I find myself preaching to myself every day.
Everyday I have to remind myself of certain things. Just like you, I get discouraged by my circumstances or someone says something or writes something negative about me and I get focused on the outward instead of keeping my eyes on Jesus.
This morning I have been preaching to myself.Here is my four point sermon. Hope it encourages you like it did me.
I. Move Past Your Past
Whether it’s been good or bad, you have to move on. Paul says to let go of the things that are behind and look forward. Let go of the things that have held you back or have held you down.
II. Embrace the Future
Charles Kettering said, “My interest in the future is because I am going to spend the rest of my life there.” God has an amazing future for you. The best is yet to come is not just a cute little saying but a mandate. Get excited about your future…God is!
III. Be the Right Person Now
Make the decisions that you know you need to make. Zig Ziglar says, “The best guarantee of a great tomorrow is a good today.” Pray, be in the word, be filled with God’s spirit and dress in the armor of God every day. Deliver what you promise.
IV.Stay the Course
It will get tough. You will feel like quitting! Stay the course. Stay focused. Be committed. Persevere through the obstacles. You can do it.
