You Made it This Far!
But recall the former days in which, after you were illuminated, you endured a great struggle with sufferings.
When it says, after you were illuminated, it literally means, "After you came to the light." This verse is talking about when the light of the Gospel dawned on you, when you were saved.
And what does it say? You need to recall, to remember, that after you came to Christ, you endured. You went through some battles.
I think we need to remember that. In fact, let me just encourage you today. The fact that you are reading this devotional today says something about you. Did you know there are a lot of people who were saved at the same time you were, but they are not seeking God today?
You made it through the battle! You stood fast. You might feel like you are pretty rickety and ready to keel over, but you are still seeking God! If the devil could get you, he would have gotten you already.
By God's grace you made it this far. Now is no time to quit!
