The Race of Your Life

Imagine you’re on a racetrack, ready to run the race of your life. The crowd is cheering, and you can feel the excitement. But this race isn’t just any race; it’s the race of life, and your goal is to finish and win.

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it.

– 1 Corinthians 9:24 ESV

God placed unique and divine ambitions within your heart – part of His vision for your life – and you need to pursue them. Your dreams, talents and passions are all gifts from Him, given with a purpose. You journey toward fulfilling God’s plan for your life as you embrace and pursue them.

Here’s the thing about running a race – it’s not always easy. You’ll face obstacles, challenges and moments when you feel like giving up. But you’re not running this race alone and you have been prepared for the race. You have God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit to coach you every step of the way.

Run your race and pursue your God-given ambitions with unwavering perseverance.

When pursuing your God-given dreams, keep your focus on the Lord. You may fall sometimes but get back up and keep running. By trusting the Lord and keeping your faith, God will pick you up and give you the grace to get you back on course.

As you run your race, keep your eyes fixed on the ultimate prize – an eternity with God. Let your vision propel you forward, even when there are obstacles. God is always within talking distance from you. Now is the time to press forward.

Today’s One Thing

Say to yourself, “I am running the race of life with perseverance, knowing that God’s vision for my ambitions is my guiding light. I will not give up, for He is with me every step of the way, and the ultimate prize of eternity with Him awaits me as I run with faith.”
