1 Corinthians 15:58 NIV “Stand firm. Let nothing move you…your labor…is not in vain.”
One of the most prevalent topics in the Bible is perseverance (tenacity). The apostle Paul writes: “Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” Again, he writes: “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9 NIV). And James adds: “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him” (James 1:12 NIV). What makes the difference between winning and losing is not talent; it is tenacity. Being tenacious means, you do not quit until the job is finished. You give your 100 percent commitment and energy, working with determination., and drawing strength from the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. Remember, victory is not determined until the last step in the race has been run. So, draw on God’s grace, refuse to give up, and keep going until you cross the finish line and win the prize. You can do it. God will help you.
