Forgetting What is Behind
Scripture: Philippians 3:  Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
Observation: Why can’t I forget the past? I still find myself reliving things that are already over. I know God has a plan for my life and He reveals something each day. That is what I should be focused on so I don’t miss anything. I need to strain harder towards what God’s plans are and not dwell on the past.
Application: Realize what God has gotten me through. Not dwell in the past, but use it to show me how God has been faithful to fulfill His purpose in my life. Look forward with excitement on what God has planned for me each day and keep my eyes open so I don’t miss anything.
Prayer: Dear Lord open my eyes to what you are doing. Give me the excitement of a small child on Christmas morning, looking forward to the gifts you will give me this day.
