I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:14, ESV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Are there some tent stakes in your life that you need to pull up so you can press forward? Maybe youve stopped in a temporary place, and its time to keep going. Maybe youve gotten comfortable and decided that your dreams are never going to come to pass. Your health is never going to improve. Im asking you to pack up your tent, gather up your belongings and start moving forward. You may have taken a temporary delay, but thats okay. That didnt stop your destiny. Today can be your new beginning. God is breathing new life into your spirit. He has greater victories in front of you!
Remember, the first place we lose the battle is in our own thinking. If you dont think you can be successful, then you never will be. If you dont think you can overcome the past, meet the right person or accomplish your dreams, then youll get stuck right where you are. Youve got to change your thinking. God said no good thing would He withhold because you walk uprightly. Get rid of a negative, defeated mentality. Make room in your thinking for the new thing God wants to do, pull up your stakes and let God lead you in to your promised land!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for empowering me to pick up from this temporary place and move forward toward the dreams and goals You have for me in Jesus name. Amen.
Are there threads where stuff like this CAN be debated?
Would be nice but I’d bet it would degrade into shouting matches.
