If You Run

If You Run

Have you ever faced a challenge so big that you were tempted to run from it? Fear invaded your thoughts when you looked at it, and you found yourself saying “there is no way I can do this.” If so, you are not alone. Moses and Gideon are just two of God’s leaders who wrestled with fear, and Abraham and Elijah wrestled with discouragement. If you struggle with either fear or discouragement, go ahead and run; just make sure you run in the right direction. If you run, run to the Father. Go quickly, fall on your knees, cast yourself on Him, and call out to Him for help. He is waiting for you.

I call on the Lord in my distress, and he answers me.—Psalm 120:1

Prayer: O Lord our God, hear us when we cry out to You. Receive us in Jesus’ name, and help us in our need. Be exalted in our thoughts, words, and actions, we ask in the name of Jesus, amen.
