Pro level fighters have a corner man. After each round they head to the corner to not only rest, but to get the encouragement and directions they need to do better in the next round. God is your corner man. He will speak life into you.
A week ago I told you what Isaiah 40:31 says but it's helpful to keep being reminded of this.
They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
This process of The Full 40 takes time and patience. "They that wait upon the Lord..." Waiting is often the hard part.
We want results now.
I've helped people prepare for marathons, triathlons and compete in body building where they get on a massive stage for everyone to judge them. With all three of these events you will hear people that observe these individuals say, "How did they get to that level?"
They did the right thing each day for many months and by doing that they were able to perform or compete at a high level.
Remind yourself of what your goal is. How do you want to feel and how do you want to be able to perform. More about this in my next blog.
Make it a great day of focus and defining your goal.
Love, Pastor Max
