Run Your Own Race

Did you realize that God has a plan laid out for our lives that is especially suited to all the specific details of our own unique gifts, conditions and circumstances.  It is a race that is marked out just for us.

1 Corinthians 12:1 says, “And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

When I go running with my teenage children, I have to concede that they are able to run at a considerably faster pace than I.  However, that does not negate the importance of me finishing “my race”.  The challenge for me is different for them and I am perfectly comfortable with that reality.

It is the same in life.  We are all equipped with different gift sets for very important reasons.  The people we can influence and reach for the Gospel are depending on us to finish “our race”.  So we shouldn’t compare our race with others.  Our calling is significantly singular and God wants us to follow in the steps He has set before us.

Your race is important.  Be sure to finish at your pace.  You are empowered to succeed, and a crown is waiting for you at the finish line!

Selah,

Jeff
