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, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. Hebrews 12:1-2
When you read the news headlines or think about the daily struggles you and your loved ones face, it is easy to lost heart. The challenges can certainly seem too overwhelming to overcome.
But that is why Scriptures calls you to have a different focus-not looking at the circumstances before you, but having a gaze fixed on Jesus. Why? Because Jesus is greater than whatever is happening to you. Your relationship with Christ opens the door to every blessing the Father has promised in His Word and provides all the resources you will ever need. Jesus is the reason you can have an unshakable, eternal hope that everything is going to be okay, regardless of the situation.
So no matter what you’re facing today, don’t think of it in terms of your strength or knowledge. Instead, consider what Jesus-the all-powerful, all-wise Savior who defeated sin and death on your behalf-can do. Certainly, Jesus is the anchor that will always hold you steady, no matter how serve the storm may be.
