RUN TO OBTAIN!
FROM THE FATHER’S HEART
1 Corinthians 9:24 (KJV)
24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
So run…! Run in such a way that you will obtain.
Everyone is running in the world; everyone is running in life. Whether you want to or not, you are running.
There are four kinds of runners in the world:
(1) Those that are running from their problems.
(2) Those that are running with their problems.
(3) Those that are running to their purpose.
(4) Those that are running with their purpose.
God empowers you to run, but how are you running your own race?
Samson ran with his problems and died eventually.
Ruth ran to her purpose; eventually, she got there.
The Gibeonites ran from their problems and entered into a generational bondage.
Paul ran with his purpose, David ran with his purpose, Esther ran with her purpose, even Jesus, Our Lord, ran with His purpose.
5 Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, But a body You have prepared for Me.
6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin, You had no pleasure.
7 Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come — In the volume of the book it is written of Me — To do Your will, O God.'”
May you run to obtain as you run with your purpose in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Till next week, go and win with Jesus.
