Keeping In The Race

1 Corinthians 9:24.. Know ye not that they which run in a race run all , but one receiveth the prize ? So run , that ye may obtain.

As I was meditating on the scripture above ,  I was thinking about the race for the prize of the high calling for every believer. The obstacles and stumbling blocks we face in our Generation , are just phenomenal. The pain in the world today is just overwhelming . It's going to take God intervening to even make a start where to begin. The law of sowing and reaping is running it's course and its snowballing rapidly. Thought's of families splitting , Job losses , Children needing parents that's not going to be coming home . How do you tell or explain to a child , the adulteress affair that conceived them , is why Mommy or Daddy won't be around ? It would only stir the sordid mess up even worse.
Yet people are confronted with these type of issues daily. The scoffers and judge mental folks would tell us , the disciples and early church , lived above these issues. [ Only when it's them, it's different.] All of that sounds Holy and good , but times are just different now. Eccl.3:1 To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose... We are dealing with different Evil's , being hit with an onslaught by hell unprecedented , living in the end times. Satan knows his time is short and working over time. It's hard enough to just stay in the race, much less win it , and yet The word tells us to keep running. Well the good news is the Word say's he will never leave nor forsake us. Heb.13:5  If we grasp that and all his other promises we can not only stay in the race , but we can win it. In all the years I have been in or around other believer's I have never heard a report that God fails. He has not fallen from the throne , but is in total control of the world affairs and we shall obtain the Prize of eternal life . Keep running the race my friends , we are almost home.
God bless you on your journey !
