You Have A Race to Run Too!

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.
1 Corinthians 9:24 (NIV)

I'm not a runner, shoot I don't even exercise, but I know a thing or two about what runners do. One is they prepare their bodies for the race, weeks and sometimes months of running long distance. They eat mostly healthy, keep their bodies hydrated and the keep a positive attitude. They never say, that's just too far or too steep of a hill. Nope, their mentally ready and physically ready for the challenge.

Now I for one, may not exercise (but I do keep in shape by eating right, most of the time), but when it comes down to preparing by spirit man, I know my mind and heart has to be prepared through the word of God.

I know the word needs to be down in my heart in abundance. Like a runner needs their water, I need the word of God full force. I need to walk by faith. I need to trust in God. I need the word going in and out of my spirit day in and night.

As Christians we're running our race daily so we have to be prepared through the word of God. Through our relationship with Christ and our faith!

So as you approach tomorrow ask yourself, have you prepared your spirit?

Many Blessings~
