March 31: Keep Your Eyes on the Goal

"Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may
lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. Brethren, I do not regard myself
as having laid hold of it yet; but one 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 3:12-14

If we want to accomplish meaningful and important endeavors, it is critical that we stay focused
on our goals. There is always going to be distractions and obstacles along the way. Nothing of
value has ever been accomplished without effort. The difference between people who reach
their goals and those who do not is not the absence of obstacles but the commitment to
overcome them.

The calling of God on our lives is a high and noble thing, and it is worthy of our pursuit and full
effort. When we allow difficulty to deter us from following God, we demonstrate that we do
not fully appreciate the importance of what we are meant to do for Him. In truth, god does not
need us to accomplish His purposes, but He allows us to be a part of His work in His grace. The
work we are doing for Him deserves our very best.

Renewal Principle

Focusing on what matters most allows us to overcome the obstacles and hardships to reach our
goals.
