Forget What’s Behind


 Forget What‘s Behind!


…But one thing I do: forgetting those things which are behind and pushing forward to what is ahead.

Philippians 3:13,


Many people don’t fully understand what it means to forget the past. One definition of the word “forget” is “to disregard intentionally, or to overlook.” You have to intentionally disregard your past so that it doesn’t keep you from moving forward. That means the good and the bad. If we’re not careful, even our past victories can keep us from rising higher if we get too comfortable where we are. God wants to take us from glory to glory, but if we don’t let go of the old, we’ll never be able to embrace the new. It’s time to forget what lies behind. Put it away once and for all. When you release it, it’s an act of your faith. Focus all your faith on moving forward. Trust that God has new levels of victory, peace and favor. Trust that He’s working all around you on your behalf. As you forget what lies behind and press forward, you will see the abundant life Our God has in store for you!


Father, thank you that you have made all things New in my life- I choose to forget the past today. I don’t want anything to hold me back from the future You have prepared for me. I choose forgiveness and thank You that You are helping me in every area of my life!  By Your Spirit I am pressing forward.

In Jesus Name. Amen!

Love in His Grace, Pastor Joe.
