Topic: Running The Race pt.3 [Rhema for Living April 9th 2019 daily devotional]
TEXT: Hebrews 12 vs 1 [kjv]
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Christianity is a race, walking with God is a journey and heaven is the destination. In the scripture above, Apostle Paul pointed out four things that matter when we run.he
- We must run with the consciousness that we are compassed with great cloud of witness: Running this race you must understand and realize that you are surrounded and being watched. The bible didn’t say a great crowd but a great cloud
The witnesses are in the cloud! Another version says, There are spectators on the grandstand. Meaning that as you begin to follow God, there spectators on the grandstand watching you from heaven
Deborah is watching! Hannah is watching! Apostle Paul and several others. You may be looking for a child and are not serious about it, but Hannah is looking from heaven and saying to her self , When i wanted a child, i had to get desperate, it got to a point that i told my husband i was not coming home until God gives me something
When you are faced with situation such as Joseph was with Mrs potiphar, remember that Joseph is watching. He is saying, despite all that Mrs Potiphar did, i stood my ground with God and fled even though it resulted in my going t prison.
You must make make your mind to make an impact in your relationship with God because on th grandstands the saints are watching. Some with their heart bleeding because of the unusual lukewarm relationship some Christians with god
I pray for you today, you will not fail those that have gone ahead of you!
My father, as i begin to pray, i will not fail in my christian Race
