The Race Set Before Us

There is a race that has been set before us.  It is not a sprint or a high jump, but a marathon.  We are running this race with Christ.  We have moments where we run out of steam or think that our legs will just give out from under us, but it is in those moments that we truly see God working in our life.  He is always there helping us keep the pace.  If we run ahead of Him then we risk losing our way, but if we run with Him, then we know that we will finish the race that He has set.  In Hebrews 12 it says, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of throne of God.”  He is our source of strength, joy, and love.  We need Him to finish the race that has been set bfore us.  I recently fell in love with running.  There is a great peace when you block out the rest of the world and focus on the road ahead.  We have to be able to lay aside those things, those hurdles, that will come into our path.  Trust in the Lord.  Run with HIM today.
