Please take a moment and share your prayer requests with us today AND please take a few minutes to pray for these prayer requests! God has called us to pray for each other, it is an opportunity we should never miss. 1 Samuel 12:23 says, “Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by ceasing to pray for you, and I will instruct you in the good and right way.” : CLICK HERE
I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
There is and always will be something fighting you, trying to keep you from doing the will of God! If you are trying to live for God, Satan of course is going to fight you on it! He will do His best to throw every obstacle in your way to discourage you and to defeat you, but you can win those daily battles by keeping your eyes on God!
There will be days when Satan will try to throw your past in your face to try to tell you that you aren’t “good enough” or “you aren’t qualified”. When God calls you to do something you need to remind yourself that Satan has nothing to say that ever matters in your life! He is the Father of Lies and he will do his best to keep you from all that God has for you! Just keep pressing forward in all that God is calling you to do!
We were just on Mackinaw Island and on the island you either, walk, ride bikes, ride horses or take carriage rides to get around, they only have a couple emergency vehicles on the island. The horses that pull the carriages all have ‘blinders’ on so they can only see forward because of all the things that could distract them otherwise or even spook them. We need to be just like those horses and we need to keep our ‘blinders’ on so we don’t look to the side or behind, we just continually press forward!
Don’t buy the lies of Satan today, don’t look around for others approval, just keep pressing forward toward the goal that God has given you! The victory is already yours! The best is yet to come!
“It is not what lies before us or what lies behind us, but is within us that matters”
