American Ninja Christian
My wife and I enjoy watching American Ninja Warrior. I don’t know if you’re familiar with the show, but it’s about athletic men and women running these seemingly impossible obstacle courses. I watch it and think to myself: How do they do that? How do they get past those things and keep going?
I was in prayer recently, and God spoke this to my heart: You know, life is an obstacle course. The enemy, the world, will put many obstacles in your way. They will try to bring you down, make you stumble, cause you to fall. But, if you trust in me, and do not give up, I will see you to the finish line.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
The Christian life is NOT an easy walk to the finish line. It’s an obstacle course, some might say a minefield. However, I have learned that if I do not give up on Jesus or myself, I will eventually get past the obstacles.
“…truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20
No matter what obstacles are thrown at you, God is there with you, running alongside you, helping you over and through. Take His hand, don’t let go, and you WILL make it to the finish.
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith”. -the Apostle Paul, 2 Tim. 4:7
