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 (Philippians 3:13).
Some people are so used to a certain way of life and comfortable with the status quo that they don't see something better; they're not challenged by new ideas and possibilities; don't be that way! Keep making progress. The Bible tells us about the man Isaac, who kept making progress: "And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great" (Genesis 26:13). This is God's desire for all his children: a life of unending progress and success.
The Bible says the path of the just is as a shining light, that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day (Proverbs 4:18). He expects you to be increasingly fruitful and productive in all your endeavours; it's your heritage if you're born again.
In your ministry as a Christian, in your business, academics, finances etc., what level are you currently, and how much more progress do you want to make? It doesn't matter how prosperous, successful, strong and influential you are right now, there's still so much more you can be, and can achieve. Don't rest on your oars; dare for more. Grow a discontent for your present level, and God will open your eyes to new potentials and possibilities. This doesn't mean to have inordinate ambitions, but that you'd be inspired by the dream of the greater successes and glories that lie ahead.
Refuse to have small dreams. For some people, their dream was to own a personal house, and have a car. The moment they built the house and bought the car, they went to sleep in their minds, thinking they'd arrived. Don't be that way; make progress on a consistent basis. Always, ask yourself, "What's the next big thing I can do for the Lord and my world?" Think advancement all the time.
I'm making progress and moving forward consistently by the Holy Ghost! My path is as a shining light, shining brighter and brighter unto the perfect day! Every step I take is a step of progress, prosperity, success and greatness. Halleluiah!
