Here are few thoughts about Life:
- Life is a Journey
- Life is full of mysteries
- Life on earth is time bound
- Many things come to distract Life from its purpose
- Life is a race
- Life isn’t competition with people
Life is a Race but each individual has different course to follow which eliminates the concept of Competition. The only competition that exist is with yourself (or myself). You were created with unique skills and abilities for distinct purpose so we can’t compete in anyway.
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:(2 Timothy 4:7, KJV)
This race has prize tag when you cross your finished line. The prize is so great that your adversary will try anything possible to distract you every minute. He wants you to bury your talent till the Master comes.
Here is the main thing:
The race is structured in such a way that you can’t finish with your own strength. You need God. When you recognize the God Factor (G) in your RACE, You activate GRACE.
If you have played racing games before, GRACE is like Boosters in racing games. It releases your supernatural power to do extraordinary things you couldn’t do on your own.
Therefore when your Race turns to GRACE, Life becomes easy as the Holy Spirit begins to work in you daily to outsmart your adversary and his strategies.
Race is full of struggles but GRACE comes with Peace and Ease. Where people fail to cross, you triumph. You don’t get stuck in Life and everything you do prospers.
Be encouraged to recognize the God Factor in your Journey (Personal life, family, marriage, business, academics, career, etc) and I can assure you that your Journey will be Graceful.
