Our Life… & Work… Part XVI

Why settle? No really, why settle for anything less than God’s absolute best. I’ve now made my mind up to no longer settle for anything…because in Christ, I don’t need to, for greater is He who is IN me, then he who is in the world. I am more than a conqueror through Christ and rather than settling for second best in my life, I’m pressing in toward the prize of the upward call of Christ. Good enough can no longer be good enough cause that’s settling. I’m now striving to do my best and to always put my best foot forward. I won’t strive for perfection, rather, I’ll strive to do my best and then some.

1 John 4:4 (ESV) Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

Romans 8:37 (ESV) No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

Philippians 3:14 (ESV) I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

2 Timothy 2:15 (NIV) Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

Philippians 4:13 (ESV) I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
