It doesn’t matter who started first before you, when the hand of God comes upon you at His time, you will overtake them for we don’t RUN BY SPEEDING, WE RUN BY WAITING.
Elijah prayed for rain and when a cloud formed in the sky, He told king Ahab to ride fast to the city while he waited in PRAYER. But when the SPIRIT of God came upon Elijah, he outran the king and his chariots on bare feet. (1 Kings 18 vs. 46)
He who loves God does not make hast (Isaiah 28 vs. 16)
God bless you.
