Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize?
Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
God had a plan for your life before you were even born. He had a lane marked out on the track of life with your name on it and a specific race for you to run. God has plucked you out of eternity, positioned you at this certain place in time and given you special gifts and talents for the purpose of serving this generation. Because of this, it’s imperative you ask yourself questions like … Where am I in my race in life? Am I running my race in my lane, pressing on for the prize that God has for me? Have I become a spectator who is sitting on the sidelines watching the race when I should be running? Have I banished myself according to other’s definition of me? Through a sin that has left me feeling guilt and shame? How can I get back in the race, ready to run and win?
Take some time today to answer those questions and get ready to renew your passion with what Christ has called you to! Because thats what He has promised to do for us through Adornment gathering. Wholesome healing and complete restoration.
Father God, we are at your feet Lord. We need you Lord and can do nothing without you. Lord, remind us our individual races so we can receive our crowns in the name of Jesus! Amen
