Sweet Endurance

feb 25“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 is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2 (KJV)

What an awesome encouragement to us when we want to give up or get frustrated with situations! Amen to Christ’s endurance and for interceding for us at the right hand of God!

What is your current situation you are called to endure? This morning, I’m driving to work with snow everywhere and frigid cold temps. Perhaps the Winter weather is the last thing on your mind because the blizzard brewing in your life is gigantic. Broken relationships, financial struggles, illness, unmet goals – the list goes on and on.

I’d like to encourage you that there is joy coming, and not to give up! Endure that workout plan you started in January! Yes your body might be sore, but your daily discipline for Jesus is not for naught! Keep up the exercise! Press through the painful growth that comes from brokenness – envision victory is one moment away. That snowstorm that keeps hitting your town, week after week, fear not – Spring will come, don’t get depressed!

Endure the challenges, allow God to strengthen your faith and experience His unexplainable peace. When we focus daily on Him, and remember what He did for us on the cross, our daily earthly complaints seem to diminish and feel less overwhelming. Thank you Jesus for teaching us how to endure.

“Lord may we remember the joy that is set before us, and praise You daily for Your work on the cross.”

For His Glory
