If you have become mature in your faith in Christ, you will press on, even through the hardship, struggle, and storm. You will forge the way forward, looking to Jesus the Author and Perfecter of your faith. Because everything that has happened in the past was planned by God Himself. To make you who you are now and preparing you for what is ahead.
But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that day what has been entrusted to me. 2 Timothy 1:12
Do not give up, do not give in to the woes, fears, and wickedness of this age. For the Lord will carry you through. He will not fail. Put your faith and trust firmly placed in Him. You will not fail either. But you will conquer and be victorious in all the Lord has given you.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.” 2 Chronicles 15:7
Though you may fall and stumble from time to time, the Lord your God will be right there to pick you up and strengthen you. Do not be afraid or ashamed for the Lord will use each and every problem in your life for your good and for your growth to maturity, all according to His will. So do not be weary but be strong and courageous.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
He can not fail. And will not fail you. His plans, ways, purposes, and direction for your life is perfect and He will accomplish everything He has intended.
Do not listen to anyone else’s opinions or doubt, they do not know the will of the Lord for you. But press on with full assurance and faith in the Lord. Keep pressing toward the goal, toward the prize, and the upward calling you have been given by the Lord Himself. God has a purpose, process, and plan for your life.
Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. Only let us hold true to what we have attained. Philippians 3:13-16
