Day 316 –
Fight the Good Fight and Finish the Race with even Greater Faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
Some days are hard as soon as I turn over in my bed and slip my feet out of the covers.
It’s as though a war begins in my head, a spiritual one of course. And while this war is going on I’m still trying to run the marathon, I call life.
Do you ever feel this way? Do you ever start the day just waiting for it to end? Or maybe you are hoping today was just a dream and you waiting to wake up from it?
I’ve felt this way one too many times.
Thankfully, on these days I put all my dependence on God to get me through and my faith grows by leaps and bounds.
The fight and the race can be draining, and when you hit mile 20 in the marathon you might be ready to give up But instead you fight on. As you round that last corner and finally finish the race, the joy you feel coursing through your mind and body.
You have fought a hard fight and amid all the trials you have the kept the faith. The greatest reward of all is waiting for you at the very end, but along the way, those people that watched as you fought and ran with renewed strength, were able to see what the Lord can do and will do, not just for you but for them as well.
They will witness your faith and your behavior and they too will believe because of the strength they see in you. So don’t give up, no matter what comes your way.
Keep running and fighting on, finishing the race strong and keeping your Faith even stronger.
