RUN YOUR RACE TODAY(1): Setting Aside Every Weight

This is the first article in a series on how to ‘Run Your Race Today’. This series will help you to run your race and rule your day! 

Imagine you are getting ready to run a marathon. Just before you step out to your mark someone gives you a back-sack full of books to carry along. How far do you think you will run before you are so tired you just give up or pass out? 

Many times in the Bible this life is likened unto a race. It’s not a sprint but a marathon. So the journey is far. That’s why we have to be very careful and discerning to who and what we get into. 

Today, many of you are tired and exhausted because you have been carrying a load that is too heavy to carry alone. Some of you are carrying a load you were never meant to carry. That is why you are exhausted, drained and even may want to just give up.

These weights can be relationships, activities, cares, sins, unforgivness, shame, guilt, etc. I’m not sure what it is. You may not know either. But nonetheless you are tired, exhausted, wanting to give up, or you just don’t feel you can go any further. 

Hebrews 12:1| “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 entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,”

No worries, Holy Spirit is here to help you. Glory to God! I encourage you today to come before Him with an open heart and ask Him to help you to set aside every weight so that you can run with endurance the race that is set before you today. Receive His help now and move forward with great speed and RULE YOUR DAY!
