"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever."
-1 Corinthians 9:24-25 NIV
Run. Go into strict training. The race the Lord our God is calling you to is not of this world. Rather, it’s a race that brings heaven to earth. Therefore, endure the strict training of the wilderness. The Lord our God is creating perseverance in you. The Lord is teaching you to draw from His strength, power, peace, safety, love, and all that He is. Because when it’s time for you to run, you’ll be running in such a way as to get the prize. - 1 hour ago
