 How Fast God

Wants To

Take You!

       Have you ever gone walking or jogging with someone and you couldn’t keep up?  They set the pace and it was just a bit too fast for you.  Or they went so far that you became too tired to keep up.  So you figured out that if you were going match their pace you had to get in better shape or get left behind. 

       I got tickled when I was reading about how this happened for a man named Dave who was training to do a 5K run.  He didn’t want to train by himself, so he took his wife out on a trail that they had enjoyed taking in the past.  Each time they would start out walking.  Then he would get her to pick up the pace with him to go faster. 

       One day when they were doing this, after about half a mile into the trail, they saw a young woman coming from the other direction.  Her ponytail was whipping back and forth.  Earbuds in.  Perfect exercise outfit on.  As she sprinted toward them, she was coming so fast, they had to jump out of the way as she blew right past them.

       Well, Dave decided he could not allow that.  He felt that he had to compete.  So he turned to his wife and said, “It’s time to pick up the pace.”  Soon they started going faster down the path.  After they had gone about half an hour, here came the same young woman.  He couldn’t believe it.  That meant she had been around the trail already once and was now lapping them. 

       He said to his wife, “It’s on now!”  He picked up the pace and was almost dragging his wife behind him.  So by the time they arrived at the end of the trail, he was feeling pretty good.  He had gone fast enough that the young woman would never catch up.  But all of a sudden, she appeared and blew past them again.  That made him downright mad.  He began to scream, “This is ridiculous.”  Then it dawned on him that if he was going to keep the same pace as that young woman, he was going to have to make a greater commitment to training. 

       God has set a pace for your life.  If you are going to keep up with it, you have to have the commitment level.  It takes spiritual commitment to make it.  That means you stay full of the Spirit of God.  Indulge in His presence and His Word so that it builds you up. 

       You see, God has a pace that He wants to take your life, but He can’t do all the things He wants to do with you and for you if you don’t keep up the pace with Him. 

       So if you don’t want to get left behind, and if you want to realize the desires of your heart that He’s placed there and see things accomplished, and walk into the miracle answers He has for you—KEEP THE PACE.  Make sure you have within you what you need from His Spirit to keep strong and have endurance and perseverance.  That’s what happens when you stay full of the Spirit of God.  You can endure until you finish and see God’s purpose fulfilled. 

       It’s when you try to set the pace for yourself that you can miss out on His timing.  You’re not able to see what He has for you to do and receive.  He must be allowed to determine the speed that things are going to go.

       Romans 3: 27, 28 tells us how this works.  It says, What we’ve learned is this: God does not respond to what we do; we respond to what God does.  We’ve finally figured it out.  Our lives get in step with God and all others by letting Him set the pace, not by proudly or anxiously trying to run the parade (MSG Version).  That’s our job—to get in step with God; not to ask Him to get in step with us.  We don’t get into pride and try to run the parade of our life. 

       Neither do we get into fear and become anxious and try to determine the speed things will go.  When we don’t have what we need yet, we may begin to feel He’s not keeping pace with us!  But the point is He is not supposed to keep pace with us. 

       We have to get in step with Him if we want to see His will fulfilled.  In order to do that, we have to be full of His Spirit.  Hear His voice and recognize the leading of the Spirit.  It’s as we stay full that we are able to persevere and endure to the end. 

       Oh, there’s so much that God does not want you to miss.  He has so many good things to do for you and with you.  Keep the pace.  Make the commitment to stay full so you can go fast enough.  You’ll be able to persevere and endure until you see the fulfillment of what He has ahead for you.  


A Spiritual Powerline to say out loud:

"I’M KEEPING PACE WITH GOD!"

Here is a powerful prayer to say out loud:            

       Lord, I’m ready to keep the pace with You.  I make that commitment today.  I want You to fulfill everything You want to do for me and with me.  So, I believe I will see growth and goodness and miracle answers come to my life.  In the name of Jesus.  Amen.

Just In Time!

“You stated in your correspondence that God was working behind the scenes on a job for me.  A company called me and offered me a job in [another state].  It was right on time because I was down to my last $1000 in the bank account.  Not enough to cover expenses here.  And God blessed me with a job with good medical insurance.  I am thankful for your prayers and understanding.”


No Sign of the Tumor!

“Thanks for your prayers and for standing with us.  God is [stopping] the bleeding from the tumor.  I went to the doctor to get a checkup and they cannot find any trace of where the tumor was.  Thanks so much.”
