There is a power held in simple, mundane consistency. That power can permeate our lives in every arena. We are gaining ground when we consistently move forward with no reward, and no evidence of victory. It is by faith that we trudge on. When we wield what is in our hands for the glory of God and the good of others, the Lord not only makes something beautiful come of it, but He also brings miracles through it.
The race that we are running requires endurance. The bible tells us specifically to cast off every weight that is holding us back, And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. God has a specific plan for each of us and taking daily steps to position ourselves for obedience is critical in walking that out. Instead of looking for a grand event where that plan comes to life, I have learned am learning to see it as a lifestyle of obedience where I walk out my worship in all that I do...even in the difficulties of my monotonous, often taxing, daily routine.
