Hebrews 12:2 (NIV84) Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

A. God sets opportunities for joy in front of us during difficult times

B. When going through hard times, we must learn how to endure by keeping our eyes on the things that we believe will bring us joy

C. We must learn to view the challenges of life through the lenses of joy instead of the experiences of our pain

D. The joy we allow ourselves to experience during difficult times, can help us override the pain of our troubles

E. Your strength to make it through any contrary situation is in your joy

F. If you are going to experience a difficult season of life, find out what are you enduring for and let that be your motivation to keep going
