The Lord has prepared you to run your race!

“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31

Years ago, I put on my shoes and headed to the front door. I was going for a jog around my neighborhood. It wasn’t just any jog; it was the one you take after recovering from surgery. The air felt like it was welcoming me back. I had been away, having a baby and healing from a c-section. I had been immersed in motherhood and making our new house into a home. I had been holding my daughter and going up and down the stairs checking on my children.

My body needed this run, so I began to run, pacing myself and controlling my breathing. I didn’t expect much because I knew I hadn’t run for so long. When I got halfway around the neighborhood, my brain told me I was tired and should stop, but I continued pushing forward. I tuned out the thoughts in my head telling me to quit, and I kept running, telling myself if I made it this far, I could make it even farther. And I did. I finished.

As I approached my house, the Lord began to teach me as He always does through ordinary life experiences. I didn’t think I could make it halfway around the block, but what I didn’t know was God had been preparing me the whole time. While carrying my daughter for months, He was strengthening my arms. And every time I ventured up and down the stairs, He was building the muscles in my legs. I was simply living my life, and He was preparing me to run my race without quitting.

I prophesy to you now: You will run and not get weary. You will walk and will not faint. With every good and bad experience, God has been preparing you all along to run your race without quitting. You will mount up with wings like an eagle and soar! You are being strengthened as you live your life. When your mind tells you to quit, you will say, “No, I’m going to keep going. If I made it this far, I could go even farther. I’m going to finish my race.” And you will by the grace of God.
