...but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
You can’t go forward if you’re always looking back.
Shake off low expectations, shake off what somebody told you that you can’t do. They don’t determine your destiny, God does.
No matter what has happened in the past, learn from your mistakes of course But look to Christ as your success, wisdom, comfort and strength, and see Him doing a new thing in your life by His unmerited favor.
See Him giving you stronger and blessed relationships through His wisdom and grace. See Him giving you a better job with better benefits. See Him restoring your health sevenfold. Consider not “the things of old,” but consider or meditate on His better promises (Hebrews 8:6). That’s how you move forward into His good success! Believe and receive His Promises!
Love in His Grace, Pastor Joe
