When we are faced with difficulty we can either stand up to it or shrink back and run away from it. The Apostle Paul encouraged the early believers to persevere despite what they were going through. He told them:
“But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.” – Hebrews 10:39
Which one are you? If you are facing difficulty ask the Lord to help you persevere and get other Christians to stand alongside you.
