What does the Bible say about perseverance? - Encouraging Scriptures
Perseverance is the continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition. The Bible tells us that Christians will face trials and tribulations on earth for believing in God by the wicked forces of evil. Scripture warns us of these trials and gives encouragement to persevere through the hardships of this world. "Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him." (James 1:12)
Let us seek the Lord continually, rejoicing in Him! Pray for strength and for God to help you persevere through whatever you may face. May these Bible verses about perseverance encourage and empower your spirit.
3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth. 11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.
