Like the hawk, we are here to go after the prize. The prize of our salvation and sanctification. The prize of leading and winning souls to Christ. The prize of working and serving the Lord. The prize of building our relationship with Him. And even though things come our way that may or may not be danger at first glance, a temptation, a threat to our quiet times, to our work, to our relationship, to our sanity, we must not loose focus on the prize for which he has called us heavenward. You have to know when the Lord well enough to know what is after you to destroy you and know what is after you to grow you.
Thank you Lord that everywhere I go, you are there.
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
