Sometimes we think we know who we are and where we are going. We grow up knowing what society says about us and we let what they say determine the intensity of our vision. We get so used to human approval such that we even expect it to validate our worth. We end up going or doing what we think that it’s right according to society and end up not following our hearts. We suppress our dreams to suite our circumstances, turn a blind eye to our visions, a deaf ear to our calling. We press on and continue toiling in order for us to fulfill the society painted vision. One that involves no passion, no peace, no joy, no rest but debts, cheating to go up, strife, bitterness, pride etc…
When is this going to end? Being taken daily to the grave with your purpose not even acted upon? Living a false life just to please others who don’t even congratulate you when you’re at the finish line but always there to discourage you and find faults in every step that you take?
You are you, you are unique, each and every one of us has a brick to add to the wall of the life and you can only play your part, no one else can do it better than you.
It is not too late to begin your race, drop off the wrong race number you have been given, wear yours, put on new gear, new eyes, new ears, and definitely new rules and new speed.
As you take your position getting ready to begin, take up the whole armour of God and clothe your inner man, put on the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit, let the eyes of your heart be opened and most of all put on the garment of praise for that will be your strength!
And finally as the race starts remember to stay on your lane, don’t look on the sides but look forward to where you are going, as the race progresses and you feel like giving up, put on that praise garment and wear it so tight that it suppresses matters of the flesh, always make sure that your armour is in place and that you always communicate to your Assistant Coach- the Holy Spirit.
So are we ready to run our race?
