Many times we become weary and feel beaten down, but we need to remember in Whom we must place our trust. We need to continue to fall at His feet, seek His strength, and ask for His wisdom and receive all that we need to fulfill what He have purposed. Then we need to thank Him for the many blessings along the way, but also thank Him for the not so pleasant times in our lives and the lessons learned.
“I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me.”Philippians 3:12
Our journey in this life contains disappointments and obstacles. There are many times we may feel like giving up, and retreating. Through our every failure and disappointment, we find ourselves at the feet of our Savior, where He picks us up, reenergizes us, restores us and gives us the push we need to continue; only with a greater understanding, that we aren’t placing the outcome or our trust in our human resources, but trusting fully in His unlimited ability.
Our human side finds it easy to complain, and resent the difficult circumstance, but our spirits gain an understanding of the greater eternal plan which God has purposed and will bring to completion in our lives. So Today, let go and take hold of all that Jesus has taken hold of for you. Have the faith to make His promises your own, and press on in faith and live bold in courage.
Have a wonderful day as you press on to to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. Love you all. Please listen to this song and I pray it encourages you. God bless you!
