” Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2 KJV
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…LORD, we thank you for what you alone have done. LORD we thank you for being the author and finisher of our faith and moreover we look to you as our example. LORD, we look to your ways, your teaching and your Word as you found joy through temptation, joy through persecution, joy through testing. LORD, You saw the joy from the very beginning of creation and found us worthy of your love, you found us perfect in your sight and you endured for us showing us the example of righteousness in a cruel sin filled world.
You taught us how to walk and stand when others speak against us, when they slander our name, when they sling our past before us, when they despise who we are and shame our belief, knowledge, relationship and trust in you.
LORD, for it written in your Word and we believe, “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 KJV
