“I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.”
We are familiar with the need to walk with the Lord, but have we ever ran with Him? Running implies that there is swiftness, and a delight in our pace when journeying with Him.
1 Corinthians 9:24
“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:”
We need not run in vain or amiss, but rather with a goal in mind.
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,”
The Scripture tells us the direction to run toward.
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
The Lord is willing to enlarge our hearts with more knowledge and wisdom through His Word. As we love Him more, our hearts will grow.
If we want the Lord to order our steps, we must be willing to run to Him through His Word.
