My sweet friend Linda, the servant/prayer warrior behind Daily Prayer for You, has once again (with the Holy Spirit's guidance of course), got right into my head and heart with her prayer and Scripture selection for today!! I don't know about you, but this time of year, leading up to the New Year, is both exciting and daunting...there are so many challenges ahead, resolutions and plans, and the work we know the Lord has for us to do. It can be overwhelming...at least it is for me...especially when I know my not-so-great track record for follow-through. I hope you too will be encouraged, as I was today, to "run with confidence" the course set before us...and to KNOW the Source of this confidence and to seek Him first in all things. Sounds like a good #1 for my resolution list this year!!

"Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward. For you have need of steadfast patience and endurance, so that you may perform and fully accomplish the will of God, and thus receive and carry away [and enjoy to the full] what is promised." Hebrews 10: 35, 36 (AMP)
"Let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us..." Hebrews 12:1b (AMP)
"And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint." Galatians 6:9 (AMP)
May you run with confidence, with courage, with persistence, and with patience the course that is set before you. May your heart be strengthened and your spirit be encouraged for the journey ahead. I pray the Lord would inspire fearless confidence in you to perform and fully accomplish the will of God for your life in the days and months ahead. May you be more than a conqueror through Him who loves you (Romans 8:37). Keep running the course, keep fighting the good fight of faith, keep persevering, and keep loving. Great is your appointed reward! In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
"Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called..." 1 Tim 6:12 (NIV)
