“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.”Philippians 3:12 NIV
Today, I want to challenge you to let go of some stuff and take hold of some stuff:
My friend, let go of trying to earn God’s love.
Take hold tightly to God’s grace.
Let go of your fear of failure.
Take hold of your faith in Jesus.
Let go of perfectionism.
Take hold of the vision Jesus has for your life.
Let go of habits that sabotage your growth.
Take hold of the hope of love’s transformation.
Let go of trying to control everything.
Take hold of trusting Jesus with it all.
Jesus doesn’t give up or let up and loves you so much that He will continually press you to press on.
“I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me.”
Philippians 3:12 MSG
Yesterday is gone, take hold of that which Christ Jesus has taken hold of you today.
