Press toward the mark for the prize... Phil 3:14
The word 'press' implies that some exertion is required to achieve the goal. When we press a button, we focus energy through our fingers and produce pressure to cause that button to depress. When we press toward the mark for Christ - we also have to exert energy to make anything happen. That 'press' is in His word and at work in His ministry. Likewise for our weightloss goals. If we don't 'press' or exert energy, we won't lose weight. You have to get moving and continue eating the foods that God has designed to cause your body to operate optimally. All of these 'presses' work together. We are 3 part beings; mind, body and spirit. We have to fulfill the needs of each of our parts so that we may operate optimally.
If we don't 'press' ourselves we won't acheive our goals. Nothing worth having happens by accident. Press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Pray and ask God to order your steps and strengthen your walk - in Him, in weightloss, in LIFE. Don't exclude God from any area of your life. He wants to be in it. Pray without ceasing. Read His word and find out what He desires for you today. Pray.
