Focus on the Crown to go Through the Cross

Post  fennywest on Wed 22 Aug 2012, 3:47 pm





















Focus on the Crown to go through the Cross
Look to the Prize to be able to pay the price
Look at the possibilities to endure the problems



Jesus saw the crown and was able to endure the cross
Paul saw the Prize and was able to pay the price
Joseph saw the palace and was able to endure the pit



Which Goliath is currently taunting you day and night?
Which valley is currently challenging and vaporizing your strength?
Which mountain is daring you in the face like the walls of Jericho?














Focus on the Crown to go through the Cross
Look to the Prize to be able to pay the price
Look at the possibilities to endure the problems














1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Heb12:1-2
13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,
14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Phil3:13-14

8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed ---
10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 2 Corinthians 4
17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,


2COr48-10,17



Think of the victory to endure the valley
Think of the summer to go through the winter
Think of the coming bloom to go through gloom
