Do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
- Hebrews 10:35-36
Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.
- Hebrews 12:1-2
Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as a son...God disciplines us for our own good, that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
- Hebrews 12:7 & 10-11
Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.
- Hebrews 13:5
Basically, he told me: "Perservere and fix your eyes on Jesus. I am disciplining you, but I will never ever leave you."
I will sleep well tonight.
