Pace Setter

IMG_0080

There are a lot of things (and relationships) that fight to be the pace setter for your life:

Your job
Your goals
Your family
Your church
Your significant other
Your health

The above vie for first place and then are complicated by the list below:

Fear of failure
People pleasing
Insecurity
Pride
The past

It is easy to see how your life can begin to feel like more of a blur than a blessing.

If you don’t choose your pace setter- the most urgent crisis will always beat out the rest.

But God wants to be the Pace Setter for your life.

Your only Pace Setter.

He wants to help you run your race at the right pace for you.

“What we’ve learned is this: God does not respond to what we do; we respond to what God does. We’ve finally figured it out.

Our lives get in step with God and all others by letting him set the pace, not by proudly or anxiously trying to run the parade.” (‭Romans‬ ‭3‬:‭27-28‬ MSG)

What would happen if you began to run your race at God’s pace and no one else’s?

What would your life look like?

What would need to be cut out?

What needs to be added?

Run Your Race

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)

It isn’t going to be easy.

It is going to take perseverance.

And you can’t compare your race with anyone else’s- it is yours, unique to you.

That is why you can’t look to anyone else but Jesus. He is the only one who can help you navigate it.

He knows the way you take. He knows what it will take and how to get you through the rough parts that will make you want to quit.

He knows what He has gifted you with and how to help you use it to bring glory to the Father.

Fix your eyes on Jesus and run your race.
