One of the primary keys to success in life is. . .drum roll. . .persistence. We must learn to keep on keeping on until we cross the finish line.

Perseverance is in the New Testament 32 times and its most frequently translated as:

“patience; endurance; patient waiting”

The term literally means “remaining under” or standing firm despite opposition.

In life, we will face many challenges. . .and adversities.

Human nature will want you to rationalize that other people seem to have it easier than we do. . .and in some cases, that may be right.

But the Bible says that joy is not based on an absence of difficulty but on discovering your gifts and developing them for the benefit of the Kingdom of God.

Booker T. Washington once said:

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.”

Sir Winston Churchill once said:

Before we get into this teaching. . .we think you may need 2 Timothy 2:7 in the Classic Amplified Bible as a spiritual appetizer.

2 Timothy 2:7 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

“Think over these things I am saying [understand them and grasp their application], for the Lord will grant you full insight and understanding in everything.”

Our prayer as you read this teaching is for you to have His insight and understanding on the revelation were about to share.

Did you know there are seven traditional names of Jehovah? Most people can quote the names and tell you what they mean.

There is Jehovah Jirah, Jehovah Rapha, Jehovah- nissi, Jehovah Shalom, Jehovah Ra’ah, Jehovah Tsidkenu and Jehovah Shamma.

We have been taught that these are the seven names of God. We even have songs about them but the truth is only three of these are actual names of Jehovah.

Jehovah Rapha is a name we find in Exodus 15:26 where God says:
