Persevering To Succeed

Key Verse

“And Gideon came to Jordan, and passed over, he, and the three hundred men that were with him, faint and yet pursuing them” (Judges 8:4).

Text — Judges 8:1-5


Vince Lombardi Jr powerfully asserted: “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of perseverance.” Perseverance is sticking with things. It means being hardworking and finishing what is started, despite barriers and obstacles that arise. The pleasure received from completing tasks and projects is very important to those who are high in perseverance.

You must muster the will to overcome thoughts of giving up. Perseverance involves the voluntary continuation of a goal-directed action despite the presence of challenges, difficulties, and discouragement. Gideon and his men exemplified this virtue. In spite of their tiredness, they persevered and overcame all the challenges in their way to victory. Youths that persevere will surely achieve their goals and become successful in life. Yes, you must persevere in your studies and career, and be determined never to give up.  However, if you have not made Jesus Christ your Lord and Saviour, do it right now and He will give you the strength to persevere.


Persevere in your studies and career


Persevere in the face of difficulties of life.

Prayer for today

Lord, help me to persevere till I succeed, in Jesus’ name.
