Who cut in on you?

"You were running a good race. Who cut in on you and kept you from obeying the truth?" (Galations 5:7, NIV).

I woke up this morning with this verse on my mind. I'm been thinking about it all day. There are times in my life that I am running my race with fervor, and times that I stop for the least little thing and then never get back to the main thing. In one instance, I know what happened to stop me but I have not gotten back in the race. I love that Galations asked the question of "who cut in on you?" My question is, what am I going to do about it?

This verse deals with not obeying the word of God. If God has told us to run a race, then we must keep running! If we fall, we are to get up and run again. It doesn't mean we go back to the beginning, it means that we don't just stay on the sidelines. Even when it is not easy, we must go onward to what Christ has called us to do.

I don't know what race God has called you to but I pray that you will keep running. Regardless of who cut in on you, run your race to win. The enemy comes in the form of people and feeling. Anything that has stopped us needs to be put aside.

Let's run our races to win!
