Stop Looking Back

Staring into Past

Life is full of successes and failures. Many are waiting to exhale - but successes and failures happens to us all. Your financial status, education, position, or our anointing does not exclude us from experiencing hurt and pain. It would be so wonderful to forget our past mistakes, failures, and only remember our achievments, days we were happy, and life being good. Unfortunately, these bad memories seemingly chase us into every new season. Whereas we remain content, we are sgnificantly hindered and stiffled to move into an even better future because we are staring into our past. Consequently, we abort all the wonderful things that God has granted us - love, abundance, prosperity, health. Listen to this,

Phillippians 3: 13-14 says, "Brethern I do not consider, that I have captured and made it my own (yet); but one thing I do (it is my own aspiration); forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead. I press on toward the goal to win the (supreme and heavenly) prize, to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward."

Apostle Pauls instruction to us is to let our past lie behind. This type of attitude requires work and will never be perfect. However, we must strain forward to whats better. We only cling to the past because it is familar even though it was painful. When we truly become grateful and thankful for what we have, we can see clear that "NOW" is better than "what was." Our future will always be better than our past. So, we cannot afford to try to move forward while looking back. New joy, new miracles, new breakthroughs, new happiness, etc. is ahead. Why don't you get up and let your past lie and run head first into a brighter and glorious future. There is a prize - Christ Jesus is calling us upward!
