“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.
God and His promises are always in front of you, not behind you. The reality is you cannot change where you’ve been. 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 ahead of you. This is a guarantee. 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. Provision, opportunities, relationships, and honor will be awaiting you. You will be restored and made new when you move forward.
The Father’s perfect will is that you become who you are in Christ and that you live an abundant life. 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 His will, and you know when you are in it. You are fulfilled because you are pleasing the Father there. You’re experiencing using your gifts there. 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 even in these times, you must now press into it. Let go of the past, and move forward into what God has for you.
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your Word. I ask that You help me let go of the past and move forward into what You want me to be. I will not allow anything to keep me from moving forward into every victory and every blessing that awaits me. I ask for a focused mind and heart. My victory is in moving forward. Thank You, Lord! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
