Psalm 132 - 134.
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us. Hebrews 12 :1.
Child of God, have this consciousness that people are witnesses to you. Our anchor text says, knowing we are surrounded, there are people that are watching you. Even if you will not run for yourself, run because of the people that shared their blood for this same race you are running today. The saints that have gone ahead are watching you, the sinners are watching you to see how you will fail. You have embarked on a journey, others have triumphed in this journey, there is a reward for this journey. Paul said in "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." 2 Timothy 4 :7 - 8
In this battle, race, assignment, work etc. there is a reward, crown of glory for the work, you've got to work it out. Just like in every race, there is a judge to access the participants whether the maintained their lane. In this kingdom race, there is a righteous judge who is Jesus Christ, He is with the crown of glory to be given as reward at his appearing. You got to be watchful, make sure you are not disqualified, don't let anyone take your crown, run to obtain the crown. "And, behold, I come quickly; and my rewards with me, to give every man according as his work shall be." Revelations 22 :12.
My Father! My Father! As I begin to pray, may the work of the gospel not fail in my time, in Jesus name.
