Life is full of setbacks, disappointments, and hard work. Many people no longer know how to keep going without faltering, and a lot of folks take the path of least resistance, But when the power of God gives us everything we need for a godly life, we have the capacity to develop perseverance. It's one of Peter's eight core character qualities, listed in 2 Peter 1:3-8. Perseverance requires trusting God, but it yields maturity. There are important steps we can take as we develop perseverance, but the entire process depends on keeping our eyes on Jesus.
