Will you pay the price to finish the mission? Of those who entered Navy Seal training only 17 percent finished. 100 percent that includes both those that quit and those who succeeded said, “Everything they asked me to do I didn’t want to do!”
In Navy Seal Training 83% quit, they had what it takes to get in the program, but they dropped out. How many sign up for the Christian life only to be overwhelmed and taken out by discouragement, disillusionment, and defeat? Far too many! So what’s the secret to running the race? Do whatever Jesus asks you to do, even if you think its too hard…do it anyway! Trust His leadership.
Hebrews 12:1-2″ Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Salvation is free but faith in Christ demands everything of us. In our Christian walk of faith, God often asks us to do things that we don’t want to do and are not easy! Like a great Coach or Training God pushes us beyond our own self-imposed limits. He truly knows what we are created for and capable of doing. When he asks you to rise up and do something that is difficult or challenging remember. He believes in you! He has given you all you have need of, and His Holy Spirit dwells within you. Holy Spirit is the best teacher. You can do this, in fact, if you don’t quit I guarantee you that you will run the race with endurance. He won’t let you fail, just keep clinging to Jesus!
