God’s love causes us to carry on despite, hardships. It remains brave, confident and courageously perseveres as contrasted with its opposite of running in frantic panic. Love never loses heart or gives up when people fail, abandon, disappoint or forsake us. It endures frustration and it does not vent it out on others. Love allows us to remain steady and bear up under trying circumstances refusing to surrender.
The power of the love of God in us causes us not to run from problems and challenges but face them head on. When we are where we are supposed to be doing what God called us to do it will take endurance to finish our course. Love that endures all things does not quit, does not say things when pressure is on, “My season is up, its time to move on;” “I need to move on with my life;” “I’m feeling led to go;” “God’s got a new level for me somewhere else;” or, “I need to go where I’m celebrated.” No, love that endures all things can stay the course.
Christianity is an endurance race not a 100 yard sprint. An endurance race requires directed energy over a longer period of time; it requires disciplined effort; it requires a continuous sustained, maintained effort and focus. Without endurance, you’ll fall under the pressure, grow weary and faint in your mind Hebrews 12:3. I guarantee you the devil will pressure you through demons directly or circumstances and people to quit. Love endures all things. Endurance means to bear up courageously under and not merely put up with adversity but remain constant until victory manifests.
We don’t endure just for the sake of enduring and gutting things out but because of the assignment God has given us or the race set before us (Hebrews 12:2) and that others may obtain this great salvation (2 Timothy 2:10). Love’s endurance is not just by natural strength but supernatural power. God not only gives miracle healings, and miracle deliverances, but also gives us miracle endurance.
Romans 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
