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. Heb12:1-2a. We are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses championing us on in our faith to overcome the obstacles in our life and to rise up into our calling and the path set before us. As we keep our eyes on Jesus,we will stay on the path and in the plans that God has for us. Where God guides, He provides, so no matter where you are,just keep your focus on Jesus and He will make a way where there seems to be no way. Thank Jesus today for His unfailing love, that even though we may stumble, He’s there to pick us up and encourage us to keep running the race before us.
