Next Sunday, I am running my marathon with my son Daniel. I have been saying all along that it is impossible for me to run it. In a way, that is absolutely true. Apart from the grace of God, I can do nothing. But God has begun to put a new thought in me that is much more in line with His word: I can run this marathon, for nothing is impossible for those who believe. My ability comes from Him, but I certainly have been granted ability, so it isn’t correct for me to say that I cannot do it. It would be much wiser for me to confess what God says: I can do all things through Christ who strenghtens me.
My running will be to the glory of God indeed!
