I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Press! Not just because it sounds nice but because in order to make it to your next point you are going to have to!
1. Press- Act with steadily applied weight or force
We will have to steadily fight to get past what is in our way. Since there will always be some type of opposition make your prayer “Lord, give me strength to continue pressing on this journey in Jesus’ name, amen.”
2. Press- To hold closely as in an embrace, clasp
Press closer to God. Embrace the promises, His word, and His love during this time and always!
3. Press- Compress or squeeze as to alter in size or shape
We may have to alter some stuff to fit where we are going. Could be our schedules, outlook, etc. You may also feel like you are being crushed like a ball of clay but all I can say is let the potter do His work. No matter how uncomfortable, let Him work out all of the cracks and damages so that you are good as new when you get to your next destination. (Jeremiah 18:1-6)
4. Press- To extract juice, sugar from by pressure
Just like we may feel we are being crushed like clay you could be feeling squeezed like a lemon. Let Him do it. Let Him squeeze out all the things that need to be extracted. All the negative thoughts and things that are within us and around us need to be removed so we can perform optimally at our next destination.
Your call is great! You press to embrace His goodness and promises while He presses to make you an even awesomer you! You can handle it! You can! Now go get yo stuff!
