“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14
How often do we remember those things which are behind and forget the Grace of God that is for today.
“And He said unto me, My Grace is sufficient for you: for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9.
Whatever weakness afflicts us, we must look to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, knowing that His shed Blood allows the very power of God to rest upon us. Our faith in His atoning work gives the Holy Spirit latitude to rest upon the Child God. HIS strength, the power of God that raised Jesus Christ from the grave, is made perfect in our weakness. Therefore glory…glory in our infirmities so the power of God is manifested and His Grace is shown sufficient.
FORGET those things which are behind and remember in Whom you have believed. Press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus!
“For the Eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him. Herein you have done foolishly: therefore from henceforth you shall have wars.” 2 Chronicles 16:9
Don’t do foolishly…press forward.
