Persistence, Tenacity and Permanence

Perseverance has to do with persistence, tenacity and permanence. Proverbs days the righteous man falls seven times and gets up every time. Psalms challenges us: "If they fall, they will not stay down." To persevere doesn't mean we no longer fall. It means we always get up after falling.

It is said, that although violence robs us of our possessions , temptations challenge our minds and afflictions weight our bodies, the one that perseveres always emerges victorious; each time he passes through the fire he comes out brighter and more refined.

Why? Because God holds up the righteous. Trust the God is always walking with you and that he will take all that happens to you and make it work for your advantage and good. That is why we can persevere.

Proverbs 24:16; Psalms 37:24
