Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


1 Corinthians 9:24 (NLT)
   Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win!

Father, I love that word, win, it never gives in to frustrating weariness, aimless hopelessness or helpless self-pity. It is refreshing, motivating, and stimulates the mind, body and soul. It is the goal of effort, the culmination of achievement and the crown of victory. It is the sweet fragrance of success and the joy of a purpose fulfilled. It is the goal, the sum and the apex of living.

Father, you define the meaning and the measurement of win. When it happens, how it happens and why it happens. And Father the focus of what it means to win is found in loving you and being faithful to your will. Nothing pleases you more or elicits greater praise than loving faithfulness. “Well done!’ the king exclaimed. ‘You are a good servant. You have been faithful………..” Luke 19:17 (NLT)

And you remind us Father how this is done in Proverbs 3:3-4 (NIV) “Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win………….”
Father I long for all of us to be able to say with the Apostle Paul: “….. I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.”
2 Timothy 4:7 (NLT)

That means we WIN!!!
