Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence, talent will not, education will not. The world is full of educated derelicts (people who abandon their circumstances). Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The familiar slogan "PRESS ON" has solved and will always solve the problems of the human race. The Apostle Paul says in Philippians 3:13 "But the one thing I do (meaning if we do not do anything else), forgetting what is behind (everything that was not in the will of God for our lives LET IT GO today) straining toward what is ahead."
This will cause tension in our lives mentally, physically, and emotionally. While these feelings can be nerve racking because we may be anxious and or uncertain what the future may hold this is where faith must be applied and we're to "PRESS ON," Paul says.
Obstacles don't have to be boulders in our path, they can as a matter of fact be stepping stones to a higher purpose in which God has called us to. Hebrews 11:1,3 tells us that "Now (today this instant) faith is being sure or (destined) for what we do not see (naturally). "By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.
I encourage you today to Press On Baby! Even when your finite mind cannot perceive what the end is going to be. Run in such a way that others can clearly see your runner's tag that says, "My Name is Victory."
We don't see what we see until we see "Spiritually!"
