2 Timothy 4:7” I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith.”

How many of you know of these big borewell machines that comes on a huge lorry tractor, intimidating with huge pipes? I try and stay far away from them if I have to encounter them on the roads, few days back that borewell machine stood right in front of my house to dig borewell in the opposite portion of the land.  No sooner they reached the spot, within seconds I could hear the sound of the machine drilling into the land.  I was surprised at their efficiency to start so soon without wasting time, awed by those skills of the laborers who were operating those pipes coolly, I stood there holding the gates of our house and I was watching them work.  They kept persistently digging those gigantic pipes into the earth and after around 2 hours or so they successfully touched water and finished the work.  I went inside my house and came back a few minutes later to find to my horror the lorry stuck in a pit that was adjacent to the place they were working.  Shocked I found them all vigorously now working on getting that big mammoth lorry out of the pit.  Hard job!  One person gave them a foolish advice to take a particular route which brought them to the pit.  They started very skillfully, smartly, shrewdly and cleverly; however, they did not finish well.  Only after several hours did they manage to come out while it was already very dark. 

The Christian life is a marathon, not a 100-yard dash. You need to go slow, steady and also it requires certain amount of knowledge of the sport and skill to finish  well rather than wasting energy and drop out half way through.  Are you listening? Apostle Paul was able to say “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course..” On this day before Easter and as we come towards the end of 40 days of fasting also, how many can say, ‘by His grace I was able to fast, pray and read the Bible’ during these days of meditation?

Wesley L Duewel in his book “Touch the World through prayer” says, “God expects His children to face mountains of difficulties and to move them. He does not intend for us to be stopped by them, but to accept them as a challenge, either to turn them into highways for God’s greater glory or else to cast them into the sea, completely removed from the sight, as if they had never existed. Jesus assures us that this is fully possible when His children confront the mountains with faith, but reminds us that such mountain- moving may require prolonged prayer and fasting. The Holy Spirit will do the miracle. It will not be done by our might or power (Zech. 4:6)Amen.
