Bible Verse for Today

“Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” (James 1:12)

To persevere means to keep pushing, it means not to give up, and it means to keep going forward. Giving up can make one lose the reward of hard work in this life. Persevering is not an easy thing, it is so difficult that it involves pain, persecution, frustration, disappointment, and it could cause unrest to someone. But the Bible says, “Blessed is the man who endures”. There is always a payday if you work hard now and you work according to the will of God, you will always be rewarded.

Your reward can come from man, God can use anyone for you and God himself can reward you. For you to get this reward, you just keep pushing. Jesus told the story of the widow in the Bible who went to the judge who feared no one to avenge for her. The judge refused her many times but she didn’t give up until she was attended to.

It won’t be nice when we are doing the work of God and then we stopped in the middle of it. The crown is for those that will push it till the end, not those that will give up.

The Bible said such a person will receive the crown of life. The blessing that is attached to working hard cannot be comprehended. Paul the apostle, despite the persecution, he made one thing his focus and that’s heaven. He wanted this crown, he was focused that he kept on looking unto Jesus. In your school or your place of work, don’t give up doing good, keep working hard and success will surely locate you.
