Thought for Today
Tuesday, November 4, 2014
Keep pressing forward. Through experience I have come to understand that opposition can sometimes be an indicator that we are indeed on to something great—we’re on the right track. For example, you may have decided to enter a new business venture, say yes to a new project, or accept a new ministry role. For a while you find yourself on a beautiful road of productivity and then all of a sudden, seemingly out of nowhere, you are met with a barrage of set backs that threaten your continued progress and leave you uninspired and wanting to throw in the towel, but there is another answer.
Today if you find this is your reality, may you be encouraged to continue pressing forward. Though the struggle seems great, know that your actions are not futile. At the right moment, with just the right amount of investment, and in just the nick of time, you will break through that wall of opposition and begin sailing again on the calm waters of progress. Right now, think of this time as a training ground where you are forming the muscle stamina you will need at a later time along your journey, but if you don’t build it now, you will not have it when you need to call upon it, so with lots of love and inspiration, keep pressing!
“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:29-31)
