Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who by faith have testified to the truth of God’s absolute faithfulness], stripping off every unnecessary weight and the sin which so easily and cleverly entangles us, let us run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us.
— Hebrews 12:1 AMP
Lord, thank You for reminding me that many others have gone before me and endured all the hardships of a life of faith and service to You. Their stories and testimonies give me hope and encouragement that I, too, can endure. Grant me endurance, persistence, courage, faith, and strength to keep going on the pathway You have set before me. Help me to accomplish all You have in mind for me to do—nothing less, since that would be wasteful, and nothing more, since that would be prideful. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
