Today's Bible Verse
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.
From the Book
I’m praying for you to be able to focus on running toward the heavenly prize. [Part 1]
In the midst of hardship, it can be easy to become obsessed with our pain, unable to think or talk about anything else. We easily become focused on doing whatever it takes to get to the good life in the here and now. But in Paul’s letter to the believers in Philippi, we see that Paul maintained a very different focus in the midst of his suffering in prison.
<I'm Praying for You> Nancy Gutherie, p71
Lord, it's easy for me to become obsessed with my own agenda. No, I shouldn't say it's easy; I'm always obsessed with my plan, me being in control from a to z. When the plan does not go along with what I've expected, I have a tendency to blame You for everything even when I am the one who have started the plan from the first place! Oh Lord, so here I am, praying. Lord, I confess that You are the king above all. Let Your light shine through my broken life; let the world see who is in control. Your will be done.
