12 THINGS TO REMEMBER IN 2012 (part 2)


In the battle between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins. Not because of strength but because of perseverance.

Today I continue with the series of posts on the 12 Things to Remember in 2012. To read yesterday’s post, see here (insert link). Call it persistence, perseverance, endurance, doggedness, whatever, you need it. Without it you cannot fulfill your potential and achieve success.

The Success of PERSEVERANCE
“For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:” (Hebrews 10:36)

There you have it! Nothing succeeds like perseverance. Do you feel like giving up on your dream today? Don’t! Persevere a little more. This famous quote by Calvin Coolidge (1872 -1933) 30th president of the United States sums it up quite perfectly:

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

Stick-to-itiveness is a distinguishing mark of champions in every realm of human endeavor. “You need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion.” (Hebrews 11:36, The Message)

Hear this: “But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.” (Habakkuk 2:3, New Living Translation)

Be encouraged today. Stay on your vision/assignment. Keep at it. Do it one more time till your goal is accomplished. Remember again that, in the battle between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins. Today, and always, be reminded not to quit; that perseverance wins! YOU WILL SUCCEED!
