Matthew 10:22 states: “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake, but he who perseveres and endures to the end will be saved.”
Joyce said God is for us, so with him, we cannot lose. But he also is teaching us, here, to persevere when we know we are right. He is teaching us to fight for what is right, even when everyone is screaming “No!” at us.
Perseverance takes a lot of strength, a lot of confidence. And that is what Joyce is trying to teach us through this devotional.

Today is Jan. 1, and I am starting anew.
Today’s reading is from Matthew 14:25-27. Jesus says, “Take courage! Stop being afraid!” Joyce asks: What are you doing with your life? Do you have a vision, do you want to do something greater?
Do I want to be like the eleven disciples who stayed on the boat, or do I want to be Peter, a water walker?
Fear has always paralyzed me, in addition to stress. I do push through fear but sometimes the small fears are worse for me than the big ones. However, this year I have a big one to think about: Wedding.
I think this year’s devotional will help me gain the confidence I need through this stressful time.
