“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
If you’ve ever seen the Indian Jones movies, you had the main character looking for treasure and being met with all sorts of danger in the process. However, there’s one scene that really stands out to me. It’s when he is crossing over a bridge, and he sees the bridge being destroyed behind him. He runs forward, knowing if he stands still, he will die.
When it comes to obeying God and doing what He’s called you to do, I would like for you to remember this image. See God’s will in front of you and destruction behind you, which can be getting caught up in sin, or experiencing unnecessary hardship. My sister, you can’t stay where you are. You’ve got to move forward into God’s purpose and plan. If you stand still in fear, doubt and unbelief, you open a door for the enemy to operate in your life. That’s not God’s will for you. It is His will that you have life and life to the full.
Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for speaking directly to my heart. I know I can’t stay where I am. I have to move forward. Help me, Lord. I rebuke any spirit that is keeping me from obeying you. And I yield to you completely. I say yes to your will and choose to move forward into your purpose and plan for my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
(Read Hebrews 12:1; Proverbs 5:22; Psalm 103:4)
