9/21 Days of Prayer
Hebrews 12:1 (NKJV)
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
Have you ever had someone cheer for you from the stands? It’s a great feeling to know people are on your side and they believe in you! My mom was always my biggest cheerleader at baseball games. Every time I got up to bat she was yelling, “Knock it out of the park, son!” She believed in me and was there to cheer me on. That’s why I love this passage of scripture so much.
The Bible says we are in a race and we are surrounded by “a cloud of witnesses.”
I believe there are people in heaven cheering us on. Can you imagine Noah in the stands cheering? Or what about Abraham? Or Peter? I like to think they are, but I’m positive that Jesus is cheering us on. He is our advocate. He’s cheering you on every time you wake up and all day long until you go to bed. He believes in you and knows your potential to make a difference in this world.
Lord, Thank you for believing in me, and for giving me time, talent and treasure to use on this earth. Help me to run the race You’ve set before me well. In Jesus name, Amen.
