My beloved, the pressures that you are going through are bringing about My plans and purposes in your life.
I am forming Myself in your heart and mind. Do not look at and focus on your light and momentary trials, for they are forming My very nature and character in you.
Keep your eyes focused on Me and let the Holy Spirit teach and guide you in all things, even when to take those moments of rest in the midst of the business of life.
Just as I set my face as flint and endured the cross for the joy set before me, so now I say set your face to endure and to persevere, so that you too will enter into the fullness of my joy.
(NIV) Hebrews 12: 1-3
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
(NIV) James 1: 2-4
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
(NIV) Hebrews 4: 9-11
There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience.
