The Spirit of God will lead you, but Satan will drive you! God says your worth is His Son going to the Cross of Calvary for you! Everything you need is in Salvation, not just eternal life, but every test, trial or temptation is paid for.
Today, some of you may feel you have had one too many wrecks in your life, maybe too many crash and burns. It seems you never see the caution flag until you have already hit the wall. God is the ultimate finisher of the race He has called you, all you have to do is tune your ear to hear Him as He gives you your driving instructions. There is a big difference between driving and being driven.
It may seem others have had a life of all checker flags, that every race we’ve entered we won. But on the contrary, we too have had many blown engines and missing pistons. We are not the only ones that are the apple of God’s eye. Every one of us here today, are the apple of His eye. Catch the vision of the finish line in God, He has already won the victory He just needs you to finish your race.
Deut. 32:10 (KJV) He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
1 Corinthians 9:24 (NIV) Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.
Your worth today is no more or less than a big name minister that is known around the world. You are valuable to God for only you can do what He has given you to do for His glory. We have all failed and sinned, yet God is asking us to get up, to rise above whatever Satan, man or self is bringing our way, to be all He called us to be for the building of His Kingdom…. yes you have a ministry, yes there is work to be done…. yes, and it really only can be done by you. My earthly position does not measure my value; my transformation from the old life into the resurrection life makes my life priceless in Christ.
