We Are Jesus’ Joy

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 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 has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
(Hebrews 12:1-2)

Jesus endured the Cross for the joy that was set before Him. That joy was us.

Prayer: In times of challenge and trial, help us to endure and live in the midst of whatever details are before us. Enable us to set You before our spiritual eyes and hearts as the Joy set before us just as we are Your joy.

For that Joy is in You:

Knowing You.
Loving You.
Being with You.
Growing in You.
Living for You.

No matter what is going on around us or in our lives, You are our joy because we are Yours.
