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.

Devotional

Philippians 3:10 AMPC (emphasis mine)
[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers]…

This passage is the way to possess supernatural power to run your race.

Just ask to know Him. That one ‘determined purpose’ of Paul – to know Jesus – God fulfills with greatest joy. To know Christ is to love Him beyond your self, beyond your dreams and wants. To love Jesus is to pursue the prize of Himself with Spirit-filled fervor.

All power of action issues from motive. The motive and energy, the steadfastness to run and keep running is only and always one thing: absolute Love for Jesus Christ. God will give you as much love for His Son as you want.

That divine love for Christ, above and beyond human capacity, will be the fire in your bones to live for His will, for the vision of Christ as the Supreme Prize. The zeal of love will ignite within you, ‘for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure’ (Phil. 2:13).
