Hold firmly to the word of life; then, on the day of Christ’s return, I will be proud that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless.Philippians 2:16
Hold firm. Have you ever had that feeling of holding onto something for dear life? When I was little, I remember attempting to climb across the monkey bars and getting halfway across before I fell. Right before I fell, I hung onto the bar as tightly as I could so I wouldn’t fall. No matter what I did I still fell.
The beautiful thing about God is that when we cling to him, he grabs hold of us and never let’s go. We can hold firmly to him because his Word is a firm foundation and never fails. We can run the race because he runs with us, alongside us even.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for the race. May I run the race well and pleasing in your sight. May I hold tight to you. Amen.
