Things that hinder us from pressing on ~ Pst Belemina Obunge




13 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,

14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.


In other to exceed expectations in life, we must press on, steadily matching on. To press on means force is applied, you’re not accepting “no” as an answer, you’re coming against anything hindering you from going forth.

For one to press on in life, you need to have reliable relationships, there must be remarkable resilience, one must take responsible risks, one must reject rivals (whatever is opposing you from getting to your goal), and there must be righteous realignment.

For you to press on in life you must be determined that you want to reach your goal in life. Without a pressing on there cannot be a reaching forth! Many people have remained in their comfort zone, they just accepted their situation and so they haven’t experienced the beauty and pride God has for them.

Hindrances to our Pressing on

  1. A lukewarm attitude: when one is lukewarm they’ve settled themselves to having things just the way they are, they are accepting things just as they are. Revelation 3:15-17. When you are lukewarm you cannot achieve anything great in life! A lukewarm attitude hinders one from achieving goals in life, so many people are lukewarm about church, living a Holy life, and making Heaven and it shows in their attitude, when one is lukewarm there is a lack of enthusiasm and passion, it affects their performance in life because enthusiasm enhances performance. Lukewarmness is an enemy it greatness, Ecclesiastes 9:10. Your attitude is a reflection of your acceptance of a particular vision. For us to press on in any sphere of life let us deal with that hindrance of a lukewarm attitude.
  2. Limiting Beliefs: this is when you allow your beliefs to limit you from experiencing the breakthrough you should have, Matthew 21:21. If you have faith, it will affect what you do and determine what you say. Some people don’t press on in life because they begin to doubt and have limiting beliefs, Mark 9:23, align your confession with your desired vision.
  3. Lack of confidence and courage: confidence is the foundation on which courage presses on, it enables you to have courage in life, Joshua 1:9. Confidence in God’s presence enables you to go on with courage that God is with you. Confidence is the bedrock on which courage is built. (Phillipians 4:13), God’s presence makes all the difference,  when you are confident that He’s with you, you can go forward, Psalm 121:1.
  4. Luring distraction: Distraction is anything that takes your eyes away from your goal in life. Proverbs 4:25-27  Matthew 6:22-23 ( NIV). It is when we are focused on our purpose that we can deal with luring distractions.
  5. Languishing environment (an environment that drains you): an environment that Languishes takes away the beauty of your life. The environment you choose can determine what happens to your destiny. A languishing environment eats away at your destiny.
