SPIRITUAL RUN

Have you ever had a spiritual run? I mean a literal spiritual run

Tuesday, 9 June 2020 woke up in the morning Β do my regular morning runs with my sister, God spoke to me on this day. He saidthis is your spiritual run Nene”. Run don’t walk, run until you get to robots, you can take a break there. Things shifted instantly.

As I started to run, God was speaking to me saying: you’re going a journey which is not easy and not pleasent. Sometimes your legs will get heavy, you’ll run out of breath, your heart will beat fast and sometimes you’ll feel like your about to pass out. Don’t stop running, don’t take a break to catch your breath, don’t walk, run until you get to robot, only then you can take a break. Many people start this run, some turn back or take longer to finish because they decided to take a break or to walk instead of run. They say to themselves “why is it taking longer for me to get out of this situation, my peers are before me” some even say “God have you forgotten me! “.

When you feel like giving up remember you have a helper, to give you air when you run out of breath, to keep your feet from failing when they feel heavy or you feel you can't keep running, my army (angels) to protect from the cars that… Click To Tweet

My word says I will never leave you or forsake you but I never said the journey will be easy, that’s why I sent my helper the Holy Spirit John 17:11-12 “I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of Or [Father, keep them faithful to] your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one.While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by Or [kept them faithful to] that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.” and the angels Hebrew 1:14″ Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? “. When you feel like giving up remember you have a helper, to give you air when you run out of breath, to keep your feet from failing when they feel heavy or you feel you can’t keep running, my army (angels) to protect from the cars that want to bump into you while running or robers or the people who make unpleasant remarks while running, don’t pay attention to any of it. Focus on your run, focus on my promise.

While all these things were going through my head, I felt a relief all of sudden the distance didn’t feel to long unlike the other day where I’d stop and walk and complain about the pain in my chest and legs feeling heavy. There was a moment I felt like my feet were light like feather, I actually wanted to keep running past the robot because I wasn’t out of breath, I wanted to keep running. But God told me to Stop and catch my breath, walk it out for a bit. Psalm 27:14 “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”

Again the Messiah started to speak to me John 8:11 “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”, many people then start to go ahead without me, thinking they’ve made it. I needed to stop at the robots, even if you still have the energy STOP for a moment. Gaod said “Listen to me, if you keep running without my go ahead you will run out of breath and passout, your legs will get heavy and eventually hurt your feet and instead of keeping on the journey, you’ll need to stop or even go back to the beginning because of your injuries.”

Once I stopped at the robot, my sister then catched up to me, I wanted to run behind her then she said “run infront”, it felt like she was saying this is your race, you lead the way but know I am always behind you, supporting you, praying for you. You are neveralone” , Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.” Β 

We got to the next stop (robot) there she went infront and started jogging. Then the Messiah saidthere are times in your jog/journey you need to step back and watch those who have ran this race before you lead you. Even if you feel you have more energy and can run faster DON’T, relax watch learn from them, this part of the race is called observing WISDOM, don’t be impatient or arrogant. Be still and calm. Proverbs 19:20 “Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise.” Now it’s time to observe. And I did just that, I watched her run, her posture as shewas running, the steps she was taking avoiding the stones, the cyclers and cars.

I might run faster but my posture was wrong and I just wanted to go go go, not being careful of the other dangers on this new road, it was more sandy and rocky, more distractions and this past of the race is not about being fast but being careful, observate of my actions, watching out the enemy because the enemy never sleeps but don’t stop running, just be careful. 1 Peter 5:8-9″Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”

On the last part of the morning run, myself and my sister started to encourage each other, Mathew 18:20″ For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” sometimes she passes me and sometimes I pass her, sometimes we run side by side but we’d laugh and then say “come on we can do this let’s keep going”, “be careful there’s a truck” we are not running the same race but we encouraging each other, praying for each other, sharing testimonies and vision. 1 Thessalonians 5:14 ” And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone.” Until we got home sterched it out and was like “today it was a good run”
