“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)

The enemy will do anything he can to keep us dwelling on the past — but Jesus is calling us FORWARD and UPWARD to our true destiny! And this destiny is often something we must fight for (in our thoughts and emotions) and choose daily. BUT IT IS SO WORTH IT!!!


“Forgetting what is BEHIND and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14)

Today is the first day of the rest of your life…really.  There is magnificent Grace in the Blood of Jesus and in His indwelling Spirit, to deliver us from the ghosts and regrets of the past. All that nasty stuff from the past is BEHIND you, so LOSE it!!!  May we all, by faith, take advantage of that Grace today — to forget what is behind and to go further up and further in.

And I believe there are a few helpful, practical keys to attaining this victory:  (1)  Truly understanding the victory Jesus has won for us by His victory on the Cross.  (2) Knowing Jesus personally and tangibly experiencing His Presence.  (3) Being baptized or filled with the Holy Spirit.  (4) Walking in the callings and purpose He has for your life.  Nothing will make the disappointments and regrets and hurts of the past disappear faster than to experience these realities.
