I have so enjoyed this talk this week on "Moving Forward"!! I know for me personally, God has spoken to me through this to just continue to trust Him in the moments that I'm not even sure about. God has a call and purpose for each one of us and we have to continue to fight the good fight of faith and press on towards the mark for which God is calling us towards that heavenly prize.
All these are the scriptures I shared with you this week and I hope they spoke to you in some way. I love Hebrews 12:12-13, where it talks about getting a new grip and strengthening our weak knees. So many times in the race we get weary and tired, but we need to get a new grip and realize that Jesus is the only way, and in those moments of being tired and weary, we need to tighten our grip with the One who is the Author and Finisher of our faith. He has the master plan.
Keep on running this race that has been set before you. We have to continue to throw off every weight that tries to entangle us and trap us up. We have to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. So many things in this world try to take our focus and get our attention and that keeps us from moving forward with Jesus. Stand strong and press on with endurance and perseverence. God has called you for a higher purpose. Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4
Keep running for Jesus, do like Paul said, and forget the past and look forward to what lies ahead... heavenly prize!!
