I was reading Hebrews 12 this morning and the Lord really spoke to me about verses 1 through 3. This is what I heard:
“My child, run your race. Run with endurance. Run with your eyes fixed on Me. For I give you My strength. I give you My power. I give you My Spirit. I have set My joy before you. My Kingdom is at hand. Look not to the left or the right. Do not grow weary or lose heart, for I am with you. You have a great cloud of witnesses cheering you on. You have everything you need to finish strong. Don’t give up and don’t give in. Endure to the end and take joy in the race I have set before you.
Jesus, the author and perfecter of your faith.”
