Invincible Determination

Emerson wrote, “The world belongs to the energetic.”

Sir Thomas Buxton agreed when he said,

“The longer I live, the more deeply I am convinced that what makes the difference between one man and another, the great and the insignificant, is energy; that invincible determination, a purpose that once formed, nothing can take it away. This energetic quality will do anything that is meant by God to be done in this world, and no talent, no training, no opportunity, no circumstance will make any man without it.”1

“So let us hold fast without wavering the hope we cherish, and confess our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure), and faithful to His word” (Hebrews 10:23).

“Faith in the Bible is always something that reaches through until it touches God; through the smoke of battle, through the murk and misery that appall us, through the darkness of the hour, through the threatening forces of evil that seem so rampant – through, and beyond that, behind that, nay, above that, to God.”2
