Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize?

    Keep your focus on your end goal, and seek the promises and the dreams set within your bosom.

    Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the treasure? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. (1 Cor 9:24, NKJV)

    So many people today spend valuable time, energy and money trying to make everyone around them happy. They require to be authorized, recognised and affirm. There’s nothing wrong with that, but you can’t let the opinions of others become your focus or distract you from what God has in store for you.

    When a professional runner races, they don’t look around at the other runners, wondering how they are doing.  No, they have their mind focused on one thing: the finish line. They don’t waste valuable energy comparing themselves or wondering what’s going on around them. Instead, they focus on winning the prize. This is how we should be in life — focused on winning the prize of the victor’s crown in life.

    My challenge to you today is: run your race.  Don’t let people squeeze you into their mold.  Remember, you don’t have to try to play up to people. You don’t have to worry about what everyone else thinks. As long as you’re being true to what God has put in your heart, don’t look to the left or to the right. Stay focused on your goals. Run your race to win and honour God in everything that you do!

    Father, today and every day I set my focus on you. I declare that I will not look to the left or to the right, but I will fix my eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith. Give me wisdom and grace as I dedicate every area of my life to You in Jesus’ name! Amen.
