Focus Endurance (2 Cor 12:9; Jam 1:12; Rom 3:3-5)
Endurance is training your body to naturally press on in the face of ANY opposition or defeat! If one is to learn endurance, by definition, one must go through hardship, be tested. Muscle cannot strengthen unless it is put under resistance. So faith is connected to endurance in the presence of resistance. This means that resistance is a necessary quality in the life of each Christian. Depression come in when we see defeat as final. Failure is only failure when we cease to try. So the solution is to fail forward in a defeat by getting up and failing again until the goal is achieved. Forget the naysayers, train your faith to take charge and focus on your goal powered by your source of power in Jesus!
