“You don’t run races with just your legs victory or defeat happens in your head first”
We run with freedom, do you know what freedom is? It is the power or right to act, speak or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. Amazing right? I finally got a chance to watch a movie called Overcomer. It’s about a 15-year-old who was under the impression that she had no father and he didn’t want her. Low and behold she discovers that her father was alive and her grandmother lied about it because she thought she protecting her.
“You were running superbly who cut in on you, deflecting you from the true course of obedience”? (Gal 5:7)
Granma thought she was doing the best for her family but she was slowing her grandaughter's pace. Who is cutting in on your race? Have you lost your pace, destination, or strength? Is it you slowing yourself down? Thankfully Hannah was able to reconnect with her father and he records a message for her, guiding her through a 3-mile race. He mapped out the whole course for her especially since he was a runner when he was in school. He knew what to expect, he understood the pitfalls but he also understood the victory and success. Hannah gave it her all and won! God has given you the authority to run without hindrance or restraint. So disconnect from any situation that tries to slow down your flow. Believe and accept that you can run your God-given race because he has mapped this thing out for you!
Cheering for you on this journey!
