You are My crown of joy. You were set before Me when I traveled the road to Gethsemane and on to Golgotha. I never took My eyes off of you. This is key, My child. You, too, must keep your eyes on Me while you carry your cross. When you feel that you cannot take another step, stop and refocus your gaze upon Me.
I am the Author and Finisher of your faith. You cannot fail when your eyes on Me. I am your strength. I am your hope. I am your joy. I will walk each step of the way with you. My joy is your strength. My peace is your peace. All I have is yours, for I have purchased it all for you to walk in victory.
Therefore, do not lose hope or give in to the enemy's taunts and jeers. Keep putting one foot in front of the other, for you are wearing more than a crown of suffering, but also a crown of glory and victory. Know that it will be worth it all. Suffering will only seem like a moment compared to all eternity with Me in glory.
Hebrews 12:2 The Passion Translation (TPT)
We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because his heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!
Revelation 3:10-12 The Passion Translation (TPT)
10 Because you’ve passionately kept my message of perseverance, I will also keep you from the hour of proving that is coming to test every person on earth. 11 But I come swiftly, so cling tightly to what you have, so that no one may seize your crown of victory. 12 For the one who is victorious, I will make you to be a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, permanently secure. I will write on you the name of my God and the name of the city of my God—the New Jerusalem, descending from my God out of heaven. And I’ll write my own name on you.
