Dailies 2019

(Almost ) Dailies ~In His Word
October 2019
Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore, let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. Philippians 3:13-15

Yesterday I took a day trip with my youngest adult son, it was long but it was efficient as he completed a task that he had been waiting a long time for. Sometimes life is like that, you have to wait to achieve something you know is rightfully yours. It’s not always easy to get things done in life. Sometimes we have to get thrown in a pit, sold as a slave, turned into a servant, and tossed in prison before we get to shine and save the people from starvation! Joseph went through a lot and made it to his dream from God, eventually. Genesis 37-39.  I think that God has that story in the Bible so that we can see that we just need to keep our eyes on the prize. To keep on believing for that promise to come true!
Moses got to see the promised land before he died, you can read about him in Exodus 3-4, Nicodemus saw the Messiah before he died and that was something worth waiting for! John chapter 3 tells of his story.
Let’s not lose track of what we are heading towards; the prize of eternal salvation and bringing as many people with us as we can! Let us focus on the promises that God has given us and follow in His path that is laid out before us. Then we can obtain the prize the things that He has for us, and the people in our lives are all part of the process; keep moving forward! He’s got even this trial you are in all figured out, don’t give up, just give it up to Jesus!
Heavenly Father thank you for pushing forward that we may follow in your path that is before us. Give us the strength to continue until we reach the destination You have programed for us to get to. In Jesus’ name, amen.
