Philippians 3:12b-14 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, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
I Corinthians 9:24 Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win!
Today I choose to keep going. The rough mountain trials of life can bring me to a place of exhaustion, but I move forward. Today I rely on the strength of my Master to carry me over the threshold of this current phase in my life. I choose to not focus on the stalling past. Today I will strain forward if I must, but I will not stay behind. I will strip off every weight that holds me back. Each sin, each earthly treasure that clings to my soul falls off me now as I move forward in Him. I will not back down as I run this race for my Savior, my God, my best friend. I am His champion as I continue. Today I will move with my God and I will go. Today I choose to keep going.
Pray: Father God, may I one day stand before you with the assurance that I fought the good fight and actually finished the race. Please give me the ability to remain faithful to you each day of my life. I rest in your power to walk me through difficulties today and I trust in your wisdom to carry me as I choose to not give up. Thank you Lord for helping me to keep going. Amen
