We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair.
Many times when we feel as though there is no hope and see no end to what is happening as Paul says, press on. We have hope in Christ and that is where we set our goals. The things of this world will end for us all someday day but what hope is there in the things of this world? There is none.
There is only one hope and that is in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
Far too many times we put our hope into the life we have and the people we know but that isn’t lasting, it’s Christ that fulfills the lasting things for your eternal life with Him.
In this way we can put our hope there and not foresee a bleak future but a glorious hope that is in Him.
Press on to that hope, press on to that place that Christ has led you to. For it is not flesh and blood that leads you to that hope but the Spirit of truth. The Spirit that sustains you in times of distress and hopelessness. But you see that God is the sustainer of all things and to only look to Him for all your hopes and needs.
When all things feel bleak, press on
When the future holds nothing but pain, press on
When you think you are alone in this world, you have the Holy Spirit, press on
When those who do not want to accept your sharing the Lord’s gospel, press on
When people turn their back on you, the Lord does not, press on
When someone lies about you or judges you, the Lord knows the truth, press on
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. All of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you.
