Taking Your Next Steps

Philippians 3:13-14 NASB  “forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

The Why

If you don’t… 

You’ll never reach your destination.

You’ll get left behind.

You’ll get run over.

2 Corinthians 10:3-4 NASB  “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.

Ephesians 6:12 NASB  “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

1 Peter 5:8 NASB  “Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”

James 2:15-17 NASB  “If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself.”

The How

Identify the next step.

Matthew 7:7 NASB  “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”

Isaiah 30:21 NASB  “Your ears will hear a word behind you, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ whenever you turn to the right or to the left.”

Take it!

James 2:17 NASB “Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself.”

Deuteronomy 1:6 NASB  “The Lord our God spoke to us at Horeb, saying, ‘You have stayed long enough at this mountain.’”

Keep moving forward!

Matthew 14:22-33
