“As for us, we have all of these great witnesses who encircle us like clouds”
Hebrews 12:1 [TPT]
Everyone remembers running foot races at school. It was always easier to finish when our team was cheering us on. Whenever we felt supported we naturally felt better and achieve more.
Todays verse reminds us that we have awe-inspiring support in a great cloud of witnesses. They are there just for us. They are there cheering us on to win. Today they’re roaring, “NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD – KEEP GOING!”
As you can see our victory comes from what we do with this support. God wants us to discard every weight and every clinging thing that holds us back. Truth is these things are too heavy for us anyway. As we drop them we obtain the freedom to run our race and heaven celebrates.
This week let’s not wait any longer. Lets discard any discouragement; past failure or weighty sin that’s been slowing us down. Let’s leave them beside the track. As we do this the cloud of witnesses will go wild with excitement. We will MOVE FASTER AND SEE CLEARER than ever before. Our heavenly supporters will wildly cheer us on to the finishing line of our future!
