Heartlight Daily Verse, with Phil Ware Devotionals

A thought and prayer to start your day

 

July 28
 
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
 
Thoughts on today's verse
 
The way to walk a tightrope is to keep one's sight on the goal, not on the ground or what is behind. The way to walk with Jesus is to keep our eyes on the goal, his victory waiting for us when he returns, not on the ground (our failures) and not what is behind (our accomplishments). The goal of the Christian walk is to keep walking toward Jesus until we walk with him in heaven.
 
Prayer:
 
Lord, I look forward to the day when you call me by name and walk hand in hand with me. Until that day, help me fix my eyes on what you want me to be and not what I've done. By your grace I ask it. Amen.
