2 Timothy 4:7 (ESV)
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
For most, the thought of working hard is something we are committed to doing someday, but right now it’s not a priority. We think that when we get that dream job, that leadership position, that amount of money, then we will work hard, read the Bible more, and be generous. However, being the person God has called you to be in the future starts with you right now. Stop pressing the snooze button on your life; if you wait for tomorrow, tomorrow may never come. God wants to start working in and through your life starting now.
Rather than wait for tomorrow, we must allow God access to our lives today. There are things you can do starting today that the future version of yourself will thank you for.
Take a look at your life and see what needs to change and what daily disciplines you need to introduce in order to become all that God has called you to be, and do all that God has called you to do?
No matter your age, don’t use it as an excuse to keep hitting the snooze button on your life. Train hard so that you can say with Paul, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7).
Dear Lord, help us to fight the good fight and finish the race I a way that is pleasing and honoring to You. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
