Bumps? The Bible tells us that a Christian can have a problem bumping through life when our focus is on the wrong thing. That makes sense. Although we can’t ignore life’s obstacles, sometimes we can focus on them too much. Christians need to trust that God will steer them in the right direction.
Think about it. Men of faith are commended for their faith, yet often none of them receive what had been promised, since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.
God’s Word tells us: “Therefore, since we are summoned 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.” (Hebrews 12: 1-6).
We need to fly down this trail of life with zest and confidence knowing that we will fall, and will at times get hurt. As long as we stay focused on the goal, finishing the race in one piece in heaven, we’ll be OK! The art however isn’t competing; when you think about it, it’s living.
. “I pray today in Jesus name that when the uncertainties of life become our reality, help us dear Lord to hold on to our faith and not let go. If we cling tightly, the rope of faith will never fail us. Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
