Training for the Race of Life……Day 71 (Unlimited)

Training for the Race of Life…..Day 71
I decided to get my long run for this week over with early on in the week. I had somewhat of a less busy day today so I spent almost 2 hours running and got in around 10 miles. I had hoped to do more but with the week I had last week, I just ran out of energy. As someone put it, “my get up and go got up and went.”
We do have limitations don’t we. A song that was released recently talks about our limitations, “we’ve got to eat and need sleep in the evenings.” We are limited but we are limited by God’s design. He made us and He made us good but He made us with limitations other wise we would be like God.
I may get tired, I may need rest, I may have to eat and all of those things but God doesn’t. He is unlimited 100%, all powerful. 100 percent amazing. No wonder we can always rely on Him and always trust in Him. He isn’t limited. He is never tired.
When Elijah took on the prophets of Baal in the Old Testament and challenged them to perform a sacrifice to their gods, a sacrifice that wasn’t consumed because their “gods” didn’t exist, he taunted them by saying, “yell for your gods louder perhaps they are asleep or out of the room (my paraphrase). In other words your “gods” are limited. They were because they were non-existent. Our God however is 100 percent alive, 100 percent real, 100 percent unlimited. That is why we can trust in Him.
He is also 100 percent faithful. A song says, “Forever God is faithful, forever God is strong,….” and He really is. Faithful, unchanging, unlimited. He is God, and it is He that has made us and not we ourselves.
Because of that He is the one who can trust in and the one we can follow.
So keep running with Jesus but remember you are limited (so don’t overdo it). God however isn’t, so hold on to Him as He leads you on this journey of life.
