My Utmost For His Highest : "The Discipline Of Spiritual Tenacity"


February 22, 2012


Be still, and know that I am God.

Psalms 46:10

Tenacity is more than endurance, it is endurance combined with the
absolute certainty that what we are looking for is going to
transpire. Tenacity is more than hanging on, which may be but the
weakness of being too afraid to fall off. Tenacity is the supreme
effort of a man refusing to believe that his hero is going to be
conquered. The greatest fear a man has is not that he will be damned,
but that Jesus Christ will be worsted, that the things He stood for -
love and justice and forgiveness and kindness among men - will not
win out in the end; the things He stands for look like
will-o'-the-wisps. Then comes the call to spiritual tenacity, not to
hang on and do nothing, but to work deliberately on the certainty
that God is not going to be worsted.

If our hopes are being disappointed just now, it means that they are
being purified. There is nothing noble the human mind has ever hoped
for or dreamed of that will not be fulfilled. One of the greatest
strains in life is the strain of waiting for God. "Because thou hast
kept the word of my patience."

Remain spiritually tenacious.
