Just like students in the classroom near the end of the school year, we may have points in our spiritual journey when we feel lazy or spiritually sluggish. When we reach these points in our journey, we need to look to those that came before us. We can read the Bible to learn how others have persevered, held onto the Hope that God gives us through faith in Jesus, and prayerfully talk to God about the plans He has for each of us. In the end we can imitate the faithful examples of others and proceed with faith and patience toward the promises of God!
Don't be a spiritual slacker! Hold onto the promises of God and keep moving and growing in faith!
Thank You for giving me hope through the sacrifice of Your Son. Help me to hold onto my faith in You and to continue to patiently move toward Your promises as those before me have done. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
