🛎 PRESS FOR HIGHER GROUNDS
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
🗓 Monday, 24th April, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.”

The discipline of getting more efficient at what you have been given to do coupled with the practice of pressing for more excellence is vital to gaining promotion in life and with God. It is an error to live in the glory of your past, with no effort being made to deliver consistent results in the place of your present assignment.
Our scriptural text shows us something spectacular about Apostle Paul. This was a man who did ministry at an extraordinary level: he planted churches, discipled several sons, had insight into esoteric knowledge and endured much for the course of Christ. Yet, he is seen saying – ‘I count myself not to have apprehended’, ‘I reach forth unto those things which are before’. How instructive!
The message is clear; however far you might have come with God, there is a level yet deeper. Do not relent; there are greater heights to attain in your field of endeavour too. Don’t allow the ‘I have arrived’ syndrome ground you. Push for more productivity!
