I get it, really I do. I understand the burning in the back of your legs as you crest the last hill, only to find there are still 10 more to go. Starting the race is never the problem, nor is getting half way there, it is in there in the last third that muscle fatigue burns furiously. It’s the place where you have come so far but you still can’t see the end. You want to quit thinking the end will never come.
the lie: I can’t do this. The cost is too great. It is too hard, too impossible, too much…
God didn’t call us to finish. He called us to start and then to follow Him. He does the rest. His strength sustains. His wisdom guides. His hand provides. And He is faithful to finish what was started.
Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged for the Lord God, My God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. 1 Chronicles 28:20
