“In your patience possess ye your souls” (Luke 2:19).
Your keeping on keeping on with your face set steadfastly on My face is what will preserve your life. It will preserve your sanity.
Your patience — patient endurance — perseverance — comes from your trust in Me. As you anchor your attention, your love, your faith in the fathomless depths of My love and My loving purposes, you will be able to endure all things with the fullness of the joy of My Presence. Your intimate relationship with Me, the giving of your heart, mind, and “super consciousness” to Me will extend your life and increase your quality of life. It is the “abiding in the Vine” of John 15, and the “dwelling in the secret place of the Most High” of Psalm 91. It is the true survival factor.
