“Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” Philippians 3:13-14, NKJV.
There are some things in our past that we can’t do anything about or change. There’s nothing you can do to gain that time back. No repeats. No do-overs. Absolutely nothing.
It can be tough, but we have to come to accept that. It holds us up from hearing God now, seeing God now. No one sees us, but like an old car that is done, it’s past its age, past its prime, we’re still tinkering around with what those years could have been like, what we should have done, who gave us bad advice, who betrayed us. Stop tinkering with the past.
The goal isn’t to change your journey. The goal is to complete it. It is to find out what God is saying to you and then, to the best of your ability, do what He says to walk out His plan for your life. It’s great to know in spite of the past, there’s still a great plan for you! God says it’s still intact. Let go and take hold of the Holy Spirit’s leading, and I am a living witness, he will still get you there.
Prayer: Father, I praise you and thank you for speaking to me in a real way. I have to let it go and move with you now. Help me to stop tinkering with the past and embrace my now. Help me see and hear you right now. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
