VerseD: Hebrews 12:1

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
Hebrews 12:1, ESV

The Bible tells us of dozens – hundreds – thousands – who believed in and were faithful to God. Their example and testimony should inspire us and spur us on toward godliness – Christ-likeness.

VerseD: Isaiah 12:2

“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.”
Isaiah 12:2, ESV

Is this true for you today? Is God your salvation, through faith in Jesus Christ? Do you still fear death or the worries of life?

Trust Jesus today.

VerseD: Proverbs 4:23

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.
Proverbs 4:23, ESV

Job made a covenant with his eyes, and many limit what they eat. But God reminds us everything we look at, listen to, and think about affects the heart (and mind and soul). What we allow in and dwell on affects our thoughts, beliefs, and actions.

VerseD: Matthew 7:8

“For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”
Matthew 7:8, ESV

All are welcome to seek and call on the Name of the Lord.

Those who repent and believe then only need ask.

How many times do we not ask God for what we need, or even want?

Daniel



15When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my LORD! What shall we do?” the servant asked.
16“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
17And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, LORD, so that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

2 Kings 6:15-17

How many times in our life have we looked at situations that seem daunting and scary? I have fallen into the trap of not believing that our God has things under control.

I have fallen into the trap of not believing that our God has things under control.

I pray that God would open up our spiritual eyes and have Faith that God has it under His control. We may never see chariots of fire, but we can by faith see our tough circumstances in the light of God’s power.

Open my eyes, LORD. I want to see Jesus.

Mark

VerseD: Luke 1:37

“For nothing will be impossible with God.”
Luke 1:37 ESV

The only things impossible for God to do are those that are against His nature.

Natural laws are no hindrance.

Your beliefs and expectations are no hindrance.

Even for lack of imagination and faith are no hindrance.

VerseD: John 15:7

If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
John 15:7, ESV

Jesus is not promising a “Name-It-and-Claim-It” kind of wishful thinking.

Jesus is following through on what many other parts of the Bible, including His own words, promise: When your character is becoming so in tune with His and you are living by the Holy Spirit, then you will ask for things according to His will.

And then your requests will be given.
