Victory, instead of a dry boring wilderness experience of defeat, along with answered prayers, ground-gained if ya will, souls won instead of permanently lost, a fulfilled calling, an uber-cool location called Heaven, face-to-face meaningful fellowship and Christ Himself.. really won’t mean less for you, believer. What a Prize awaits! He’s the very best! Every story on every single page in all of the Bible just whispers His great Name. 

Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus... 3/13phil

Stand firm, and you will win life. 21/19lk.niv
