Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.
No matter how many times you cry out to God for strength He will be there. He hears you every single time. Don’t give up, don’t stop seeking the Lord. Don’t let anything keep you from seeking His face.
Fear not for I am with you; be not dismayed for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
God is telling you not to be afraid because He is with you. What better reassurance can you get? God Himself is saying that you shouldn’t be frightened because He is your God and He’s going to be with you to strengthen you, help you, and defend you not because you are righteous but because He is. Knowing that God is on your side should make you fearless.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
God wants you to run the race he planned and designed specifically for you, not anyone else’s race. Ask God for the strength and courage to get rid of anything that comes between you and him. Keep your eyes focused on God, seek his will for your life and don’t give up.
A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
Your worth is found on the inside not on the outside. Your character is worth more than fleeting beauty. Nobel characteristics like honesty, generosity, and courage are more important than your dress size, bank account, or looks. Your worth is found in God and your relationship with him, not in the opinions of others. Jesus paid the ultimate price for you because you are worth far more than rubies.
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.
God loved us so much he made a way for us to be saved. Jesus came to this world to seek and save the lost, to offer us salvation. He came to rescue us from a life of sin. As Christians, we need to share this good news with the world while there is still time.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
Christ has the power to make you free and those that are set free by the Son are truly free. If you accept his teaching as truth and also obey his teaching you are true disciples. You will know the truth because your eyes will open to a greater understanding of the truth which will set you free from the bondage of sin.
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
There are so many people that need help right now and will continue to need our help in the future. If you are blessed to be in a position to help those in need I’m sure they would be grateful for whatever you can do. The Lord sees all that you do and never forgets the work you do or the love you show him by helping his people. You will be rewarded in heaven and for all eternity.
