TOPIC: START STRONG, FINISH WELL
SCRIPTURE: Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. – Hebrews 12:1 (NIV)
JOYCE MEYER DEVOTIONAL FOR 24TH OCTOBER 2023
Typically, we are excited at the beginning of an opportunity, a relationship, or a venture. We’re also happy when we can celebrate our achievements and have the satisfaction of fulfilled desires. But between the beginning and the end, every situation or pursuit has a “middle”—and the middle is where we often face our greatest challenges, hurdles, roadblocks, obstacles, detours, and tests.
The enemy wants you to stop short of receiving and enjoying everything God has for you, and he will tempt you to give up by sometimes making the middle of your venture seem too long or too hard. God, on the other hand, wants the very best for you; He wants you to finish the race set before you, enjoying every step along the way. Be determined to be faithful all the way through and enjoy your victory.
Prayer of the Day: Father God, please help me to be diligent in the middle of my challenges. I ask that You help me remain faithful as I overcome every obstacle and in the name of Jesus, I will celebrate the victory You have prepared for me, amen.
