Devotion 5.6.15

"If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses?  If you stumble in safe county, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?" Jeremiah 12:5

How do we measure up when we are tested along our walk of life?  We ask God for guidance, but how do we respond when He guides us into areas that are well beyond our boundaries of comfort?

"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, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our fait, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:1 - 2

Pray that God give us the strength necessary to take on those areas of challenge He presents us.  Pray that we have our focus on Him as we wander into the thickets of life.  Pray that Christ give us the strength necessary to endure the race we are running called life.

Hope Men's Ministry
