The earth spins 1000 times faster at the equator than it does at either one of the poles. In fact, that’s why rockets are launched closer to the Earth’s midline than further away. When a spacecraft is launched from around the equator, it is already traveling at a considerably faster speed… thus making it more fuel efficient and quicker to enter orbit.
Isn’t that true in our lives as well? The closer we are to the center of things…the faster paced life is. Some thrive in the environment… while others do whatever they can to retreat to the slower pace of the poles. But what speed does God want us to live?
Galatians 6:9 tells us: “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” We have to remember that It’s not about the speed of life…it’s about staying at it and not quitting. There will be times in our lives where we’ll sprint…and others where we’ll jog. What God is concerned about is our priorities and our perseverance. At whatever speed you’re living… are we putting Him first? Are we loving and serving others? If so… run on. Don’t give up on the dream that He’s put in your heart long before you were born. And whatever you do… in whatever season you find yourself in… at whatever speed life is coming at you…. don’t quit. Breakthrough is coming… and God has big things planned for you!
