God meets you where you are to run this race with you. He was unwilling to leave you on your own and he left a throne to serve us. Satan is always dangling some fading promise a step ahead of you, but he is clearly at a disadvantage since he will never know what it’s like to be one of us. All he has is a throne that rules a sad kingdom of self. Jesus offers a kingdom where we run side-by-side, together, his promises unfolding each day.
