Torch races?




Torch races? God sometimes put “objects” in our path. Sometimes he puts us on the run. We get tired and the burden becomes heavy. Finishing the race becomes increasingly a hardship and it comes to a point in the “race” when we simply don’t want to go on. We want out.


Think about it. Some races belong to the fleet and some to the strong; and some belong to those who are willing to endure all simply to finish at all. These are the torch races, the ones that are designed to test mind and body completely.


God’s Word tells us: “Do I have the strength of stone? Is my flesh bronze? Do I have any power to help myself, now that success has been driven from me” (Job 6:8-13).


Endurance contests, pitting the our will to stay the course and trust God will hold him up against our will to give up before it gets any worse; torch races that have little to do with how quickly and straight we run and everything to do with finishing.

“Heavenly Father, help me Lord, to use times of testing as an opportunity to grow in grace, and as a springboard to develop a deeper and more secure relationship with You. Forgive us when we complain, and help us to accept Your testing as a gift and not a burden. In Jesus name. 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
