Another great devotional from Beth Moore from last week that is still lingering in my heart. I just thought I’d share it.
WE WERE CREATED FOR THE PURPOSE OF GIVING CHRIST’S INVISIBLE CHARACTER A GLIMPSE OF VISIBILITY.
Lord, many have run this difficult race faithfully. I want to be among them.
Therefore, since I am surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,
help me throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles,
and help me run with perseverance the race marked out for me.
Help me to fix my eyes on You, Jesus, the author and perfecter of my faith,
who for the joy set before You endured the cross, scorning its shame,
and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God (Heb. 12:1-2).
As a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will you, My God, rejoice over me at Your appearing (Isa. 62:5).
