Day 3 of the 21 Days: Jesus Already Walked Our Path

I am not going to front, I feel like it has been 30 days instead of just three. When I think that I have 18 days left, it just seems so much. Doubt creeps into my mind that I won't be able to finish or continue. That doubt is just how the negative thoughts start to take over. I have to think positive and know that I will not only get through these 21 days with ease but also come out of it a refreshed person.

For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who was tempted in every way, just as we are--yet was without sin. 16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (NIV) ~Hebrews 4:15-16

I guess the thing we are to focus on is that Jesus knows what we go through. He was here; he lived our life. He is not unaware. The only difference is that he was perfect and without sin. We should be realize that through Jesus we are perfect and without sin. Because of his sacrifice we have been made whole. Our debt is already paid so there is nothing that we can go through that will change that. However, we should endeavor to be more like Him with earnest hearts and part of that is being confident that through God we can overcome anything. Through constant faithfulness there is nothing that we cannot achieve or overcome. He knows that we will fall and has cleansed us even before we make a move, but we have a role. We must got to Him for forgiveness and with faithfulness.

Prayer: God help me to be more like you with strength and conviction. Give me the power to fend off worldly temptations and negative thoughts.
