Hebrews 10:36 ESV
For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.
*Even though it is the devil who gives us trials, it is God who edifies us during these trying times to prepare us for the next level and provide endurance. As you grow deeper in your relationship with God, you may find that the enemy sends things to confuse or discourage you; however, never forget that behind every type of adversity is the forthcoming of a blessing...The blessing often corresponds with the adversity you are facing; therefore the greater the adversity, the bigger the blessing. Also be thankful during this time and exercise your ability to ask God what you should be learning, and observe how you are being better equipped to handle your blessing. Look at it like this: Many followers of the devil obtain great things, but lose it all because they were never prepared, equipped, or edified with the proper endurance on how to conduct themselves at that level.On the other hand, believers may experience more at times, but if guided by God, suffer less upon being rewarded and maintain their enheritance that is created to receive longevity. These gifts and blessings are suppose to continuously grow and withstand the test of time REGARDLESS to what the enemy tries to throw at you. Remember, a quick fix or a simplistic road to success can be easily snatched away, especially if you don't understand what you have... However, the grace that covers you to endure and obtain greater with God lasts a lifetime. Don't settle for taking good things in spurts, but look for ways to continue success no matter what it takes because God is with you and you have the power to endure. Remember, God wants you to have health and prosperity as your soul prospers (3 John 2); therefore, growing pains may occur, but beauty behind maturing will last a lifetime.
