Thoughts on the Way Home

Pressing On thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14)

April is finished and May has started. Last month may have brought with it many successes. We may feel things went generally well spiritually speaking. Or last month may have been a time of discouragement. It may have been hard-going to even keep our head above water. But neither of these really matters today. This month we will have to leave both behind.

Praise the Lord if things went well, but living on past victories simply will not work. Manna stored quickly rots (Exodus 16:19-20). But in the same way, past unbelief cannot hinder the present. The only thing that can hinder today is present unbelief. Will you believe Him today? Will you reckon what He says about you and the world true today? Will you cut ties to all unbelief and walk with Him today?
