We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting Him, He endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now He is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.
Good Morning My Champion!
You are the best in all the world. You have won the battle. You are my Love!
I do not know what the day will hold for me, LORD, but I do know that You will be with me. If it’s joy or sorrow, help me please to keep my eyes on You.
You gave everything for me to be here with You this morning. I do not pretend to understand that kind of love. What You endured, it’s pain and shame, and You did because You knew the joy of being with Your Father. Please till the soil of my heart so I also look forward to the joy of being with You in heaven.
Yet, You call me to be joyous right now. You have poured Your Spirit into my life and I can know that joy today. It’s not the silly kind of joy that makes us crazy happy. It’s the joy that just won’t go away, despite our circumstances. It’s the peace that doesn’t make sense to this world. It’s Your very life that lives in me.
You are the best in the Universe, Jesus, and I love You!
