1 Cor 9:26 Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air
Being busy, running hard, fighting are all good, but if we don't know where we are going, what we are trying to achieve, it's all futile. We need traction - to move forward, not just spinning wheels. Our punches need to get a result. Being religiously busy doesn't impress God. He looks for results, fruit - people coming to Christ, His church increasing. Stop just spinning wheels. Get traction, so you can progress forward. Stop just running uncertainly. Get the purpose, plan & strategy to reach a destination. Don't just beat the air. Land a punch, so obstacles are removed.
