We need to count the cost when we are running the race for the Lord Jesus Christ. Paul knew about this and he said in Philippians 3.12 (NKJV) — “Not that I have already attained,[a] or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.”
This is not a one-time event, this is a lifestyle and I am realising and the Lord has shown me very clearly, that as I am getting older, I need to pace myself a lot better if I am to complete the calling that He has put on my life.
The physical strength which I had as a young man, I do not have any longer and therefore I really need to do the job to make a good decision the first time, for I no longer have the strength to do it more than once.
We ask the Holy Spirit to please strengthen us so that we can act our age, that we ca do things correctly, using wisdom that God has given to us and the experience that we have picked up over many years.
We need to sit down and count the cost carefully before we commit to any work that God has given to us. That is how we complete the race and take hold of that for which Christ Jesus has called you and I.
Jesus bless you
