“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith...” “So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees. Mark out a straight path for your feet so that those who are weak and lame will not fall but become strong.”
Hebrews 12:1-2, 12-13
In life sometimes we can find ourselves stuck. Not producing fruit like we know we should. Dealing with the same issues over and over again. Having no hope or faith in life. When we get stuck we get tired…sluggish or feeling weak.
So, what’s the solve? JESUS IS! He’s our champion! He’s the one that jumpstarts and perfects our faith. Jesus is the one that gives us the strength to run, and endurance to keep going. When we fix our eyes on Jesus there’s a fresh confidence that comes. It’s time to stand up, and to take a new grip on life. Gone are the days of weakness! Now are the days of strength and grace!
Invite God into every area of your life, and let His wisdom guide your way.
Examine yourself and make whatever changes needed to walk in God’s ways.
