"Lord Show Us Your Glory"
Press through the Mess
(Philippians 3:13-14 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.”
When God orders your footsteps there are some places, people, and situations that are assigned to try to stop you or hinder you. Surely as Christ has a work to do so do Satan. Christ job was to go to the Cross-for us and die as a substitute for us. Now Satan’s job was to convince the people to crucify Christ. Now both were accomplished through divine order. The same way Satan has tried to abort God’s purpose in Jesus Christ life he is also trying to abort God’s purpose for your life.
There are some obstacles and situations that have happened in your life that makes you want to give up or give in. However I am writing to encourage you that it is all in the plan and never give up. Hold on to God’s unchanging hand and press through the mess that the enemy has placed in front of you. See when you press through all of the dark areas of your life you will find yourself moving into the light. What I mean by that is if you use your faith in Christ to go forward and don’t look back; God will usher you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Even if He doesn’t take you out of the situation right away He has the power to shed His light on it. He can and will give you wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of how to overcome that which has overwhelmed you.
See trials and tribulations are just a test of our faith. They come to build you up in Christ and make you strong in all areas of your life. For Christ states when we as believers are weak, He is strong. He is our refuge and strongtower in times of trouble. In Philippians 3:14 Jesus simply tells you to forgot about what your going through or what you been through; grab a hold of faith and press toward the mark of your high calling. When trials and obstacles come your way don’t ever give up but gird up and take on the challenge. Then remember that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. So forget about the problems but don’t ever forget the purpose and plan of God; or of the enemy.
Then you can press through the mess and be blessed. For surely we must recognize the fact that there is no problem that exist that God can’t solve…Nothing is impossible to Him, for Him, or through Him…
