“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14, KJV
Have you ever been moving forward in what God has called you to do, then all of sudden, out of nowhere, things begin to happen, and before you realize it, you have stopped your pursuit? You stopped witnessing. You stopped preparing yourself. You started looking for answers, instead of praying for answers. Those things have come to stop and hinder you from doing the will of God.
Don’t allow them to. Keep your mind on the Lord. Put your attention on the assignment at hand and what you know to do. You may not know everything, yet move forward in what you do know and keep praying regarding your circumstance. You may be experiencing a financial challenge, but don’t let it distract you. You may need some answers right now, but don’t let it distract you. Keep your eyes on Jesus and on living for Him.
Trouble can chain you and put you at a stand still if you allow it to. Feelings are temporal, yet we don’t live by them–we maneuver around them. Keep living by faith.
Let nothing stop you.
Prayer: Thank You Father for encouraging me. All of a sudden, this just came out of the blue. This is a distraction, and the devil is trying to hinder me. I will not let this stop me. Help me to maneuver around it all and keep my eyes on You Jesus. I put my attention on You now, and I am moving forward in what I know You want me to do. I am going to keep living for You. I will not be stopped. Glory to God! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
