Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. 1 CORINTHIANS 15:58, NKJV
My family and I were on our way to visit the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu, high in the Andes Mountains of Peru. From Lima we flew to Cusco, and the following morning we planned to take a train to another city called Oyantaytambo, but we soon discovered that the train going to this city had derailed the day before and was going nowhere. Immediately, we scrambled and went to plan B, discovering that we could get to Oyantaytambo by bus too. But would it get there in time for us to catch the next train? It was worth a try! We got on the bus and headed out. About a mile from Oyantaytambo, the bus stopped. We looked out the window, and about one hundred feet in front of us, an army vehicle had just stopped and army soldiers were unloading. It turns out there were some riots in the city, and the army had been called in to control the situation. We were told the bus would go no farther. Great.
The bus driver knew where we were trying to go, so he told us to get off the bus, walk back a couple hundred yards to the railroad tracks, and walk along, hoping to catch our train. We followed his advice, found the tracks» and started walking. We were very happy to discover that the train had not left yet. We boarded, and it took us to a tiny village called Aguas Caliente & From there, we boarded another bus that would take us the final leg up to the ruins. The narrow dirt road looked very dangerous and contained dozens of switchbacks to get us up this mountain. The road didn’t even have rails. After hours of travel, we finally made it to Machu Picchu.
Achieving certain things in life requires persistence. Working for GOD can be hard at times. Satan will try to discourage you, but stay strong and I no movable, and know that nothing you do for GOD is a waste of time .
