Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
(Heb. 12:1 NIV)
Is there a desire that you placed on the shelf, so to speak? Have you been sitting on the sidelines of your dream, celebrating everybody else's victories, content to see the promises come to pass in their lives? It's good to celebrate with others, but God wants to do something amazing in your life, too. He wants you to be celebrated. You don't have to sit on the sidelines watching everyone else. You have treasure inside of you.

Think about the promises that God has spoken over you; dreams that He wants you to give birth to. It's not too late. You're not too old. It may look impossible, but our God can do the impossible. When you believe, favor is released. When you believe, hidden treasure comes forth. Don't waste another day sitting on the sidelines of life. It's time to get back in the game. It's time to run your race. It's time to press forward into the promises that God has in store for you!

A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for the promises You've spoken over my life. Help me to rise up, be strong and press forward. Today I choose to let go of anything that would hold me back from boldly embracing everything You have in store for me in Jesus' name! Amen.
