You can run... but you'll just die tired



There is a saying among snipers, "You can run...but you'll just die tired." My homeboy Jason told me that-he has been shot and blown up oversees and lived to talk about it so I know the source is legit! The spiritual truth in this saying is fantastic. For the longest time I ran from God. He was clearly calling on my heart yet I wasn't ready to give up control of my life. He persistently and patiently pursued me. Many of you know what I am talking about.

God has each one of us lined up in His scope. So many times in my life I have felt like God was about as close to me as a distant star in the sky. Despite how we feel God knows each one of us intimately. The psalmist tells us that he calls the stars by name and Jesus tells us that every hair on our head is numbered. Even in the midst of this mighty Universe He knows us amongst the cosmos. We are significant enough to be greatly loved by our Creator despite how insignificant we may feel.

If you are running from God just remember, "You can run, but you'll just die tired." God has you in His sights. Nothing you can do can escape His reach. God wants YOU. If you are tired of running all you have to do is stop, turn around and embrace Him.
