Press Toward The Mark

From the moment we are born, we are programmed to set goals. In our early years these goals are placed on us by someone. As we grow, we start setting goals for ourselves. Some we reach, others we do not. 

We all strive for greatness in this life, but what about our Christian life? Are we content with just going through the motions, or are we striving for greatness?

Philippians 3:14

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Mankind does great things every day. I believe God wants us to do so much more. I believe He wants us to do the impossible. 

Matthew 14:22-29

In these few verses, God gives us three conditions for anyone wanting to do the impossible. All three conditions must be met if we are to succeed. 

1. We must ask. 

As simple as that, we must first ask. Notice what Peter said in vs 28, “Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.” Not only did he ask, but he was specific in what he asked. 

2. Don’t let conditions get in the way. 

Peter did not let the storm dictate his progress. Nothing was going to prevent him from walking on water. If you are waiting on the time, or the conditions to be right, you will never do the impossible. 

3. ACT

Easy in theory, difficult in reality. It would not have mattered, and we would have never known that Peter asked,and looked beyond the circumstances if he had stayed on the boat. The impossible became the possible when Peter put his trust in God and stepped out of the boat. 

Yes! You can do the IMPOSSIBLE!
