Last night I was meditating on “I press on” from Philippians 3:14.
I press on: through every distraction; through each temptation to be weary; through every thought that begins to wander into a futile dialogue. No matter what the obstacle, we press on to press through. We keep on going beyond what is trying to stop us.
A runner in a race looks forward, never allowing anything on the sidelines to distract. One moment of breaking focus impedes progress. We are to run with perseverance. Beware of sideline issues, and goal defeaters. Hebrews 10;36 says, “For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise.”
Pressing on is a mentality, or mind set. It is a way of thinking and processing that actively resists weariness and defeat.
