TODAY'S MANNA for Thursday, Nov. 8, 2018
The Author and Finisher
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 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 is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:1-2 KJV
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE...
Do you look unto Jesus as the author and finisher of your faith?
If you have surrounded yourself with other believers, those of like precious faith rather than those who are of the world it will be much easier to cast aside the burdens and cares of this world (and the sins of the flesh). You can't party Friday with the world and expect to cast aside the sins of the flesh. You also can’t be around so-called believers who don’t understand the Bible correctly or who are spouting doctrines of men instead of God’s Holy Word! If you are NOT around unbelief and sin it is much easier to run the race that Jesus has set before you. He knows the race, He knows the course, and He knows the outcome (the finish.) He wrote your life before you were born! Look unto Him and He will lead and guide you giving you the strength to finish the race. Don't look unto the world or wolves within the church for your guidance. Jesus will give you the strength to cast aside that which would cause you to stumble and fall and to be caught up again in sin. Jesus alone is the way, the truth, and the life. He is the only way unto the Father in Heaven. The Only Way! There is NO other way period!
Holy Father, Author and Finisher of my destiny, take my life and my every breath and help me to use it for Your glory. May my words and actions from this day forward be a product of looking unto Jesus. Looking unto what He has already done for me and taking it and using it to finish my race. May all that I do in life be to the glory of Your Kingdom. In Jesus name I pray.
