Prepare to run the race with swiftness. Now is the time of preparation so we can endure to the end of the race. In the middle of a race is not the time to prepare, the time is before we begin. Build up endurance and strength that you don’t faint in the middle. The Holy Spirit will be our trainer. As we run along the path He will be there to encourage and refresh us; giving nourishment to sustain us. The Lord will be at the end when we cross the finish line into victory and eternal glory.
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize?Run in such a way as to get the prize. 1 Corinthians 9:24
