“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,” Hebrews 12:1
Romans 15:4 reminds us, “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.” In Hebrews 11, we read of many men and women who lived by faith. Then, we reach Hebrews 12:1, which exhorts us to not give up but to continue. I know that it is an encouragement for me to read through the many men and women of faith who the Lord strengthened to live as He would have them to. The God Who shut the mouths of Daniel’s lions, Who protected Joseph through various troubles, Who kept David safe from the enemies next to him, and Who protected Noah in the ark is the SAME God that I serve today!
