Don’t Get Distracted

Have you gotten distracted and discouraged by how difficult things are for you today?
Does if feel like nothing is going right, nothing is working out and you are wondering what is going on?

The New Testament book of Hebrews brings a powerful word of encouragement when you are struggling. The author writes, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.” (Hebrews 12: 1-2 NIV)

Who are these witnesses that you are surrounded by?

They are the faithful ones who risked, lost, fought for their faith and didn’t give up when things got difficult. They are ones who lived the lives they were given, even when it seemed impossible to go on. They are stories of those who threw off fear as well as anything that stopped them from going after God’s call on their life.

Their stories are for you and me. My friend, don’t get distracted by how difficult your race is today and focus on why God has called you to it.  Why are you running? If it is for any other person or reason than Jesus, you are running the wrong race for the wrong reason. Focus on Him and run your race.
