The Bible talks to us about running our race and finishing it strong. Well sometimes we find ourselves running smack dab into a barrel in life. It can be very discouraging to our race. We have a choice when we are face with a mistake or an event that rattles us, we can pause and reflect on that or we can head on to the next barrel or the next place God has for us.
When you have rounded that third barrel you can make up some time by booking it home. So when you find yourself running into that place that could set you back determine to set yourself like stone and not be moved by it. Isaiah 50:7 says because the Sovereign Lord helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do His Will. And I know that I will not be put to shame.
Once you have determined to not be moved by a mistake or a hurt then you can kick it in to high gear and book it home to your father God.
Isaiah 40:31 says but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint…
He has a purpose for you and others are watching you in your race just as I was watching those girl run their race. Acts 20:24 says But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my race and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
Looking forward to seeing you in the winner’s circle…
