Paul said in Phil. 3:13-14″Brethern, 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.(14) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus”.
In the Christian realm we must continue to strive for perfection. We can`t afford to get caught up in the day-to-day struggles because God says bring your burdens to Him and leave them there. And be about the business of Kingdom work. Matthew says seek ye first the kingdom of God and everything else will be added unto you. If there ever has been a time that we as Christians need to be on the battlefield, it is right now.
I know it get`s hard sometimes but we must remember there can be no testimony without a test.
And that the only difference between ordinary and extraordinary is the amount of DETERMINATION!!!
Fight on, paydays coming.
And I`m so glad we don`t have to wait until we get to heaven to get our rewards.
God will reward us while we are here for our FAITHFUL service.
So remember this,
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will. When the road you`re trudging seems all up hill. When the funds are low, and bills are high. And you want to smile, but you have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit,Rest if you must, but don`t you dare quit. God will see you through.
