God’s Pace

God's pace

Today, I was taking our dog, Domino, out for a run. I clipped on his leash and lead him to the door. “C’mon, boy!” I said cheerfully. We went outside  and straight for the woods. A few minutes later I ran Domino around the house. As we were running, though, I noticed that Domino would either run ahead of me, pulling and tugging, or he would stop to smell the ground and walk slowly. Either way, he would not follow my leading. Only a few times would Domino actually run at the pace I had set, staying right at my side. How much easier it was then!

The same is so true  in my walk with the Lord.  He has set a pace for my life, and when I stay directly at His side, running the race is so much easier. But when I try to run at a slower pace, balking at where He wants me to go,  the Lord must pull and tug to get me to go where I’m supposed to be. Then I get running, and get ahead of where He wants me to be, so that God must pull me back to His side. But why can’t I just stay by His side in the first place? Is it because I don’t trust Him? I ought to, but I don’t think I do quite so much as I should. If He could create the universe with such detail and beauty, I think I can trust Him to lead me at just the right time, to just the right place that I should be. May we all run the race with perseverance….at God’s pace.

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me. ~Galatians 2:20~
