As I was fasting and praying, I heard The Lord say to me, “The finish line is near and you can see it.” I felt this great urgency rise up in me as though I needed to accomplish a task I’d been involved in for a while. Then I heard in my spirit “IT’S TIME TO SPRINT TO THE FINISH LINE!”
All of a sudden, I understood what God was trying to tell me (and every true Christian).
“Gaspar, you know what to do. Stop just dreaming about it, talking about it and trying to convince others to join you in doing it. I gave you My heart’s desire to live out and, now that the end is near, its time. It’s time to sprint to the finish line and accomplish what I called you to do.”
I understood that we all have a clear picture of what God placed in our heart to accomplish in our lifetime for His Glory.
Many of us have put dreams on the shelf to do something less important. Others are taking their sweet time in accomplishing what He made them for. Still others have given up on God’s dream for them, thinking it is too late or just plain impossible now. But some of you reading this hear that still, small inner voice reminding you of what God once said He wanted from your life. What God placed in you is still there and you can’t deny it’s pulling and tugging in your heart.
Lose the excuses
At the same time, God gave me the strong impression that we need to get rid of every excuse, distraction and reason why we can’t finish or even start. My heart was opened to the reality that the finish line is in full view. “What is the finish line?” you ask. In my vision, the finish line is the end of the church age, our way of life, as we know it now. But it’s the beginning of life, as God wants it.
The spirit of lawlessness has been on the face of the earth and is ever-increasing daily with unspeakable violence across the globe. As I write this, I am hearing about a new terrorist group taking over Iraq—one of an increasing number, even more violent and anti-American. To the spiritually minded, it’s obvious that the end is near.
Then, in my vision I heard God say He’s going to do a quick work. What would normally take years will happen in months. What would normally take months will happen in a day.
Don’t hold back
God said, “Sprint to the finish line and fulfill the very thing you were created for. It’s not the season to hold back, but bust loose and run at it.”
Our days are numbered, so leave nothing in reserve. Hold nothing back, saving it for another day, foolishly thinking we time. Live your dream, step out in faith, fulfill your call and don’t look back. Go for it with the finish line in view. SPRINT!
The saddest thing that could happen is to know what God wanted to do in and through you and to never accomplish it. Remember, whatever God asks will always be underwritten by heaven’s power. The only way to fail is by doing nothing.
Don’t just talk about doing it or continually make plans to do it. No! JUST DO IT. Make a run for it! The finish line is near and your reward awaits you. Some of you know what I’m talking about because you heard the same thing. So run the race!
