One thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead. Philippians 3:13, NIV.
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Are you allowing the small things in life to keep you from Gods best? Today is the day to press past the small things and run toward your destiny! Unforgiveness is a small thing. Forgive and move on to the greater thing. Fear is small. Its not from God. Dont let it hold you back. An addiction is small. You have the power to overcome anything through Christ Jesus. Being undisciplined is small. If you are a believer today, you have the seed of Almighty God inside of you. There is no challenge thats too difficult for you!
I think about Joshua and Caleb. When they came back from spying out the Promised Land they said, Moses, we are well able to take the land. Let us go in at once. Not next week. Not next year. They were now people. But if you over-analyze your situation and think about all the what ifs and try to get approval from all your family and friends, youll never move off of dead center. Youll be stuck in the small things.
Today, make the decision to press forward. Be like Joshua and Caleb. Dont look at your circumstances; look at your God because He is the one who is empowering you to take hold of the good things He has for your future!
A Prayer for Today
Father, today I make the decision to press past small things. I let go of small thinking and small doing and choose to open my heart and mind to You. Lead me in the way I should go. Thank You for Your everlasting love in Jesus name. Amen!
Thank you so much for posting these words, Vision. An hour ago I woke up needing just such words.
Have a blessed day!
