Have you ever noticed how easy it is for us in our human nature to become complacent, feel stuck or simply give up? There are times in life that we either want to quit due to the climb or we become discouraged due to the obstacles in our path. Many times this occurs due to witnessing the lack of faith in others or for simply listening to the discouragement in someone else. But when we learn to change our focus from the world and then place our eyes & ears upon the Promises of God then He will ignite the fire that carries us forward as we learn to trust & obey.
The object is knowing that we are on the path that He leads and recognizing that this life is not a bed of roses. There is a reason and a purpose for the wilderness in life to teach and help prepare us for the destination ahead. May you be encouraged today to go the extra mile and to stay focused on the Promises of God!!!
“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Philippians 1:6
