Forget the past and look forward to what lies ahead. You must press forward to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus is calling you. The things you once counted as valuable in this world will be considered worthless when compared to what Christ has done for you. Put no confidence in human effort but that which is done with Christ. I will strengthen those who have tired hands and encourage those who have weak knees. Be strong and do not fear, for I am coming to destroy your enemies. I will open the eyes of the blind and unplug the ears of the deaf. Do not lose heart but find strength in Me.
