TOPIC: A Life Of Unending Progress

TEXT: “And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great.” Genesis 26:13.

Damilola, a committed Christian and spirit filled sister graduated from the higher institution secured a good job with a telecoms company and got married. Ten months into her marriage she got a son who could not walk or sit down at age 3.

 I don’t want to call the ailment  a name, but the condition was critical that he  wears pampers like a new baby and lies down continually without recognizing anyone.  The family has done all they could to salvage the situation to no avail.

Damilola has come to agree with the saying that, “life is full of ups and downs.” Her submission to life is that everyone has a scare (secret or open). This has affected her mindset so much so that even on her job, she believes it’s full of ups and downs and so she accepts anything that happens to her at the work place.

There are so many those out there who believe life should be full of ups and downs, but that’s not what we are called to be and shouldn’t be your experience. Circumstances shouldn’t sway you from what is written about you.  

In our Bible passage, the man moved upward and forward until he became great. That should be your experience you’ve been ordained to journey only in one direction – upward and forward.   A life of progress and advancement is the life to which you re called. . Therefore, develop a mentality that’s consistent with who you are in Christ.

Just like Abraham, you have the nature to be absolutely successful;  you’re an heir of God, and a joint heir with Christ. Allowing thoughts of defeat dwell in your system will only make you be contrary to what the Word says about you. Refuse it!

Am I saying the Christian race is smooth all the way? Absolutely No.  Challenges will come, but you mustn’t dwell in them to a point of accepting them as part of us. As a child of God, that’s not His design for you. The design for you is victory over every situation, which is the upward direction.

He said in Proverbs 4:27, “Turn not to the right hand nor to the left………….” He wants you to go in the direction of the Word. God wants you to journey in one direction only – upward and forward. Refuse to turn to the right or to left, because the distractions and detractors  are waiting to grab your attention; focus on the victory that Christ has won for us. Set yourself on course, on the victory lane.

Proverbs 4:18 says,” But the light of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” You must understand that there shouldn’t be ups and downs in your life. Don’t allow it!  Please, do not try to figure it out with your earthly mentality; look upwards, and go forward only.  Your life is the story of unending progress.  So shall it be unto you, until the day of His appearing.


A life of unending progress is packaged in redemption; it can only be made possible by the spirit of God.  If you are yet to receive Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, being born again, this is the time to do so; the sure way for heaven to back you up to live your life in upward and forward direction is for you to be born again, so as to be connected with God and Jesus is the only way to God.

Make Jesus the Lord and master of your life by praying this prayer:

Lord Jesus, I know I’m a sinner, And I believe you died for me, I surrender my life to you this minute, Please come in and cleanse me with your blood, From now on, you are the master of my life.

I’m cleansed, I’m saved and I’m born again, until the day of your appearing, In Jesus’ name, Amen!
