About Let Series
LET. Wielded by the Holy Spirit, this tiny word had a huge impact on Martha’s life, and the adventure can be yours, too, if you just LET God be GOD.
…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…
The God-given RACE of life is a course, a prize, a power, a discipline, and a finish.
THE COURSE is entirely individual. We are in NO competition with other runners. Each must run his own race. Your special course is His glorious will for YOU (Colossians 1:9). We run together and encourage each other. But essentially, in the race of your destiny, it is only you and Jesus.
My dearest daughter, Julia, went through a cancer crisis and is now both well and healed. She said about having walked through it, “You don’t want to talk about it much.” I waited for her reason why. I wondered if it was frightening to speak of it. She quietly added, “It’s too precious.” That was a surprising thing to hear, that such a suffering was…“too precious” to speak of.
And I knew she meant her experience with the Lord Jesus as her personal Shepherd. Though many of us were vital to help and pray, in that dark valley it was her ‘race to run’ with Him alone. And she ran it in the power of His grace, His Word and His presence—into His victory.
2 Corinthians 9:15 AMPC
Now thanks be to God for His Gift [precious] beyond telling [His indescribable, inexpressible, free Gift]!
