Keep Running

Galatians 5:7 "You were running a good race. Who cut in on you and kept you from obeying the truth? 8That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you. 9"A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough."

There is nothing more discouraging than running and having someone cut in on you. It not only hinders your progress but may also cause you to stumble and fall. It only takes a small compromise to lead to a great fall. The bible tells us that life is like a race and we are to run that race with perseverance. To keep our eyes on the prize and run in such away that we win!

In this race we call life, there are very real deterrents which come from the enemy of our soul that wants to cut in on us and stop us from running this race. To not only distract us but to disrupt us as well and even knock us down. We have to make certain that we take heed to the advice to keep our eyes on the finish and to persevere so that we can run right through the obstacles. Yes, we may get knocked down. We may even get tripped up by some things we did not see. But don't worry; just get right back up and keep on running. These obstacles are not from God. It's true, to win you must begin. To finish you must keep running!
