The Race of Faith!
by Shepherd . 3/06/2013 / Devotionals
Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, we must trust that through Him we can overcome anything at all! We are overcomers! We have been gifted with faith! He gives us our measure of faith that will enable us to win our battles! He keeps us in perfect peace. He lets us continue on in the face of all adversity, and although we may stumble, He never lets us fall. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, and He will deliver you to your promised land, the land that He promised to our forefathers! Let Him live through you, because through His eyes, everything looks different. Jesus knows all your outcomes from all your experiences, and He knows that your futures are good. If there were no more good things in your future, He would have taken you home. And me too! That's why we must continue on towards the prize, so we can collect our crowns at the end of our race, and hear those precious words from our Lord, "Well done good and faithful servants." PRAISE HIM!
Hebrews 12:1-2 "Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
Glory to God for these words, Amen.
