Scripture: Hebrews 6

Love in action produces good things.

It takes patient work, but it cultivates hope.

And we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness to have the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Hebrews 6:11‭-‬12

The promises of God are the focus of this hope. They’re our anchor in a turbulent time.

We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.

Hebrews 6:19‭-‬20

This hope is Jesus.

Journal: Write a prayer to God for patient endurance in showing love.

Scripture: Joshua 6 and Hebrews 11

Under Joshua’s leadership the nation of Israel exhibited faith at it’s fullest.

They walked around those walls for six days. Silently, patiently, obediently.

Then on the seventh day they did it one more time…gave a big yell…and the walls fell down.

This doesn’t happen by man’s plans or by man’s power. This is only by the might of God.

Walk down the “Hall of Faith” in Hebrews 11. Along with Joshua and Rahab, there’s a whole list of messed up people who got at least one thing right. They had faith.

So if you feel like you’re standing against a wall and can’t do anything right by the world’s standards, realign your standards with God’s standards and stand (or walk round and round) in faith.

Journal: Write a prayer for more faith!

Move: Let’s run today! Get out and run that first 5k or go longer!!! You’ve got this!

{My “beginner’s run program” starts anew on Tuesday, so if you didn’t make it this time get ready for a re-do.}

Praise the Lord, and just show up!

Even if it seems like you’re the only one.

You’re never alone.

He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” —
