One of the great life lessons that my dad taught me was to be consistent. He taught me this more by example than by word. I watched him over decades being consistent in family, ministry, work, and anything else that he put his hand to. He taught it to me through biblical principles, “If you faint not in due season you will reap a harvest.” I have said many times, “The older I get, the smarter my dad is.” To be consistent means that you have to go forward even when you’re discouraged, when everything is going your way, when you’ve got plenty, when you’re living in lack, or even when you feel like you can’t make it another day.
He taught me the principle that delay does not mean denial. One of the fruits of the Holy Spirit is patience, which is also endurance. The Bible instructs us to endure hardship as a good soldier. You can be confident of this very thing, that “He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;” The Bible says, “Run with patience the race that is set before you.” Our society is so fast paced that it’s very hard to learn the lessons of patience. But “Those who wait on the LORD, shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31.
The race is not always to the swift but to those who just keep on running.
