Daily in Your Presence - Aug. 3

Day 216


Consider him who

endured such opposition from sinful men,

so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Hebrews 12:3

My child, you're not the only one who's been rejected, wounded, and misunderstood for My sake. Remember My suffering and endurance, and let it encourage you when you feel like surrendering. I never intended for you to run the race alone. Not only is a cloud of witnesses hovering near—men and women of faith—but I'm standing at the finish line cheering you on. When you arrive, I have a crown just for you—the crown of endurance.

Your endurance is my example, Lord. I've never sweat drops of blood. I've never been crucified.  All along the road, hecklers, doubters, and schemers lined Your path. But You finished the race; You completed the task.  You even loved Your enemies. How can I give up now?


The crown He gives will be my applause to Him.
