Press Forward

Avoid getting stuck.

Luke 19:10 – For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.

In a recent radio and television program “Turning Point,” Dr. David Jeremiah said he does not believe that the election, the pandemic, or anything else should cause Christians to miss what God has for them or cause them to veer from their God-given purpose. “The world needs Jesus no matter who’s in the White House,” he reminded his listeners. Christians should not get stuck in the turmoil of 2020 but believe that God’s best for their life is still ahead of them.

Dr. Jeremiah wants you to remember how powerful the presence of God is, which helps everyone fulfill their God-given dreams despite the crises America is currently facing. “If we stand firm in God, we can move forward,” he said.  “God never intended for us to get blown off course” by things like COVID, election results, or economic downturns. He says believers need to go through what is happening with the guidance of the Lord, not to get stalemated and fail to come out on the other side.

Remember that in Philippians 3:13, the Apostle Paul said, “One thing I do…”  He doesn’t say he has a long list of things to do. His focus is to press forward, forgetting the things that are behind him. Make that a singular goal today. Grab hold of God’s hand, and let Him lead you out of being stuck into moving forward with Him.

Pray With Us

Dear God in Heaven, thank You for the many illustrations in Your Word on how I am to think and act. Thank You for Dr. Jeremiah’s reminder that Your purposes for the salvation of many have not changed because one person or the other is in the White House. Help me keep my focus on my daily walk with You, for I know that I cannot make it on my own. You are so patient with me as You teach me to press on. Thank You for your constant faithful presence with me. I love You, Father, Amen.
