Luke — How Resolute Are You?

Day 3113: TGIF!!! Thank God I’m Forgiven!!!

Scripture: As the time approached for Him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. Luke 9:51

Thoughts/questions: Most of us try to avoid tough situations or people, but Jesus took them head on. He knew what lay ahead of Him, but He resolutely moved forward. Resolutely has quite a definition – doing something in an admirably purposeful, determined, and unwavering manner. 

Would that definition describe your actions when facing challenges ahead? There are so many aspects of Jesus’ life that set the bar pretty high for us, and this is certainly one of them. But a high standard doesn’t excuse us in any way.

When the time approaches for you to be strong, may you accomplish what you need to by doing something in an admirably purposeful, determined, and unwavering manner. 

Suggested Prayer:  Dear Jesus, may I not live in fear, but help me to be resolute . . .
