Press Toward The Mark

For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away. (1 Peter 1:24)
Flesh… the fragile, temporary things that will always change, wither and cannot last forever.
We grieve over the job we didn’t get, the house we can’t buy and the relationships that change.
God says these things are like grass, beautiful for a short season then gone.
He sees what we can’t see. This life is a mere breath or vapor compared to our eternity and is not worthy of grief or sorrow!

We have earthly minds making it hard to grasp eternity.
God calls you into the depth of Him and asks for childlike faith. Your earthly life is only preparation for the eternal life.
TODAY: I open my hands and I release plans, expectations, agendas and consciously let you lead!
But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you. (1 Peter 1:25)
When I read this devotion it blessed me so much. So often we are mislead by our own expectations, agendas and plans. Today, I pray you choose to open your hands and release plans, expectations, agendas and let Him lead. After reading this devotion I had to do some self reflection myself. I pray you do the same.
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:14)
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
