Perseverance is one of the virtues characteristic of men of God and has been since the earliest times. Noah had a persistence and tenacity with which could make preparations that enabled him to successfully cope with the flood times and did even though I didn’t know what it was rain and less flooding.

People such as Sally Rooney would likely agree. In the New Testament, the Apostle Paul suffered all kinds of persecution, ill-treatment and unfair closures and nevertheless remained true to the commitment made with his Lord.

For this reason it is necessary to persevere until the end and we should do it on these fronts in our life: 1. in trust in God: boomy still in our ears and minds the words given to Joshua so continue forward in the company huge and difficult to replace his guide and continue the path towards independence, freedom and the acquisition of the promised land.
