‘Stay the course’ is an old phrase used in the context of warfare, meaning to pursue a goal regardless of any obstacles or criticism.
To ‘stay the course’ is to continue doing something until it is finished or until you achieve what you have planned to do.
‘And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart’ (Galatians 6:9).
God pre-ordained us for service, even before we were conceived (Ephesians 2:10; Jeremiah 1:5). It’s God’s desire that you serve your generation according to His will, before you leave this world. It is required that we serve the Lord with gladness (Psalm 100:2).
Service is your destiny! Service is giving… service is living… If you’re not serving, you’ve lost the essence of life.
Each of the trees mentioned in Jotham’s parable, (Judges 9:8-15) represents men in different capacities, accepting responsibilities in spite of their challenges and affecting their generations for God in diverse ways.
You must utilize every God-given opportunity or platform you have, for service…
The heart of service (a burning passion for good works) births diligence in you.
