“You were running the race so well. Who has held you back from following the truth?”
Discouraging things can happen when you follow Jesus. Life doesn’t always go the way you hoped it would go. Tragedies befall you. People let you down. You ask questions that go unanswered, and sometimes you wonder if you can keep going.
But whom did you sign up to follow? I signed up, if you will, to follow Jesus. Jesus always has been what He promised to be for me. He’s never failed me once. He’s never let me down. And He’s the author and finisher of my faith, which means that God finishes what He starts.
He started a work in your life, and He wants to continue it. But for that to happen, you need to keep your eyes on Jesus, who ran His race for you.
