“Just think of Him Who endured from sinners such grievous opposition and bitter hostility against Himself [reckon up and consider it all in comparison with your trials], so that you may not grow weary or exhausted, losing heart and relaxing and fainting in your minds.” Hebrews‬ ‭12:3‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

There is power in the gospel! Yes, to save us for eternity, as we trust in the death and resurrection of Jesus, but also to save us, to strengthen us, in those moments when life is tough and we just want to give up! Decisions are made in the mind and are influenced by a whole variety of factors. But the best decisions come from a mind set on Jesus, a mind filled with His wisdom, that values what He went through and has faith in His calling; that is focused on the bigger picture and can see the destination. Lord, help me to keep my eyes and my thoughts fixed on You today, that I might stay alert and on track, running with purpose in every step. Amen 🙌🏼😊
