|“Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed” -Proverbs 16:3|
|“God has a great race for you to run. Under His care, you’ll go where you’ve never been and serve in ways you’ve never dreamed. But you have to release your burdens.”
|Life has often been compared to a race, and it is often a test of our will, our endurance, and our resilience in the same way a physical race is.
What’s the secret of making it to the finish line? Is it determination? Is it trying harder? Is it mustering every ounce of courage we can find? Is it asking great people to help us? Those things all sound great, but we’ll never make it to the finish line on our own efforts—even if others help us. In this way the Christian race is different from a marathon or mad sprint.
The Christian life has always been and will always be about trusting God and relying on His power and help, not just to bring us salvation, but to help us take each step of our life’s journey. That victorious finish will not come by trying harder—but by trusting Him more!
Dear God, I know I can’t win the race of life on my own. I need Your help and guidance every step of the way. Thank you for being there for me! Amen.
