I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
Philippians 3:13-14 (NLT)
It is so easy to live in the past. Remorse, grief, disappointment, bitterness; so many painful emotions can keep us in a state of limbo. Paul had regrets, he had persecuted Christians. Paul had disappointments and hardships but he knew the secret to living with all of life’s ups and downs. He pressed on. He knew when the appropriate time came, it was time to forget. It was time to quit looking behind and trust God for the future. God doesn’t remain in the past and neither should we. Today, what is keeping there? What has you locked in painful emotions? Give it to God. Forget the past and look forward to what God has ahead. He is not finished with you yet!
Father, I have hung on to my past. Today, I surrender to You. I quit looking back with regret, sorrow, remorse and bitterness and will look forward with anticipation, joy and excitement toward what lies ahead. Today, I choose to trust You. In Jesus’ name.
