Hebrews 12:1-2 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, (2) 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 Need To Look Upward To The Throne of God
Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Grace means unmerited or undeserved favor. We certainly client deserve God's favor but we certainly need it, and we are encouraged to approach God's throve boldly.
We need what God desires to give us. We need His mercy because we are so weak and temptations are so strong. Our strength is nothing but His is everything.
With His mercy and grace we can live the victorious and abundant lives that God intends for us to live. Look to Him for what you need to gain victory today!
