God has a hold of you for a reason you haven’t even begun to know yet. 

Don’t stop going after all God has for you just because you are not where you want to be.

Sometimes the journey seems long when you see how far you still have to go, sometimes the journey seems short when you look at all Jesus has already done in you.

Even Paul the apostle felt this way, so don’t be so hard on yourself when you do.

“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. 

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead, I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus.”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:12-14‬ ‭NIV

What God has for you has nothing to do with who you think you are or who you think you are not but it has everything to do with who HE is.

Go after Jesus and let Him do the work He wants to do in you.

He is working the past out of you so that you can embrace the future He has for you.

Keep going. Keep pursuing. Press on. 

Hold On

“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

Let go of trying to earn God’s love.

Hold on tightly to God’s grace.

Let go of your fear of failure.

Hold onto your faith in Jesus.

Let go of perfectionism.

Hold onto the vision Jesus has for your life.

Let go of habits that sabotage your growth.

Hold onto the hope of transformation.

Let go of trying to control everything.

Hold onto 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, press on today to take hold of that which Christ Jesus has taken hold of you.

Press Through

  

“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)

What has Christ taken hold of you for?

To limp along in compromise?

To go back to old dead destructive habits?

To hold onto the past?

No.

He took hold of you to walk with Him.

To run the race set before you.

To go forward in new holy habits.

To look toward the future with hope and the assurance that whatever it holds, Jesus will walk with you there.

Press through the fear of failure.

Press through discouragement to grab hold of God’s courage.

Press through the temptation to quit now before you even get started.

Don’t give up and don’t go back.

Jesus Christ has taken hold of you for a reason, press through and find out what it is.

Goals

  

The important thing about goals is not just having them, but having the right ones.

“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (‭Philippians‬ ‭3‬:‭14‬ NIV)

Don’t waste your life going after goals to make yourself more comfortable.

Go after Jesus– his love, his agenda, his goals for your life (which has more to do with who you are than what you look like and giving more than getting).

Life following Jesus is not comfortable or easy. It is unique, unexpected and adventurous.

At the end of your life, you may or may not have human praise and awards.

What you will have is rich relationships, miraculous moments and the most important thing you can have with you as you step into eternity – Jesus.

The prize.

Keep this goal in your soul and all the other goals will quickly fall into their proper perspective.

Go after Jesus.

“So let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision—you’ll see it yet! Now that we’re on the right track, let’s stay on it.” (‭Philippians‬ ‭3‬:‭15-16‬ MSG)
