A few mornings ago, I was listening to Snow Patrol on my MP3
Started drifting off
Song by song
My imagination taking over
Listening to that quiet whisper, inside,
When I came to ‘Run’
Just let the music and the words flood over my thoughts, emotions,
When that little whisper started to speak to me
“I have run the race for you!
You run in my finished work”
And there it was, that full assurance in my heart
In Christ the race isn’t mine, it’s God’s.
The race I run is IN HIM
The prize I run for is His finished work alive in me
Through every thought, action, belief and intention.
His thoughts become my thoughts
Hi actions become my actions
His Beliefs become my beliefs
His intentions become my intentions,
He has run the race for me
I press on to live in the fullness of all he has done
I press on to live in the fullness of who I already am
I press on to transform my mind into my New Creation life.
The race in Christ is a drowning into his ocean of grace
A race into the unforced rhythms of grace
A race to receive the gold medal of His victory alive in me
For as He is so now am I.
