There was this pastor who endured great criticism and slander from the public. The criticism hurt him deeply because his reputation was at stake, and the narratives being told were not true. So he began defending himself to his critics.
Then one night God gave him a dream. In the dream, he was in a stadium, running a race with other runners. There were people in the stands cheering them on. He came to a section where, in the audience, the people began to criticize and verbally attack him. In response, he stopped running and began to defend himself.
God said to him, "Son, you have stopped running your race to argue with people who are not even in the race."
God has called each of us to run our race with endurance and perseverance and to fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Each of us must run our own individual race and not compare ourselves to others.
What is your goal in running the race of a lifetime? Listen to the latest episode of Wear Scriptures Podcast on Charisma Podcast Network for more about running your race with endurance and perseverance.
