THE RACE 

 

The Race Our Life

Life is a race I know you must have heard it time’s without number but read this.The race of life is inevitable, it can not be avoided, it cannot be skipped except a person commits Suicide, a person that commits suicide is a person that has reached the highest state of Stupidity and Foolishness, because it is the must absorb thing to think about not to talk about carrying it out. Back to The Race, a race is a place of running you can not walk in a race, you can not crawl, you cannot be talking during a race or else you will gas out you run with all concentration. The Race is not to the swift according to Ecclesiastes 9:11. 

Determination, perseverance, stamina, Focus, Goal all these are highly needed to run the Race of life. 

DETERMINATION

When you run to certain point and you are tired yet you are determined to reach the end so you continue running. Determination is making up you mind that I must get to this point or that point. I must run to the finish line.

PERSEVERANCE

When you run the Race of life you need to Persevere if not you will give up,  perseverance is the force that keeps you going in The Race it makes you not to loss faith and hope of reaching  the finish line.

STAMINA

Your Stability is seen here, no matter how hard life throughs things at you, you are still standing,  no matter the hardship you are not shaking even if you shake you are not saying I Quit. You are still standing strong and firm moving towards the finish line.

FOCUS

Now running  this long race you need  focus the Bible says in

PHIL 2:14

I press on towards the goal to win the {Heavenly}  prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 

Having the price at heart  makes us to be focus the reward in mind will give is the push to continue  also,  

What does focus do? 

It makes you stay on track,

it makes you avoid  distractions,

it makes you to see what is ahead on time (when you run and you are approaching and obstacle if you are not focus you will run right into it but a Focus person can by pass it and move on).

GOAL

 This makes you have in mind that yes there is something ahead, it makes you plan your strategy to run if you should be extremely fast, go with a minimal speed or run with a very slow speed, it makes you plan, it makes you know the direction to take. Everybody was not call to run the same race some where called  to run

A Relay race – They run and when the get to a point the hand the baton to some one else to continue  like in the case of Elijah and Elisha,  Elijah handed over to Elisha,  Elisha would have handed over to Gehazi but he was nowhere to be found he lost focus just at the early part of his race. To me I think Gehazi ended his race before it even started. Because  Elisha did two times The amount of Miracles Elijah did that means Gehazi would  have Tripleed it up but he Lost out. Another example Moses and Joshua, Moses passed the baton of leading the people to the promised land to Joshua and he finished the Race perfectly. 

Short Race – Some people are not meant to live as long as Methuselah on earth Jesus didn’t stay till he was old before He was taken up to Heaven immediately His assignment was accomplished He went To God. Use your time meaningfully. It doesn’t matter how short but how well you lived.

Long Races –  In as much as there are people who will not live long, there are also people who will live long, maybe they have a longer or complex mission on earth. This set of people needs More Grace  to carry on. For Example Abraham and Sarah wouldn’t have died even at the age they died if Isaac was not born.

Run your Race Well, don’t copy others style of running you never can tell if you are running the same race.  A lot of people fail in life not because of lack of understanding  but because they try following others style, you are unique from that your friend despite you guys are best friends.
