When was the last time you read Hebrews 11? If you haven’t read this Chapter in some time, I invite you to take you Bible with a note book or pad of paper and pen, and read through this amazing account. These are men and women of faith who faced challenges we know little about.

Through faith, many others endured because God provided something better for them.
After all the powerful motivation of this chapter, they still did not have what you and I have. “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:1–2).
Your ability to endure does NOT depend on you! It depends on where you are looking! Is it Jesus?
