Hebrews 12:1-3 New International Version (NIV)
12 “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, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
Through adversity, through trials, through tribulation...we endure, because our Shepherd endured. We run the race with perseverance and determination, racing over obstacles with triumph. Our hearts do not lose hope, but withstand every heartache with incredible resilience! For the Lord is the refresher of our souls! The sound of our stampeding in motion throws a chill through the enemies spine...They shiver at the roaring of our progress...seeing us in the distance they flee, their arrows break in the bow and they turn on themselves. When the feet of the Godly take ground it will never be lost for the Lord Himself has taken the ground. Let the weak say “I am strong!” Let the voices of the redeemed go forth to all the Nations. Let the testimonies of His people be made known to all men. Let us run this race and let the sound of His coming be heard throughout the world...as a roaring stampede of His people prepare the way for His coming. Let us run this Race!
