Races Set Before Us- Igniting God’s Power

Races Set Before Us- Igniting God's PowerSing praises to the Lord, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping my tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning. (Psalm 30:4,5 ESV)


Forward Friday! Let’s say this together…The Lord’s favor is for a lifetime. Yes, we have times of weeping, even seasons…joy is promised to return. I do love to sing praises- how about you. The last few days as I simply stand amazed with all wrong in this world…this melody began within…Oh Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder, Consider all the world Thy hands have made; I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy power throughout the universe displayed…Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee. Who am I ready to throw my hands up and think this calling of mine is insufficient…it’s never been about me, it has always been about God’s power working through me, releasing Biblical Truth in a world gripped in societal confusion.


God’s creation is made beautiful through Him and all can be made complete. Paul’s battle of not doing what he wants, yet doing the very thing he hates. We can every good intention of doing good and miss being successful, succumbing to the very thing we did not want to do. For me, it’s prayer first thing in the morning. I read a devotion immediately, yet, this is not like genuine prayer time. An image came earlier while praying…Missed prayer time in the morning is like horses lined up in the gates, ready to race…and my gate dropped with no jokey. Therefore, imagine a horse with no jokey trying to win the race set before him.


Moving forward, we all have races to win. None of us want incomplete races- I hear that is no fun. My theory during exercising yesterday- while two girls discussed their bruises from past weekend races…It’s safer staying home, baking cookies. 🙂 We do not want to cheat our races, either. Staying focused is key- keeping eyes on the prize. In this case, prize is eternity in Heaven. While on earth…apply God’s principles, igniting God’s power and with God’s favor for a lifetime…a combination for a win-win. Be encouraged!
