"PRESS ON!!" This is the "Rhema" word - spoken word - of encouragement for each one of us today.

Bible says that Christian life is like a race with the runners running in their tracks (I Corinthians 9:24). Like every race, here too we have rules and regulations. If we are out of track forever, we are disqualified forever. However, God is still compassionate and kind and comes in all His mercy to set us back on the right track. The runners in this "marathon race" would become discouraged, weary, and backslide and say, "I can't run any more, I give up!," but the HEAVEN WITH ALL ITS CHEERLEADING TEAM says to the runners, "come on, press on, move forward, you can do it....march forward, get up and get going, don't give up!!"

I do believe that God has called each one of us for a great destiny. We are called to soar high into the skies. Therefore, we are never to let the circumstances cloud our vision from that HIGH CALLING. Apostle Paul says, "I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 3:14.

I Corinthians 9:24 says, "Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize." In Christian race, every one has a prize of their own. We need not worry that someone might snatch our prize away, because each one of us have a GUARANTEED PRIZE. There is no insecurity in Jesus as He is our SECURITY. This is absolutely not the CORPORATE RAT RACE. This is a race that has to be run with patience, encouraging the fellow runners, lifting up the ones that have fallen to the ground in their tracks, at the same time looking on to the AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH RACE, the very PRIZE - JESUS.

We are so much encouraged by the TRUTH today that Heaven is encouraging us saying, "KEEP PRESSING ON TOWARDS THE HEAVENLY, ROYAL PRIZE IN JESUS!!!" God Bless You!!!
