Instead, he came limping into the stadium far behind the rest of the competitors. He had fallen on the course and injured his leg. He hobbled along, barley able to stand up, struggling with each step and leaving a trail of blood as he moved slowly along. The medical personnel on the field started to go to his aid, but he waved them back. He wanted no help. He was going to make it to the end at all costs.

After what seemed to be an eternity, and with an almost super-human effort, he finally crossed the finish line and collapsed just a foot past the mark, lying there too weak to get up on his own.

When the aides reached him to help him they asked, “Why did you finish the race when you were so badly injured? His answer is one that we should all remember in this race of life.

He said, “My country didn’t send me 7,000 miles to start the race. They sent me 7,000 miles to finish the race!

Shake The Devil Off.... Finish your race! .... Never give up!

Just as surely as Paul was destined to reach Rome to fulfill the will of God in his life, we too must be willing to cross the finish line and win.....the race... because God has promised us the victory.

It’s part of our heritage and your inheritance.

The Apostle Paul said..... “I HAVE FOUGHT A GOOD FIGHT.... I HAVE FINISHED MY COURSE... I HAVE. KEPT THE FAITH.

Illustration: Goat that fell into the well and the farmer tried to bury it alive.

A farmer’s prize goat fell into a well one day. And he knew that he would not be able to pull it out so he decided to bury the goat alive in the well. He took his shovel and begin to throw dirt into the well. When dirt fell on the goat’s back he would shake it off and pack it under its feet. This went on continiously until the goat had pack enough dirt underneath his feet enabling him to stept of the well.

When the Devil.... LIES ON YOU.... SHAKE THE LIES OFF.... AND PACK HIM UNDER YOUR FEET AND DECLARE THAT THE LORD IS THE WAY.... THE TRUTH... AND THE LIFE.

When the Devil.... TRY TO STEAL YOUR JOY.... SHAKE HIM OFF.... AND PACK HIM UNDER YOUR FEET AND REJOICE IN THE LORD.

When the Devil .... TRY TO KILL YOUR FAITH.... SHAKE HIM OFF.... AND PACK THEM UNDER YOUR FEET AND WALK IN THE POWER OF THE RESURRECTION.

When the Devil..... TRY TO STEAL.... KILL... and DESTROY YOU....... Remember the Lord promises us in His Word.... in Isaiah 54:17, "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.

When the Devil TRY TO STEAL.... KILL... and DESTROY YOU....... Remember the Lord promises us in His Word.... in Mark 16:17-18, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."

Keep The Fire Kindled...... And Stay on your knees in prayer, because it’s hard for the Vipers and Snakes to keep biting when you are Praying.

Keep The Fire Kindled..... And Shake the Devil off and Let the fire of the Holy Ghost burning brightly inside of you so that the dampness of your spirit can be made DRY and you can feel the WARMTH of God’s presence in your life.

Keep The Fire Kindled..... And allow the Holy Spirit to renew and refresh
