Hebrews 12:1b, “and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,”
Here we are with that pesky “endurance” word again, but let me encourage you that you can make it! You can get through that storm, you can accomplish all that is before you, and you can be that man or woman of God that He has called you to be! He hasn’t left you to run alone ~ He’s got you!
Have you shopped for curtains lately? I was shocked when I was looking, not too long ago that the majority were all “Blackout” curtains! What on earth? Did everyone take to sleeping all day in 2020, so there was a run on blackout curtains or something? Too funny. That is sort of where we are in the world ~ satan has done his best to shut out the light ~Jesus. God has been taken out of anything the world could get its hands on and they are trying to get it out of your home as well. TV shows are riddled with things that, if you aren’t careful, you will become numb to what is right and wrong according to the word of God. I am not saying that you can’t find something good to watch, just be careful what you allow in your home. There are some great things on Pureflix and there are great DVDs like “Chosen” that you could watch with your kids and teach them about God in the process. Choose wisely so you aren’t shutting God out of your home. The world is constantly turning things that are right and saying they are wrong and wrong into right, don’t buy the lies. As Christians, we must constantly be praying for God to show us the truth and we must strive to keep our standards at a level that honors Him! So just as you would have to do with those blackout curtains, you must pull back the darkness of the world to allow the light into your life and it is a choice. How much of His light do you want in your home and life? It is your choice every day. He wants to be a part of everything you do. He wants to show you His love and give you His strength to not only have the light for yourself but so you can be a light in a dark, dark world.
When you train to run a race and you build your endurance, it is a great feeling! As you grow in Him and His endurance that He will provide it will be a great feeling as well. Draw close to Him today. Don’t waste a moment. Ask Him how you can have more of Him in your everyday life. Don’t allow satan to defeat you. God loves you and wants His best for you, satan hates you and wants to destroy you by blocking God out, should be a pretty simple choice. Take every thought captive and start filling your mind with the Word of God through reading and memorization and you will realize that truly His best is yet to come!
