Galatians 5:7–You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth?
As we go along in our Christian walk, each day becomes harder and harder. The temptations and potential distractions seem to mount up in front of us. We are running well, we must not allow these temptations to trip us up or hinder us from the race of the Christian life that we are running. Paul knew the Galatians had allowed themselves to become distracted and he sought to get them back on the right path. What has hindered us today? Lay it aside, focus on the truth, and get running!
Father, I don’t want any hindrances from obeying the truth. I desire You and You alone. I confess my lack of focus on You, forgive me and set me running well once more.
