Reaching forward

Daily Thought

Your Word for 22 July 2024

Genesis 48:21
Then he said to Joseph, ‘Look, I am about to die, but God will be with you and bring you back to the land of your fathers.’

A Forward ApproachWe need to have a ‘reaching forward’ attitude. This attitude includes the ability to embrace the new and the things that lie before us. The Bible tells us that God has set before us an open door, but it is no good staring at the door or camping at the door. We have to move through the door into the next thing that God has got for us.
I have seen people who have camped at an open door of opportunity for so long that when they eventually decide to move through the door, it has closed. We should be asking and keeping on asking, we should be seeking and keeping on seeking, we should be knocking and keeping on knocking and we should be reaching forward and continually reaching forward.  Reaching forward or taking ground (possessing) is part of the life God has for you! This applies to all aspects of our lives.

Philippians 3:13 one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.

The challenge is to let this become the one thing we do!
