Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangled. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. – Hebrews 12:1 (NIV)
You are fearfully and wonderfully made by God, so is everybody else. And as no two humans are the same, is also how no two people run the same race. Your assignment is different from that of your colleagues, your neighbours or even your siblings. When you consider what others have achieved which you are yet to, you start to feel unfulfilled. But the truth is that God makes everything beautiful according to His time table for you.
Be encouraged today, let God deal differently with you according to His purpose for your life. Don’t compare your relationship with Him to the one He has with another person. It’s your duty to strive, to nurture and to build yours with so that you can access His unique purpose for your life. Prayerfully run your race and have a fruitful day!
Confession: I run the race set before me and I will not derail from the purpose God has for me. I will finish strong!
