“Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize?

Run in such a way that you may win.”  (NASB)

 I Corinthians 9:24

Seasoned marathon runners have learned to focus on endurance, not just speed.  They are in the race for the long haul.  When things get tough and circumstances seem impossible and obstacles come too often, you need staying power.  What is the secret to this staying power?  Hebrews 12:1-2 implies that you should never lose sight of your goal.  You will only endure the pain when you have something to look forward to.  Success comes only when you are committed and

have the passion to cross the finish line.

DECLARATION:  Get your eyes on the goal, run to win, keeping your

focus on Jesus and you will cross the finish line.
