Philippians 3:13&14 says this, “Brothers, I do not count myself to have attained, but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead. I press toward the goal to the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
Are you letting things from the past hold you back from what God has in store for you? Past hurts, offenses, wrong doings? It could be having a bad marriage or addictions that you’re allowing to keep you from pressing toward the goal; the prize of your high calling!
I have done the same thing! I have to work on myself daily. I have to remember that offenses help me grow into a better person. I try to take the bad and learn from it, and use it for the better! It helps us to be shaped and molded into who Christ wants us to be!
Don’t look back at things that might have hurt you; take those circumstances and let them make you a better person! Don’t live in the past! Live in the now, so you can keep pressing forward to what God has for you!
I believe that 99.9% of the time the bad things that have happened to you, were not to hurt you, but to build you up. So let Christ heal you today! Let Christ restore your heart today so you can move forward toward the Prize! I don’t know about you, but I like winning! And this is one journey I plan on finishing!
“Well done thy Good and Faithful Servant! You’ve been faithful over a few things, now I’ll make you ruler over many!” Luke 19:17 (paraphrased)
