Continuing to Train — Being Consistent
In the Word
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change (James 1:17).
Of the Word
In order to gain the most benefits from running, you must be consistent. If you run a few miles on Monday, but don’t run again until the next Monday, you will find that reaching your fitness goals will be hard. Work, family, illness, or weather may interfere with your plans, but carving out time to run consistently is important.
God knows something about consistency. In fact, from In the beginning, the first words of Genesis, to the last Amen in Revelation, God has been nothing but consistent. He always has and always will continue to condemn sin. He always has and always will continue to reach out with forgiveness and life to those stuck in sin. His words never change. And God sent Jesus, the Word made flesh, into the world demonstrating that He can be trusted because He always keeps His promises.
Walking with my Lord
Dear God, when I am frustrated by unfairness and injustice, help me to continue in prayer, knowing that You are just and good. Thank You for giving me hope. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
