It takes a special kind of stubbornness to start a new thing in your life, to change the course of it. A stubbornness to keep going against the odds and swim against the current.
Life in Christ means that you are being called upon to be a pioneer.
He may be calling you to be the first in your family to break the cycle of unhealthy habits or to break the cycle of emotional or physical abuse. He may be calling you to start a new business to help people that need it or create a home unlike the one you grew up in.
He is asking you to be a pioneer.
“But you need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion. It won’t be long now, he’s on the way; he’ll show up most any minute. But anyone who is right with me thrives on loyal trust; if he cuts and runs, I won’t be very happy. But we’re not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We’ll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way.”
Hebrews 10:32-39 MSG
God is asking you to be a change-maker and to be stubborn about it.
Be stubborn about your goals but flexible about your methods.
Jesus never did a miracle the same way.
Each one was different and unique.
Be creative, use what God has given you, and fight for the change you need in your life.
Change worth having is worth fighting for.
Go ahead – be stubborn and courageous today.
