Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 04/15/12

This week’s scripture is from Hebrews:

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith …  (Hebrews 12:2a)

We get lost, we get preoccupied, with the world, with work, with life. The enemy moves subtly against the saints, distracting and hindering. Opposition can be quiet yet consistent, using up our time, pulling us away, drying up the hours, occupying our thoughts, turning about in our mind, slowly wearing down the day until it is gone and weariness drops us off to sleep, short on prayer, lacking in the Lord, missing time in His word, leaving things undone. We chastise ourselves, but tiredness takes us down. Lift up your heart, saints, turn your eyes on Jesus, look up to the Lord of Glory, turn every thought, turn every situation, over to Him, set your gaze upon Him, call upon Him, let Him be your strength, praise His name.

May the Lord bless you not to be distracted or hindered, but to rise up in the power of Jesus Christ.
