SECOND DAY CONTINUED
“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.”
We have to keep our eyes on Jesus while we are being testing, as they were in the wilderness, while the transformation is taking place.
Jesus endured the cross, how?
He saw the third day, He was able to see the outcome. It was the joy set before Him, not in that moment, but promise of the Father. Where the children of Israel failed in the wilderness because of their doubt and unbelief, Jesus kept the joy that was before Him. Had Joshua and Caleb not concentrated on the promise, they would have never experienced it.
KEEP YOUR EYES ON JESUS AND THE PROMISE HE HAS GIVEN YOU!!
This time shall pass and you will have your prize (your reward, your promise)!!! KEEP ENCOURAGING YOURSELF IN THE LORD AND KNOW THIS TIME HAS A PURPOSE IN YOUR TRANSFORMATION!
