Forget the Former Thing - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotion 11 December Monday
"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past." (Isaiah 43:18, NIV)
Forget the Former Thing
often, people spend so much time and energy dwelling on the past,
dwelling on mistakes, or dwelling on disappointments. They don’t even
realize that their focus is keeping them from moving forward in life.
But in order to fully experience God’s blessings, you have to let go of
those past hurts. You have to forget the former things to make room for
has a new beginning in store for you, and the way you prepare for it is
by getting rid of the old. Don't spend time focusing on where you’ve
been; spend time focusing on where you’re going. When you “forget the
former things,” it means you’re not worried about the past anymore. You
don’t allow it to dictate your future. You may remember past events, but
you don’t feel the pain like you used to. You’ve opened your heart to
receive God’s healing. Begin today by declaring that your past is over!
Forget the former things and receive the restoration and victory God has
in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
thank You for the life of blessing and victory You have prepared for
me. I choose to forget the past. I choose to forgive. I choose to open
my heart to You and receive everything You have in store for me in
Jesus’ name. Amen."
