Go Forward!

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." Isaiah 43:18-19

Have you ever attempted to drive your car backwards for any length of time? It would be very stressful  and tiring focusing backwards over your shoulder, trying to maintain a normal speed and staying on the road.

Life should be lived going 'forward' not in reverse. Often times people want to go back to the past and try to 'fix' something but the past is gone, forever. God intends for us to look ahead for the glory which is to come. Looking back serves no useful purpose.

Is there a situation in your life you've been having a hard time forgetting and moving on?  Now is the time to ask God to help you and focus on today. 

PRAYER:  At times Lord it is so hard to forget something. It does me no good to dig up the past. Help me have strength to live for today! In Jesus' name. Amen.
