I’ve been listening to the new Third Day album Miracle for the past few days. I love it! But that’s really no surprise. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a Third Day song I didn’t like. But there always seems to be one song on each album that stands out for me. On Offerings it was Thief, on Wherever You Are it was Rise Up, on Revelation it was Run to You, and on Move is was Make Your Move.
On this latest album the stand out for me is The Victory. I love the hard rockin’ beat, but I also love the message. We all have to run a hard race in this lifetime. We face obstacles and many times it feels like a constant battle. But when we stand firm in Christ, we know we have already walked away with the Victory.
I decided to share this song today to encourage those who are growing weary of the race, who feel they can’t fight another day. Remember that the race has already been run and the fight has already been won by our Savior Jesus.
I also wanted to share it in honor of all the veterans who have fought the good fight to protect our freedom to live and grow in Christ in this wonderful country I live in. (I know Veterans’ Day was technically yesterday, but I’m off work today in honor of the day so am posting this today.)
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1 (NIV).
