" There are people less qualified than you, doing the things you want to do , simply because they decided to believe in themselves. Period." Bill Purkey
God is calling for Big, Bold, Movement.
Our actions should consist of forgetting what's happened in the past, Learning from the mistakes and failures, and filtering the good out from the filth. To get up, and move like somebody requires motivation, determination and faith that what lies ahead of you will be greater than what was behind you.
This is a MOVE! BIG, BOLD, MOVEMENT.
To forgive and let go..
To pull up your pants and walk when you don't feel like it
To lay aside the weight of sin and judgment
This is a MOVE!
Take a position that nothing and nobody will interfere with your ability to accomplish and complete the assignments and tasks that are before you!
This is a MOVE!
The Apostle Paul speaks to the church of the Philippians and describes the Christian experience as a race.
Phil 3:9 " that I may win Him"
Jesus is the prize-to be found in HIM.
We are all guilty, we have all messed up. Paul says I have no righteousness. I depend on the righteousness of God through Faith in Jesus Christ.
Knowing "Him" is believing "Him".
Paul says "I am an imperfect man" . He doesn't know all things nor understands them all. But this he will do..He forgets what behind him..
The word "epekteinomeno" means stretched. Paul stretches himself in faith. He goes the extra mile to get the prize which is the High calling of God is Christ Jesus. Philippians 3: 14,15
On your mark, get set, go! BIG, BOLD, MOVEMENTS in Faith to get what God has for you! Moving forward may require getting rid of extra weight...Worry, doubt, fear, untrustworthiness, depression, poverty, lack, addictions, betrayal, unforgiveness, and hurt.
Moving Forward requires we forget some things and let some things go...
Heb. 12: 1 " ...Lay aside the weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us."
1 Peter 2:1 Wherefore lay aside all malice and all guile, and hypocrisy and envies, and all evil speaking.."
The BIG, BOLD MOVEMENT is to LET Go...
Even Disney made millions with a song titled "Let it go" in the movie Frozen in 2013 making 1.2 Billion dollars in the Box Office alone.The theme was embrace who you are and move forward.
Let us make BIG, BOLD Moves in Faith and be determined to move forward in 2020! This is a Move!
