RIGHTLY INSPIRED ;
(Be Driven To Always Win)
👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
📖 TO THE BIBLE
Philippians 3:13-14 NIV “Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
Think about this: Consider your classroom where all your fellow students are studying the same course. Among them, some are reading very hard, so they don’t fail the exams. Perhaps they had failed in some previous exams. Then you have these other students who are reading very hard as well, because they want to have excellent grades. They want to win a prize. Though all these students are reading hard, their motivations are different, and that’s how it is in life. That someone is working so hard doesn’t mean he’s in the right direction. It all depends on what his inspiration is. You should always be inspired by the dream of success, and not the fear of failure.
Refuse to be haunted by past mistakes; rather, be challenged by the opportunity of a greater future. Many whine and grumble about their past, sorrowing about their past, wondering what to do about their past, instead of looking at the future with the hope and the opportunities it presents for greater success. Irrespective of the challenges or shortcomings experienced in the past, be inspired by the joy of winning. See the bright and glorious future ahead of you.
Paul said, “…one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize…” (Philippians 3:13-14). Don’t think failure. Don’t think defeat. Through the power of the Spirit, see only victories and endless possibilities. You’re born to win; and the Lord is leading you on a victory parade. Forget the past; take a hold of your future, and win!

Dear Lord, you’ve equipped me with strength. You made my feet like the feet of a deer and set me secure on the heights. You’re the strength and glory of my life! In you I live, and move and have my being. I’m triumphant today and always by your Spirit. Hallelujah!
