…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. (Hebrews 12:2 NKJV)
Thought for the Week: We must learn to trust God with our future no matter what our present circumstances might be. This is the basis of faith in its purest form. Christ is the premiere example of this. In that he suffered persecution, hardship, temptation and ultimately the cross; never wavering in his resolve to do the will of the Father. (Hebrews 5:8 NKJV) We must strive in following the same example.
Prayer: Father, please give me the strength to endure the situation, and to find the lessons and blessings within it. Please give me the endurance to press forward. Please guide my thoughts, words and actions; so I may walk your path of peace and love. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
