You Shall Endure

[Wednesday, September 28]

“Know that I am forming within you the fortitude to stand up to all manner of testing, says the Lord. For when you shall see the world in upheaval, so shall you stand strong and not retreat. I even call you this day a soldier that shall endure!”

Prophetic Scripture:

Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 2:3).

As much as living the Christian life is about loving God and enjoying the peace He gives, we have to remember that Christianity drafts us into an army called the army of God. Whether we want to face it or not, we are in spiritual war. The entire Bible is filled with combative discussion about the power of God defeating evil. In Matthew 10:34 Jesus said, “…I came not to send peace, but a sword.” Jesus isn’t saying He doesn’t offer peace; He is saying that when the Kingdom of God enters an atmosphere where there is darkness, conflict arises. Everywhere Jesus went He created a stir. The early apostles encountered ongoing and vehement opposition. We shouldn’t think that we will encounter less if we are truly in the Kingdom.

The Lord needs us to willingly enter the battlefield as a soldier, not just as peace-loving believers who don’t want to make waves. So even in the trials you face in your own life, you need to approach them as a soldier. While that won’t be the only angle with which you address these trials, it does need to be one of them. In everything you face, God is developing your skills specifically as a soldier, so you can withstand anything. So declare today that you shall endure!


Lord, I willingly offer myself to the heavenly spiritual battlefield. Teach me how to war against spiritual opposition and endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. I declare that I shall endure! In Jesus’ Name, amen.
