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. Heb 12:1-2a. God’s word is full of people who have lived victorious lives of faith and endured much worse trials than most of us, to encourage us in our walk of faith. As we make a decision to trust God and keep our eyes on Jesus we can live victoriously regardless of what we see. It’s time to cast aside our doubts and fears that hold us back, and to get right with God if anything is not right, so we can run the victors race that He has put before us. Praise God today that we can live victoriously as we place our trust in Him and keep our eyes on Jesus.
