Men who finish strong are generally those who anticipate the ambushes in their lives.
“His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ ” (Matthew 25:21)
Finishing strong means walking with God personally at the end of our lives – being strong in our faith and close to the Lord. To finish strong, you must survive the ambushes in your life. And the guys who get through the ambushes are generally those who anticipate them.
Men can expect to encounter at least 3 different types of ambushes as they attempt to finish strong:
1) the ambush of another woman (female)
2) the ambush of money (finances)
3) the ambush of a neglected family (family)
You may be reading this and thinking that it’s too late for you to finish strong. You’ve made some mistakes – some big mistakes. But it’s never too late to begin doing what’s right. As long as you’re breathing, it’s never too late to confess your sin to the Lord in genuine repentance and receive His forgiveness.
What intentional steps are you taking to survive the ambushes in your life?
LORD, it’s my heart’s desire to finish the race strong – for You to say ‘Well done, good and faithful servant’ when I die and rise to new life. Forgive me for the mistakes I’ve made in the past. Guide my steps to protect me from the ambushes in my life. Do likewise for my family and for those who read this message. Thank You Jesus. Amen.
