Last week, I highlighted the following quote in Oswald Chambers’ devotional My Utmost for His Highest:

“Perseverance means more than just hanging on, which may be only exposing our fear of letting go and falling.
Perseverance is our supreme effort of refusing to believe that our hero is going to be conquered.”


What does this mean to you? I know what it means to me.

It means I keep holding on… to hope, to goals, to my dreams, to prayers I’m praying, yes… but more than anything, holding on to my Hero, my Savior, the only One who will never, ever be conquered. 

Because as Romans 8 tells us, we are more than conquerors through Jesus, and no matter what the highs and lows or the present or the future brings, we win because none of it can separate us from Him.

Whatever your current battle, persevere, my friend. Because your God is the unconquerable Hero.


No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  {Romans 8:37-39}
