Fiercely Pressed In

[Thursday, September 18]

“Even like the Syrophenician woman pressed in for a miracle, press in at this hour. Be among those who are fiercely pressed in for the things of My Kingdom. Don’t let them pass you by, for they are already yours.”

Prophetic Scripture:

The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it (Luke 16:16).

Luke 16:16 was written regarding the many Gentiles who would press themselves into the Kingdom of God after hearing the Gospel preached. The word presseth in this verse means to force your way in. A great example of this was with the Syrophenician woman in Mark 7:27. She came to Jesus for the deliverance of her daughter who was possessed of a devil. Jesus told her that it wasn’t right to take the children’s bread and give it to dogs. He said that because she wasn’t a daughter of Abraham, the healing covenant didn’t belong to her. Do you think that caused her to give up? No way! She responded to Jesus by saying, “Lord, even dogs get the crumbs that fall from the children’s table.” Instead of
walking away, she pressed in even harder to get what she came for.

As believers who have heard the Gospel, we are already pressed into the Kingdom of God through salvation, so now the covenant of God belongs to us. We aren’t dogs; we are children! We have a right to God’s Kingdom, so let’s not take it for granted. Let’s be fiercely pressed in and not allow one blessing to pass us by!


Father, I thank You that I am a child of God and all the blessings of the Kingdom are mine. I press into the Kingdom today and will not allow any blessings to pass me by. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
