Thursday, November 14th: Ezekiel 29:1-30:26, Hebrews 11:32-12:13, Psalm 112:1-10, Proverbs 27:17 ~ Nathan

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Ezekiel 29:1-30:26, Hebrews 11:32-12:13, Psalm 112:1-10, Proverbs 27:17 

But others were tortured, refusing to turn from God in order to be set free. They placed their hope in a better life after the resurrection. Some were jeered at, and their backs were cut open with whips. Others were chained in prisons. Some died by stoning, some were sawed in half, and others were killed with the sword. Some went about wearing skins of sheep and goats, destitute and oppressed and mistreated. They were too good for this world, wandering over deserts and mountains, hiding in caves and holes in the ground. All these people earned a good reputation because of their faith, yet none of them received all that God had promised. For God had something better in mind for us, so that they would not reach perfection without us.
Hebrews 11:35b‭-‬40 NLT

This example shows what some Christians have all gone through, because they had strong faith. They didn't receive their reward on earth, but did in Heaven. 

Would I go through any of these things for Jesus? Would I have strong faith by not taking my reward now on earth, but rather in Heaven?

I pray that I grow stronger in my faith and focus on Jesus.
