2 Peter 1: 5-8 For this very reason, giving all diligence, Add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, To knowledge self-control, to self-control Perseverance, to perseverance godliness, To godliness brotherly kindness, And to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, You will be neither barren nor unfruitful In the knowledge of our LORD Jesus Christ.
Through a multitude of tests, you will learn courage. It does not matter the price you pay, but at any cost you must obtain strength of character and the fortitude to endure. I would build your resources until you are able to carry unusually heavy loads and withstand intense pressures.
You will become an ambassador of the Kingdom of Heaven to whom I can assign critical missions, confident that you are equipped to fulfil them.
It will be in vain if you anticipate resting in a comfortable place. Zion is already filled with those who are at ease. No, you will find yourself put in a place of training and discipline, so that when the moments of crisis come you will not become fainthearted, and you will not be the victim of unwanted fear.
Trust My instruction in all of this, as you have in various past experiences. I am faithful and loving, and I am doing this so that you may meet the future days and not be found wanting.
