The Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines endurance as “the ability to withstand hardship or adversity; especially: the ability to sustain a prolonged stressful effort or activity.”
There are Scriptures which call us to “Prepare a way for the Lord.” However, our text clearly directs us to rebuild the road so that His people can return. We know that there are people all around us who are trapped in the wilderness. God wants us to rebuild the way so that they can find their way home to Him. The highway to God is often littered with obstacles that are in the way and make it difficult for those in captivity to find their way home to God.
