2 Timothy 4:7 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. (NIV)

So often we read this verse as only applying to our finished life’s journey.  It actually applies to each and every thing God has and continues to bid us to do.  Our question is, have we completed all that God told us to do in the past?  What job or ministry is left open?  The good fight we must contend with is procrastination we have just addressed.  It is so tempting to leave a job half done.  Let us learn to finish each race.  Is there someone or something the Holy Spirit has put on our hearts to pray and lift up before God’s throne of grace?  Have we continued doing that until we see God’s complete answer on that issue?  Let us put up the good fight about procrastination, lack of full commitment or any other thing that would tempt us to quit before finished.  Let us pray until something happens, speak until heard and understood and act until the mission is complete.  Let us finish each race with faith.
