Finish Strong - Beloved Women - March 6, 2023
READ: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (2 Timothy 4:7 NIV)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: We're called to do a lot of things our flesh may not want to do initially. In those times, we choose Christ over our fleshly desires because we know Jesus is ultimately better for our well-being. This is why we sacrifice in order to experience the full life Christ promises, but sometimes we don't do this.
Sometimes we find ourselves just wanting to quit living for Christ. This may be because we have grown tired or lost perspective. Although it is tempting to give up I encourage you not to. We are running to get the prize so keep going until you do.
This whole race is about your faith. Will you keep the faith until the end? Some days will be easier than others but don’t quit because the race you're running is a good one. It's worth it. Never give up and finish your race strong.
PRAY: Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the victory that I have in Your Son Jesus Christ. I pray for strength to endure the race You have called me to. In Jesus Christ’s Name, I pray. Amen.
REFLECT: How is God encouraging you to finish your race?
