The Theme for Joyce Meyer Daily Devotionals June 26 2023 is Keep Looking to Jesus.
SCRIPTURE: Let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus…Just think of Him…so that you may not grow weary or exhausted, losing heart and relaxing and fainting in your minds. — Hebrews 12:1-3 (AMPC).
It doesn’t take any special talent to give up, lie down on the side of the road of life, and say, “I quit.” Any unbeliever can do that.
But once you get hold of Jesus—or, more accurately, He gets hold of you—He begins to pump strength, energy, and courage into you, and something strange and wonderful begins to happen. He won’t let you quit!
You may say, “Oh, Lord, I don’t want to go on anymore.” But He won’t let you give up, even if you want to. So, keep looking to Jesus and follow His example. When you do, you will keep pressing on no matter what comes your way.
Prayer of the Day: Lord Jesus, please give me strength, energy, and courage to keep going even when I feel like giving up. Thank You for not letting me quit, amen.
