“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” Philippians 3:13-14, KJV.
God and His promises are always in front of you, not behind you. You may have had setbacks. You may feel there’s too much ground to cover at your age. You may have lost it in your past, yet it will only be restored with an amazing God in your future. You cannot change where you have been. It is all ahead of you. This is a guarantee. It will not escape your hands. It will not and cannot elude you. It will be sitting there within the plan of God. People to help and bless will be awaiting you. Wisdom and resources will be awaiting you. Opportunities, relationships and honor will be awaiting you. You will be restored and made new when you move forward into the will of God.
This is not a dangling carrot. This is not a place in Him you can only hope to obtain. With the leading of the Holy Spirit, you can arrive there. It is indeed a place, and you know when you are in it. The perfect will of God is that you become who you are. You’re experiencing using your gifts there. You are fulfilled because you are pleasing the Father there. You are producing for Him and you are the greatest blessing there. You have stepped into what God has called you to do for your life. He is calling you to this place of victory and you must now press into it. Your victory lies in moving forward.
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your Word and that I can move forward into what you have for my life. I ask for a focused mind and heart. I ask to help me move at the pace You want me to. Help me to allow nothing in the past to keep me from moving forward into every victory, every blessing. Forward is victory. Thank You Lord! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
