Since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down and the sin that so easily trips us up.
Let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the Champion who initiates and perfects our faith.
Don’t sit down, don’t give up or throw in the towel, Keep Going!
In a time of reflection with The LORD, He brought some keys before me and I am passing along those keys to you.
The first key is to shut some things and open some others.
What I mean by this, is to shut off your mind and trust Jesus; learn to shut away in the secret place, for without a devotional life, you have an emotional life.
Shut the door on the enemy’s schemes especially the fear and failure spirits.
Always open the door of faith daily, open to his Word for he will give you revelation and open up to receive wisdom and direction from those who have earned the right to speak into your life.
The second key is to be patient in your in-between season!
It is in that waiting room of God that true motives are revealed.
Nothing can be trusted till it is tested! You are on a map called
Faith and you will reach your destination, so keep going.
The third key is God may sometimes answer your tantrums or rants and if He does, it may not always be what you expected.
See through the eyes of faith and not of frustration.
The fourth key is that it is a marathon and not a sprint!
You will experience a burn out if you expect to accomplish all your goals overnight.
It is all a process because anything birthed too quickly ends up being unhealthy.
There are many shooting stars that fizzle out when instead we need those bright and shining stars in the night.
The fifth key is to choose to live a life of no offense!
When offense comes make sure you have already forgiven in advance and then it can’t own you!
We are not only called to start great things for God, but too finish them as well.
Keep running with endurance the race God has set before you.
Don’t let the enemy trip you up or detour God’s plan for your life!
The LORD brought these next few words before me and they are truly words to remember and keep within us as we run this race called Life.
He said, “Never desire to hear the cheer from the crowd, but listen for the cry from the cloud!
Those who have finished their race are cheering us on!”
I for one loved those words as He brought them before me, because I have a precious Dad who is among that heavenly cheering crowd for me!
Also most importantly, there is a seat beside The King awaiting you!
