Sometimes we get a big head. We think we're "all that" and truly worthy of praise and attention.
Then life comes and hits us in the face. SMACK.
I feel like I'm a three year old pulling my hair out, kicking and screaming.
"I don't wanna! I don't wanna!"
"My grace is sufficient for you, my power is made perfect in weakness." - 2 Corinthians 12:9
Suddenly...peace sets in. His power is made in our weakness. Wow!
"But....I can't do this on my own...Help?"
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." -Hebrews 12:1
I don't want to be held down; He says to throw off everything that hinders! (I'm reminded of a song that goes "and it's hard to dance with the devil on your back, so shake him off!")
Let us run with perseverance.
I want to run for God.
How about you?
