Remember that you can come boldly to My throne of grace anytime you need mercy and grace to overcome. I am always here to help you see things from My perspective. I am here to comfort and guide. Even when you feel that you cannot take it anymore, I will shield you from the enemy's onslaught of accusations. Even when you are in the wrong, My purpose in allowing the refining is to make you more like My Son. I am taking you from glory to glory. I will never condemn nor belittle you. I am always for you, cheering you on. The great cloud of witnesses are surrounding you, telling you to keep going. You're almost home!
There are so many rewards for the overcomers! Take time to see past your current situation and look ahead to the prize. Those that look back aren't fit for the Kingdom, for they are always looking behind. Have I not said to keep your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith? Therefore, set your heart on things above and run your race. You can do it! I will never leave you or forsake you! Run and I will carry you on My wings of love!
Hebrews 4:14-16 The Message (MSG)
14-16 Now that we know what we have—Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God—let’s not let it slip through our fingers. We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help.
2 Corinthians 3:18 Living Bible (TLB)
But we Christians have no veil over our faces; we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like him.
Exodus 19:4 English Standard Version (ESV)
You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself.
