What was your past like? Have you made a decision to forget the things of your past? Many people don’t fully understand what that means. They wonder, “how can I forget something that’s happened to me?” But one definition of the word forget is to disregard intentionally, or to overlook. In other words, you have to choose to disregard your past so that doesn’t keep you from moving forward. That could mean the good and the bad. 

Sometimes our past victories keep from rising higher as much as past failures. Sometimes if we don’t let go of the , we’ll never be able to embrace the new. It doesn’t matter what’s happened in your history, it’s time to forget what lies behind and in the present – live forward.

, make the choice to move forward. Trust that God has a better future in store for you. Trust that He’s working on your behalf. As you forget what lies behind and press forward, you’ll automatically move forward. You’ll see increase and blessing, and live the abundant He has in store for you with excitement and vitality!

“I on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead”

(Philippians 3:13, NLT)

With Me
Yahweh, today I choose to move beyond my past. , I don’t want anything to hold me back from what You have in store for my future. I choose forgiveness and peace. God, help me, by Your Spirit, to press forward into the life of and excitement You have in store for me, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.

A special word from the Lord, from Pastor Ray Patrick.
