2 “…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.”
Today’s Inspiration: Every manifestation evolves around our faith. Since we are surrounded by a great cloud of witness, we must lay aside every baggage that so ensnares us and run the race set before us with endurance looking at Jesus the author and perfector of our faith and who endures the cross despising the shame and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2. We cannot run the race of faith without focusing our eyes on Jesus and run diligently the race with endurance.
The greatest strategy of Satan is to shame us and steal our time with God. We need persevering faith to definitely seek Him and focus on Him.
Diligently seeking Him means we must exercise every concerted effort constantly to pursue Him. We set aside everything that steals our time with God. God rewards those with faith and who is passionate for Him by giving every ounce of our strength to Seeking Him and His heart like David.
We keep pressing into His presence so that He will regard ourselves as His friend like He did with Abraham. Drawing near to God is a path of great reward. Hebrews 11:6. With more abiding, we have more victories like David and succeed in every way of life. Without faith it is impossible to please God. Hebrews 11:6. Without pressing in to pursue His heart, we will not have a reward. Therefore, let us lay aside every barrier and pursue our passion for Him. God be praised.
Prayer: Lord make me an instrument of Your faith and we need Your power to be an effective witness of Jesus Christ. O Lord God thank You for calling upon Your backsliding Christians to return to You. Grant us the grace of bringing them back. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
