And whoever shall compel you to go a mile, go with him two. Matthew 5:41 AKJV
MEDITATE AND DIGEST: FOLLOWING JESUS TO FINISH THE RACE
Your personal trainer might tell you, “Eight more. You can do it! You want great abs, right?”
God says, “Go. Follow Me. One more mile, Beloved.”
He’s not promising a tighter tush or flawless figure according to the world’s standards, but each time you choose to make another move in step with His Spirit He promises you will look more like Him.
So when everything in you wants to quit or say, “No!”, I pray that you will purpose in your heart to say, “Yes, Lord”, and then go with Him two. Move by His Spirit with feet fitted with the shoes of the Gospel of peace and a heart full of His love and patience. May you be blessed and refined as you do.
