“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. ” Philippians 3:14
One day I was driving in the pouring rain and I could barely see. People were pulling onto the side of the road but I kept going. By the time I got home, the rain stopped. Storms, no matter how bad, don’t come to stay, they will eventually pass over.
Have you ever found yourself in a place where every time you take a step forward, you seemed to get knocked two steps back? Life happens to us all and sometimes it catches us off guard, but no matter what, you have to keep going! Press on toward the goal of hearing God say, “Well done!” Giving up could mean that we would not fulfill all that God is calling us to do.
Dear Heavenly Father, sometimes I admit it seems easier to quit than to keep moving forward. The thing that causes me to keep going is knowing that your will for my life is best for me. On my darkest days, help me to remember your promises for me. In Jesus Name Amen!
What are some obstacles in your life that are keeping you from moving forward? How might God be leading you to surrender them to Him?
