The Postage Stamp

“Consider the postage stamp: its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing until it gets there.” Josh Billings
I like that a lot. As long as we don’t quit in life, we haven’t lost a thing. The potential for winning is there every single morning, as long as you don’t give up. And if something can be more true than true, this is more true for those of us who have bent the knee to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. He already has gained the victory for us. All we have to do is follow after him in the triumph car.
To not quit until we get there is an endurance thing. Holy Spirit can only teach us endurance as we endure. No fun in a way, but marvelous in another. Things become quite special when you endure for them. People become more precious than gold when you endure on their behalf. Goals reached are exhilirating when we had to endure for them.
Can I endure until I get there? If I see my Father do it with me and through me, I surely can!
I ran 22 miles this morning. My body is exhausted right now, but delighted to have done it. Endurance will have its perfect result in me. Thank You my Lord.
