Just consider and meditate on Him who endured from sinners such bitter hostility against Himself [consider it all in comparison with your trials] so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. — Hebrews 12: 3 (AMP)

Thank you Benjamin Lee for this amazing post. Friends, I don’t know who needs to hear this today, but I know I so appreciate God’s promises. CONSIDER JESUS. The simple command to meditate on the Messiah is the answer to every tangled Web we have been caught in, every circumstantial hill that has zapped our spiritual and emotional strength, and every deep valley of depression that has left us gasping for Hope. CONSIDER JESUS. Today Many in this world will leave or abandon you, but the Lord WILL NOT! Tuck this word into your hearts, friends, and know that God breathed out this word just for YOU. Amen! God bless.
