Scripture Reading: 1 Corinthians 9:24
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one received the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
Reflection: The Apostle Paul directs our focus to a very important subject in life- the need to have a winning mentality. He reminds us that anybody who competes in a race does so with the mentality to win the price at stake. A winning mentality is a positive mindset that propels an individual to pursue excellence and success in life. No one will ever join a competition with the mindset to loose. That will be so odd! and of course if that proves to be so, then the individual will definitely put in no effort to win the race. The end result will surely be a foregone conclusion- failure! As long as you don’t seek to fail in life’s endeavors, you must have a winning mentality. Once you want to win, you will be motivated to put in the efforts to get you there! That is the power of a wining mentality. Run your race in life to win! This includes the ‘race’ of your spiritual life. Your mind must be made up. You are a winner and not a failure!
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me maintain a winning attitude in life.
Confession: My mind is made up. I am a winner and not a failure. I run any race in life to win, even my spiritual ‘race’.
