possessing or showing courage or determination.
The dictionary defines the word valiant, as possessing or showing courage or determination. Our rose bush arbor along side our deck was full of roses in June. Right now the roses have all but disappeared for the season being replaced by God's beauties of the fall season. There is one persevering and valiant rose, however, who greets me every morning when I sit in my sunroom looking out on my deck having my devotions. This rose is there in spite of the other roses' disappearance and in spite of the cold weather.
This rose reminds me that I need to persevere and be valiant in the Lord. It reminds us all of that. Life can be and is often difficult. Yet there is blessing in perseverance (James 5:11). Whatever you or I are experiencing in this life, let us trust and rest in the Lord and persevere in the faith.
