You're Making More Progress Than You Think

By Allen White

Let all who are spiritually mature agree on these things. If you disagree on some point, I believe God will make it plain to you. But we must hold on to the progress we have already made. Philippians 3:15-16

What are the spiritually mature agreeing on? Going back to the previous verse, the agreement is: “So let's keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us” (MSG). So, what happens when other things take priority or when we question God’s direction for our lives? God will clear up our blurry vision. God will “make it plain.”

God will remove anything from our lives that hinders our ability to reach the goal. Some people take that as “God doesn’t want me to have any fun.” While God is more concerned about our holiness than our happiness, God is not opposed to fun. In fact, a major theme of Philippians is joy!

Paul encourages to “hold on to the progress we have already made.” God is still moving us forward. What we don’t understand, He will clear up.

What doesn’t make sense in your life right now? How might God be using that to get you to the goal?
