Forget the Past

Philippians 3 from NLT

12 I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me.

13No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,

14 I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.

15 Let all who are spiritually mature agree on these things. If you disagree on some point, I believe God will make it plain to you.

16 But we must hold on to the progress we have already made.

There are a lot of people who use their past as an excuse for their present. It shouldn’t be this way. Why? Because our past doesn’t control us, it’s the past. I know its not easy because i’ve been there but imagine finally saying ‘NO’, ‘I’m not going to let my past dictate my future’. It can be done though if you have strength. I’m not talking about strength in yourself. I’m talking about gaining strength from God. If you believe He created the universe, then what power He must have and He will impart some strength to you. if you love and give your life to Him. He’ll give you a spirit of power to conquer anything! Its difficult to try to be ‘perfect’ when you don’t have a role model to look up to. Even when you try to have a role model in man, they themselves aren’t perfect so how can you be from their teachings? Its possible that they may have only a few imperfections, but following them can be dangerous because at times they may not have your best interests at heart. This is why we should follow Jesus Christ and His teachings. He loves you so very much and He wants the very best for you. Just press on, don’t look back, its not worth it, look forward with hope and allow Yahuwshua to look down from heaven, see you changing and really living your life. Yahuvah is behind you, you’re never alone. Never look back!
