A New Level of Perseverance for 2023
Published on: January 3, 2023

We must persevere in all things in 2023. Whether we take it up a notch in meditation, prayer, fasting, giving, warfare, worship, or even increase through our work or rest, whatever we do for His Kingdom will require more from us in the area of these 8 disciplines.  You may feel more drawn to one or two than others but just begin. Yesterday I meditated on 3 verses in Hebrews, for about 15 minutes.  I noticed a shift about half way through that time. Something deeper stirred inside.  And that was only 15 minutes. You may not notice it, or it may take longer but it is happening as we set aside this time for Jesus.

In Hebrews 1:3 in the Amplified Bible it says Jesus propels the universes forward by His mighty word of power. Then it says He accomplished the complete cleansing of our sin and guilt and He sat down. He did what He was supposed to do. That means we are to step up. We need to agree out loud with His Word in prayer and thereby come into agreement with His “guiding and propelling the universes forward,” Chew on that Scripture. This is all His plan.

“Part of practicing faith is persevering in it.” (From The Passion Translation introduction to Hebrews.) I encourage us all with this word of perseverance for 2023.
