“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
Hebrews 12:1-4

The Lord’s faithfulness is what keeps me secure in the midst of every storm that rages. I have no control over the assault of adversity but I can choose where I put my trust and the only thing that works for me is abiding in Christ. He is the One I look to as my example to follow because He was resolute in His surrender to do God’s will, no matter what He had to sacrifice to do it.

His honesty and integrity in every situation He faced was because of the confidence He had in His Heavenly Father. I want to have that same dependence in His trustworthiness that Jesus demonstrated in His life.

I pray that God will help me remember that He is always there for me, no matter what is happening in my circumstances.
