Forget The Past And Move Ahead

“Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, 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” (Phil. 3:13-14).

Get ready for the future by getting over your disappointments, depression, anxiety, and regrets. There are a lot of people who don’t even realise that they are dealing with disappointments and regrets. How do we keep thoughts of our past regrets or sorrows from creeping into our minds? They may creep in quickly before we get the chance to rebuke them, and therefore, they may impact us. We can be bold and confident as Paul. To press forward – to strive, with hands outstretched and reaching whatever lies ahead. Maybe you are one of those people who reflect on what’s going on in your life, and you realise certain events in your life have certain amount of disappointments and regrets attached to them.

The apostle says it this way, ‘You have been told how I used to live when I was devoted to the Jewish religion, how I persecuted without mercy the church of God and did my best to destroy it’ (Gal. 1:13). Certain events and memories come up and there are regrets attached to them, but if you meditate on the word of God and speak it out, it will displace those feelings, it will heal and replace them with truths. Our Lord Jesus is taking our hand and leading us forward even through our regrets and disappointments through His word. Through the entrance of God’s word, and what it does in your life, whenever those memories come up, you can resist them like you will resist sin or an intruder in your house. Be ready for whatever plans He has made that will give you that promised hope and joy.
