Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.Ephesians 3:20
We all have those times where our race or training run was better than expected and, of course, we have those challenging races or running events where things may not have turned out as well as we hoped.
As believers, we should make sure to give glory to God after each activity whether it’s during times of greatness or times of underperformance.
Our ability to put one foot in front of another is only by His grace in giving us the opportunity to do so.
In doing so we allow the Lord to achieve greatness through us because of our wholehearted faith.
As we continue to give God praise for every exercise activity, practice doing so in your life journey.
Allow the Lord to lead and guide, so that others will see that you are resilient in your faith not only in your performance in a specific activity, but in your everyday life.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
We must ask ourselves, how am I responding to difficulties?
Are we attempting to handle each problem on our own or do we quickly give these obstacles over to God to guide and lead us?
Living deliberately for His will to be done in all we do will lead to a life of exceptional living.
It will showcase how much can be accomplished through us when we let the Lord have His way with us.
From there abundant joy in the Lord awaits.
For we walk by faith, not by sight.Ephesians 2:8
1. Are you ready to give glory to God in all of your running activities? Do you already do so?
2. Tell us a time you gave God complete control in a difficult time. How did everything turn out?
3. Think of ways you can encourage others to also praise God in all things. What scripture can you share?
