The reason why many fail to accomplish desired result in life is because they fail to persist in their pursuit and engagement to the point of breakthrough Gal. 6:9. Many at the brink of success and accomplishment, with probably just one more step or effort to put in, get tired and give up. Just any one can succeed, if he will be persistent enough in his pursuit and engagement to the point of result. Scriptures make us to understand that the help of God is the secret to continuity in one’s pursuit Acts 26:22. The help of God is what we call grace Heb. 4:16. This is what we need as believers in order to make the most of our privileges, labor and engagement in the kingdom 1Cor. 15:10.
Scriptures instruct us to follow the example of men who have obtained what we desire Heb. 6:12.

Also, we looked at those who had a great start but dropped off along the way and lost their place in destiny. I see the grace on those who finished the race answer on your life as we go through today’s study.
