The Light Daily Devotional – Life is a Race
Focus: Life is a Race
WORD FOR TODAY
Life is an exclusive race that must be run by all towards eternity. Your existence will only be impactful and count before God if you are submissive to Him enough to run the race that has been set before you!
“Therefore, 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, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress. And let us run with endurance the race that God has set before us.” Hebrews 12:1 NLT
The purpose of the existence of man is to run the race of life. Several men ran this race and made an indelible mark in the sand of time. The records of their experiences; what they lived for, their mistakes and successes, and how they ended their journey was not hidden from us. Many of these men fulfilled their purpose and mandate.
You are also in the race of life. Whatever happens to you is typical to men who have run this race before you. As you proceed in destiny be mindful of the fact that life is given to prepare for eternity. Hence, let us strip off everything we attach ourselves to and those things we seek which tends to slow us down.
We must repent from all sins hindering our spiritual growth. We must identify the purpose of our existence and live to fulfil it. Irrespective of whatever our lot might have appeared to be in destiny, let us live by faith and run with endurance the race that God has set before us.
+ Are you running the race set before you?
Prayer: Lord! I receive the grace to live a purposeful life and run with endurance the race set before me in Jesus name. Amen!
Emphasis: Running the race set before you is critical to pleasing God and fulfilling your purpose!
