Today’s verse

Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
—Philippians 3:13–14

Today’s reading
Philippians 3

Philippians 3:8-9 NLT
[8] Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ [9] and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.

Today’s devotion
Jesus Calling

THIS IS THE DAY THAT I HAVE MADE. Rejoice and be glad in it. Begin the day with open hands of faith, ready to receive all that I am pouring into this brief portion of your life. Be careful not to complain about anything, even the weather, since I am the Author of your circumstances. The best way to handle unwanted situations is to thank Me for them. This act of faith frees you from resentment and frees Me to work My ways into the situation, so that good emerges from it.
To find Joy in this day, you must live within its boundaries. I knew what I was doing when I divided time into twenty-four-hour segments. I understand human frailty, and I know that you can bear the weight of only one day at a time. Do not worry about tomorrow or get stuck in the past. There is abundant Life in My Presence today.

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
—Psalm 118:24

But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.
—Hebrews 3:13

Today’s prayer
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Lord and Savior. ‘I press on’ focusing on You, fighting off all distractions and attempts by the evil one to separate me from You. Knowing in You and through You, one step at a time. You will guide me through whatever crosses my path. This faith and hope I have in You because of You. Knowing the peace and comfort of oneness with You. I start my day in Your presence and praying without ceasing for me and mine, and lifting up those You place in my path. Please head my prayers. I love You, I’m sorry, forgive me, thank You. Amen
