Unshakeable Knowing

Kathy — I  think we sometimes mistake tenacity for faith.  Tenacious means extreme persistence; relentless or enduring.  Tenacity is awesome for getting and keeping the Word in our thinking so it can be an overriding priority in our lives, but tenacity is not faith.  Tenacity is not our goal but it is a powerful element of getting to the goal.  Our goal is faith, a confident, unshakeable knowing.  If faith becomes a matter of tenacity and strain, we’ve simply stopped short of the goal.  The mark of reaching and standing in faith is rest.
