FOR I AM YOUR GREATEST ENCOURAGER

James 1:17

The Father is our greatest encourager! He has not come to condemn us, but to encourage us and give us hope. I believe that He stands on the sidelines cheering us on as we race down the field of life, all the while speaking hope into the deepest part of our being. His shouts of encouragement provide us with the strength that we need, when we need it, in order for us to finish the race that was uniquely charted for us.
I imagine Him running alongside of me, speaking words of affirmation as I continue to press on. With each loving glance and encouraging word, my muscles seem to strengthen and my endurance increases with the assurance that He loves me and wants me to finish well. 
When I do stumble and fall, I am quickly picked up and reminded that I was never actually running the race on my own, for it was Jesus who had been carrying me all along as He ran in stride with His Father.increases with the assurance that He loves me and wants me to finish well. 
When I do stumble and fall, I am quickly picked up and reminded that I was never actually running the race on my own, for it was Jesus who had been carrying me all along as He ran in stride with His Father.
The Father and the Son truly are our greatest encouragers. May their eternal encouragement bring us hope and provide us with the strength we need in order to run the race set out before us.
