Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do : Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Truths to Rest My Heart:
All Paul had and did, he still pushes forward in his race. He is eager for what is ahead, and ready to move toward the goal that God has for him in Christ.
We are to focus on our own races, the ones God has called us to individually. That should be our focus, not looking back and wondering “what if”, but eyes straight ahead for what’s coming.
God in Christ is the main goal and prize. He has set individual races for all of us, and wants to run them with us. He wants our focus.
I can’t keep second-guessing myself and getting down and looking back, but really look forward in trust and belief that God is doing something new.
