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
Your strength is not small in God. He will give you all things that pertain to life and Godliness.
Philippians 3:13 (KJV)
13Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
Leave your past behind, It does not have to be your future. Release your Yesterdays and receive your Tomorrows! Set your heart and your mind on what is ahead. Focus on how to shape your Destiny. What you mold in your heart you can hold in your hands. Faith and patience are the tools that will carve your future. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Without faith it is impossible to please God! We must believe that He is active in our lives today and that He rewards them that diligently seek Him.
Hebrews 6:12 (KJV)
12That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Hebrews 10:35 (KJV)
35Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward.
Hebrews 10:36 (KJV)
36For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
Confidence increases joy which creates strength. The Bible tells us that the joy of the Lord is our strength! Not one promise of God will fall to the ground unanswered but each one will find its mate in fulfillment.. The word of God says "He hastens His word to perform it". You are in a race and God has declared you a winner. The only way you can lose is to drop out before you cross the finish line! It is possible to do all the work and lose the prize. This does not have to happen to you. God is on your side and His promises are yours.
Luke 21:19 (KJV)
19In your patience possess ye your souls.
Your soul is your mind, will, imaginations and emotions. Winning starts in your thinking. As a man thinks in His heart so is he. What we think is determined by what we see and hear. The Lord says same measure that we use to hear is the one that will be used to measure back to us. He also says Your vision is determined by the light that is in your heart. Jesus is the light of the world and His light lives in you. You can choose to turn it on to every part of your life or to leave your heart in darkness. Where light is, life is!
1 Timothy 6:11 (KJV)
11But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
Hebrews 12:1 (KJV)
1Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
In Bible days athletes would train with heavy weights to strengthen their bodies. They would even run long distances with these weights strapped to the body. At the time of the race they would strip everything off even their clothes. They would allow nothing to compromise their concentration and focus only on the race in front of them. The race was long and as they grew tired they would not think about negative things like how they felt or who seemed to be ahead of them. They would race just as they trained. They would allow nothing to stop them from finishing.
Hebrews 12:2 (KJV)
2Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Jesus is seated at the right hand of God making intercession for us. He wants you to get the reward. He says I have come so you can have life in abundance. He is your chief coach and cheerleader. He will never give up on you and He will guide you every step of the way. He will help you and strengthen you. Just ask Him!
Romans 5:3 (KJV)
3And not only so,
but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation works patience;
This word works is better translated exercises or puts to work. Each action brings life to the next. Tribulation can be your servant instead of your master. You choose who is in charge! God in you can do all things! When you let tribulation rule, hope is decreased. It has been proven that happy people live nineteen percent longer. When we practice patience, we get experience which produces hope
Romans 5:4 (KJV)
4And patience, experience;
and experience, hope:
Romans 5:5 (KJV)
5And hope maketh not
ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost
which is given unto us.
Love never fails, fades out or becomes obsolete! God is Love. Gods' love is his gift to you
James 1:3 (KJV)
3Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
Trying here can be translated exercising. Works can be translated produces. Exercise your faith, produce patience
James 1:4 (KJV)
4But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
Romans 15:4 (KJV)
4For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Romans 8:25 (KJV)
25But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
Romans 8:26 (KJV)
26Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
The Lord Himself prays for you! The Bible says he lives forever and is seated at the right hand of God making intercession for you. The right hand is known as the place of power and favor. You are favored of God because Jesus loves you!
2 Peter 1:4 (KJV)
4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
2 Peter 1:5 (KJV)
5And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
2 Peter 1:6 (KJV)
6And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
2 Peter 1:7 (KJV)
7And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
2 Peter 1:8 (KJV)
8For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Luke 8:15 (KJV)
15But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.
Go with Gods' grace. He is for you! Jesus Is Alive and He loves you. Follow Him and you will see your future expand and multiply!
