It’s Time to Dream Again to Run Your Race!
A Word by Rev. Melissa Pearce
Upon waking this morning, I heard the Lord say this phrase, “Run your race!” At first, I was caught off guard. As I inquired of Him as to what He meant, I heard Him say, “In times past, the enemy has tried to keep you from forging ahead, but this is My appointed time over your life to run the race I have destined for you! I have placed My dream within you to reveal My glory.”
We are in God’s appointed time to run the race He has destined for us. The enemy wants to use past disappointments, failures and discouragement to hinder you, but God is decreeing for renewal over you. Now is not the time to give up nor give in. As you stay hydrated in Him, the Living Water, He will give you the strength to push forward. Run your race is God’s commission to you to embrace the dreams, that were once tabled, with a new passion and fervor.
“For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry” (NKJV- Habakkuk 2:3).
God does not release a dream within your heart to be squashed, squandered or silenced. God releases His visions so that we will partner with Him in His appointed time. When we execute His intentions, His glory will be revealed. God’s appointed time is His designated period in which He has decreed in the heavenlies to be executed on the earth.
“Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son” (NKJV- Genesis 18:14).

It was God’s appointed time to fulfill His covenant promise to Abraham. The appointed time was for Sarah, Abraham’s wife to birth a son. For many of you, this is your appointed time to birth the dream that God has placed within you. However, there has been past circumstances that have been tripping you up, causing you to stumble, fumble and fall. God is releasing a renewal over your mind. You will no longer be bound to what was; it’s now time to be filled with anticipation, expectation, hope and promise.
This renewal is going to cancel the spirit of unbelief off your life as it relates to your abilities. You are going to see the true value you possess. Where doubt had ensnared you in the past, it will no longer keep you hostage. The lies you once believed that you were not capable, not adequate, not enough, or not ready will be muzzled and replaced with God’s truth. It’s time to strip doubt from your mind and build yourself in the faith, seizing God’s absolute faithfulness. It’s time for you to birth your dream to run your race.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who by faith have testified to the truth of God’s absolute faithfulness], stripping off every unnecessary weight and the sin which so easily and cleverly entangles us, let us run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us” (NKJV- Hebrews 12:1).
This is your appointed time to birth the promises of what God has given to you. You cannot allow past failures, disappointments, and discouragement to become the unnecessary weight you carry. Some may have ridiculed you for believing, judged you for past failures or belittled you for trying. You cannot allow the actions of others to determine nor define what God had given to you. If you do, you can quickly fall into a pit of despair, defeat and hopelessness. This is your season to partner with God and to strip off this unnecessary weight that is entangling you to start running again!
God’s renewal is causing a revitalization to occur with your faith. You see yourself in a new light – His light! You are dusting off your running shoes and training with Him again. God is breaking off discouragement and replacing it with courage. You are forging ahead and forgetting what is behind, because He has placed His passion within your heart to run this race with endurance, persistence and determination.
Your dream isn’t just for you, but the dream God has given to you is to reach the lives of others. Your dream is to have an impact for His glory and honor.
“Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us (AMP – Ephesians 3:20).
You have a destiny to fulfill. It is time to dream and believe again! It is time to place your expectation and anticipation in God. This is your appointed time! So, run your race with your eyes like flint on Him, the Author and Finisher, knowing what He started, He will bring it to completion.
