Run without ceasing

Are you tired of running the race?  Don’t give up or become weary for the prize is worth the race.  

Yes, you will fall at times, but you won’t be defeated, there will be times when you will become extremely exhausted and helpless, however, know that the Lord will never leave you nor forsake.  The Holy Spirit’s ongoing presence will empower and energize you with his power to overcome all the obstacles that come against you.  Just as David sought the Lord when he was in his weakest and lowest moments, we should do the same, for he knew that his merciful and forgiving God would provide him with a new refreshed spirit.  

Seek the Lord with all your heart, mind and soul for those who live under the protection and stay in the shadow will say, “He is my fortress, my place of safety, he is my God, and I will always trust him.  Keep running without ceasing for the he will keep you safe from the secret traps of the enemy for he will spread his wings over you keeping you secure, Psalm 91 Amen! “

Run for the prize for this prize lasts forever, as you are not merely running for a tangible metal, no not at all, you are running for the crown of life.  When you become weary think about being in the presence of the Lord for all eternity knowing that you will forever be happy and never suffer again.  For we know what we are experiencing now is all temporary, therefore, don’t lose hope remain strong in your faith.  Ask the Lord to renew your strength and provide you with new blessings for he will show you his saving power. 

Rejoice, for the Lord loves the praises of his people for he is worthy of all our worship.  For his glorious power and mighty strength will bring us to the end of our journey to live with him forever.  What a wonderful prize this is to know that one day WE will be with our High Priest, Prince of Peace, our personal Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ – the Word – the I Am – God, himself.  Our finite minds cannot even imagine how glorious this will be. Amen!  For now, we can at least fantasize about it until the Lord's return.

Revelation 21:1-7
A New Heaven and a New Earth
21 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”  He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.
