"Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it;
but one thing I do:
forgetting what lies behind
and reaching forward to what lies ahead,
I press on toward the goal
for the prize of the upward call of
God in Christ Jesus."
Are you a prisoner of emotional unrest?
Are you focusing on the past with such energy
that you cannot fully enjoy the blessings of the present?
The above verse speaks about
letting go of your past.
You may think it is impossible
to forget the past;
if that were true,
would the Holy Spirit
be encouraging you to let it go?
Today, why not begin all over again,
in the Holy Spirit's power?
Ask Him to enable you to diligently focus,
not on what lies behind,
but on what lies ahead.
Keep your eyes on the Shephard,
and ready yourself for enjoying the prize
that comes through obedience.
AND BY THE WAY
We will never be able to progress in our Christian life if we neglect
the ONE BOOK
God has given us!
The BIBLE is the
only book accompanied by its Author
That cannot be said about any other book in all the universe.
Trust His Word to meet your needs today!.
"Let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice:
let them ever shout for joy,
because thou defendest them;
let them also that love thy name
be joyful in thee."
( Psalm 5:11)
