Get Ready To Run

Many of us set goals for ourselves as we started the New Year. We had plans that we were going to accomplish some things and establish some things this year, because this was going to be the best year of our lives. In the midst of having a great year we were hit with a virus that seemingly threw everything off course. The goals and the plans that we had for this year were either put on hold or forgotten about all together. We cannot allow a pause in life to hinder the vision that we were given, because when God gave us the vision He knew about the pause. The Scripture reminds us to, write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. I encourage you today to revisit the vision and the goals that you had for this year. Go back and read those things that you had written down, so you can remind yourself of those things, and begin to once again run with the vision that God has given you. It may be more challenging in this time, but it is not impossible to accomplish the goals that The Lord has given you. It may be difficult to make some of those things happen right now, but you have to plan for when this is over that you will once again be ready to run with the vision that God has given you. In this time of pause, it is also a time of preparation for you so you can be prepared to receive the victory. I thank God for the vision He gave me to start this year, and although I may be in pause, I know God has me in preparation for the great things He has in store for my life. Since I will run with the vision that God has given me I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”


Lord remind me of the vision you gave to me, and prepare me to run with it so I can get the victory and you can get the glory. In Jesus Name Amen.
