372 – Looking to Jesus
August 30, 1989 San Francisco
Dan prayed for a new heart for me that does not believe, get under condemnation. I pull it over me ALL the time, like I used to do depression—as though it were a monitor of if I am okay or not. And of course it always says, “no, you are separated from God, from your husband, from your children.”
Hebrews 12:1 …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.
2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men so that you do not grow weary and lose heart.
7Endure hardship as discipline.
12…strengthen your feeble arms…weak knees
14Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
