Daily Devotional- Abiding to Endure
“Your eternal word, O Lord, stands firm in heaven. Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth you created. Your regulations remain true to this day, for everything serves your plans. If your instructions hadn’t sustained me with joy, I would have died in my misery. I will never forget your commandments, for by them you give me life. I am yours; rescue me! For I have worked hard at obeying your commandments. Though the wicked hide along the way to kill me, I will quietly keep my mind on your laws.” – Psalms 119:89-95
Are you abiding to endure? When we understand the difference between both words we can see what path we should take when it comes to going through trials and tribulations.The definition of enduring is continuing firm or resolute through trials and difficulties. To abide suggests acceptance without resistance or protest.
Just like the driving test, I must read His Word and accept His design for my life without resistance or protest. I must memorize it so that as I am navigating life, I know the “rules” and can follow Him without making up my own rules. I want to choose ABIDING and leave the enduring to God. He alone never changes! I will rest in abiding! I will choose to study His Word, memorize it, keep it on the tip of my tongue so as I navigate this life I can rest in His divine plan.
