Don't just Persevere - Flourish

James 1:12 NASB
Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

Psalm 92:13
Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.

In this time of drought, this plant pushed through the cracked ground and flourishes.

And that is how the children of the Living God should appear to those in darkness. Not that we are exempt from the trials of this world, but that we overcome them by the Blood of the Lamb.

John 16:33
These things I (Jesus) have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

1 John 4:4
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Live as people of Hope. Don't look at the waves of problems that rise around, but look up knowing that He is in us and will never leave us. In Jesus, we have won eternal life, and abundant life even here on this earth.

In Jesus, we win. We will not be defeated. Let your faith shoot the cracked ground of these times and flourish.
