This condemnation is from the "Father of Lies" ... who's only hope in destroying God's plan for our life is to convince us to give up or give in, and forget the glorious victory that Jesus Christ completed at Calvary. Our Heavenly Father calls us to persevere ... to press on ... and through His strength ... He will carry through to the finish line.
Philippians 3 -
All our "worldly gain" is loss:
7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
8 Yes doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ.
12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13 Brothers, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth to those things which are before,
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
