Dailies ~in His Word

What do you do when it gets hard to walk? Do you stop? Do you work harder? Or do you press on?

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—2 Corinthians 4:7-9

…so that one way or another I will experience the resurrection from the dead! 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. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, Philippians 3:11:14

The Bible tells us to press on and by that it means keep going do not give up just keep swimming! It’s all about keeping things in perspective. Our problems only have as much power as we allow them to have over our days. It is not a matter of becoming a Christian and no longer having problems but it is the knowing how to deal with the problems as they come. We can either get all upset, share the upset feelings with others who most likely will in turn give up their own good attitude and follow us because we are us, and they somehow like us. Or we can trust God to get through it with us and seek Him for guidance, and help, and even peace over what we have as a problem.
As for me and my house we will serve the Lord, and in serving we will grow closer to God and His will for our lives. In doing this we will get a clue about how to handle stressful things that will come into our lives from time to time. Who to give it up to! 
It is not always easy trying to live right before God but it is the best choice.

Heavenly Father, help us to grow more like you and to walk in peace with You each day, in trouble or good times, in Jesus’ name, amen.
