Determination is a powerful quality. People with determination obtain tremendous results.
There is an inspiring story about the famous mountaineer Edmund Hillary who failed climbing Mount Everest in his first attempt. But he cried out, “Mount Everest, you beat me the first time, but I’ll beat you the next time because you’ve grown all you are going to grow… but I’m still growing!” That’s determination! And that propelled him to conquer Mount Everest the next time.
Is there anything that challenges you or tries to intimidate you? You got to conquer it with determination!
Jesus Christ was determined to go to the cross, no matter what. Peter, one of His close disciples, tried to dissuade Him. He may have had thoughts that tempted Him to give up – that may be the reason why He prayed, “Father, if it is Your will, please take this cup from Me?”. But His determination made Him conquer the challenges.
Determination is productive. It transforms cowards into champions! It makes the passive active! It awakens hope over hopeless situations!
Our God is a God of determination. Nothing can stop Him from doing what He purposed to do. And He loves to grant that quality to those who ask Him.
Decide to be a determined person. It surely pays huge rewards!
