No More "Shadowboxing"

...I fight to win. I'm not just shadowboxing or playing around (1 Corinthians 9:26 TLB).

Have you ever seen a boxer who is practising the punches without an opponent? It's part of training, to learn how to throw hypothetical punches at an imaginary adversary. However, the boxer's coach knows that no matter how great the man looks shadowboxing like that, he will only know his true ability when he gets in the ring to fight for the belt.

Many people have found themselves shadowboxing and not making any real progress in their lives. They're running the race of life aimlessly; they have a ticket to nowhere. Don't run aimlessly.

As you play the game of life, maintain focus. What are the definate things you plan to achieve? Set your heart on them and let nothing stop you from achieving your goals. Remember, with the Holy Spirit living in you, you have the wisdom and impetus to succeed in any endeavour. You have in you the yeast to rise. You're a winner and a victor in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah.

Dear Father, thank you for repositioning me through your WORD. I will not shadowbox this year and I will not run aimlessly or merely go through the motions. By the help of the Holy Ghost, I am yet achieving supernatural results in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
