"Lord Show Us Your Glory"
Philippians 3:13-14 King James Version (KJV) “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
Truly this is still a New Year with new challenges, new open doors, and new realms and dimensions in God. However before we can enter into the new we will have to let go of some of the old things and maybe even some of the old people in our lives. One thing is for sure most of us hate change especially when we don’t know how to transition from the old to the new without making a mess of our lives or our situations and/or circumstances. So our natural instinct is to resist change and desire to stay the same, but this is the time and season for all who desire to go higher in ministry, business, or self improvement to press onward.
What do I mean when I say press on? Go forward without hesitation, or procrastination, moving by weight (power) or force (authority) in a certain direction or into a certain position knowing that you have the strength, the wisdom and knowledge of God to do so. Then make sure you have a vision and a goal that you desire to attain, your next step is to pray and make sure that it is God’s will for you to do it. Then recognize that Satan will definitely not make it easy for you but God will make it reachable as long as you are teachable and do what is right in the eyesight of God.
For surely when you attain your goal or vision you want to be proud of your accomplishment and not ashamed because you accomplished it by or through the schemes and tactics of the devil. Hindrances, distractions and persecutions will come for truly the adversary has to show himself but don’t let that stop you but let it catapult you into your destiny. Let your weakness become God’s strength during this season and you will be successful and prosper in all your ways.
So I encourage you and challenge you to press on toward your higher calling in Christ Jesus and He will and He shall give you the victory!!!!! Have a Blessed and Prosperous 2012…..
