Why is the last course the hardest?
It seems uphill the rest of the way.
~ So that you will know that nothing has been of your own strength.
It has been only by the will of the Father, the promise and calling of the Son, and the power of the Holy Spirit that you have breathed, moved and had any being in this world. (Acts 17:28)
In the whole of life endurance comes only by His working His strength in your weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10) You can continue on as you rest your weariness on Him.
When you cannot move He will carry you the remainder of the way.
To the Israelites He said, “I bore you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself.” Exodus 19:4
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience 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 is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2
“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
“Are not the angels all ministering spirits sent out in the service
of those who are to inherit salvation?”
Dear Father, thank you that your grace is sufficient, and that your strength is made perfect in our weaknesses. Let us be content in our infirmities knowing that the power of Christ rests on us, as your people. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
