Live Forward - Our Daily Bread Ministries daily devotion 11 August Friday
"…I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead" (Philippians 3:13, NLT)
you made the decision to forget the past? Many people don’t fully
understand what that means. They wonder, “How can I forget something
that’s happened to me?” But one definition of the word forget is to
disregard intentionally or to overlook. In other words, you have to
choose to disregard your past so that it doesn’t keep you from moving
forward. That means the good and the bad. Sometimes our past victories
keep us from rising higher as much as past failures. If we don’t let go
of the old, we’ll never be able to embrace the new.
doesn’t matter what’s happened in your history, it’s time to forget
what lies behind. Today, make the choice live forward. Trust that God
has a better future in store for you. Trust that He’s working behind the
scenes on your behalf. As you forget what lies behind and press
forward, you’ll move forward. You’ll see increase and blessing and live
the abundant life He has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
in heaven, today I choose to forget the past. I don’t want anything to
hold me back from what You have in store for my future. I choose
forgiveness. I choose peace. Help me, by Your Spirit, to press forward
into the life of blessing You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen."
