I know many of you as yet have not gotten a copy of my book “Waves of Comfort” but just to let you know this is a poem that will be in my new book Anointed with Fire, a daily devotional hopefully published this next year.
Job 11:14-15 If iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles. For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear:
Sometimes I have a very stubborn nature. As a Christian it is changed to persistence. I am forever grateful my Lord persistently encourages and guides my normally stubborn nature to align with His will for my life.
When Persistence Pays
Persistence pays, it will endure.
A persistent, good attitude finds the cure.
But when wrong, negative thoughts return within,
You need God’s Word to persistently put them away again.
Never tire of pushing bad thoughts away,
For, they too will persist day after day.
Read and study the Word of truth.
It will keep them from overcoming you.
The moment you utter a repenting prayer God forgives
You do not need to remain in sin or continue to in guilt live.
Everyone’s evil nature tries to pull down to reclaim,
But with faith intact, on your feet you remain.
Every time you persistently turn away from sin,
You are glorifying your God again.
Never tire in your efforts for the rewards are great.
You will surely see your persistence pays.
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
I set my face to do Your will, to obey Your Word. With Your help I will not turn back.
