Hebrews 12:3
"Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." NIV
"For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds." KJV
So many times we get discouraged and down because our lives seem to be stressed to full capacity and we don't know how we can endure much more. We may be tempted to just quit trying or get so overwhelmed that we become ineffective and unproductive. When these times come, we can look at what Jesus endured while He walked this earth. We can consider the horror He went through from the Garden of Gethsemane to the Tomb. Then we will understand that He will provide the grace we need to rise above anything that comes against us in this life.
Heavenly Father, oh how weak and fragile we are! Help us to remember and reflect on the trials and unfair, evil treatment Christ endured while He was here. Give us Holy Spirit strength to stand firm against the things that come against us and weigh us down so that we will continue to be effective and productive for Your kingdom. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
