Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Everything Jesus went through for us is an example so that we too can continue what we have been called to do. What we go through now is nothing compared to the glory God will reveal to us later. (Romans 8:18) Be strong in your faith, don’t lose heart, it will all be worth it in the end.
You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
When times are tough, when you are struggling, or when things in your life seem stagnant, don’t give up and don’t lose your confidence in God. Wait without giving up, you only fail if you quit, do what God asks of you, finish your race strong, and you will receive what He has promised.
God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged.
The Bible tells us that God cannot lie. His promises and oaths are unchangeable. We can believe and be confident that if God has made a promise we can count on it and not only can we count on it, we can live our lives by it.
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.
There is enough negativity in the world today, instead of spreading more speak words of encouragement. God has called us to encourage each other daily. Don’t let sin harden your heart, instead be kind to one another. You never know what someone may be going through and a kind word may help them get through the day.
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.
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.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
The Bible, which is the Word of God, isn’t some old irrelevant book of stories. It is alive and active today and forever more. If you begin to read God’s word, I promise, it will begin to change your life. Whatever you are going through the answer is in God’s word.
