Your Word for This Day: “Living Free of the Past”

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Philippians 3:13-14 NLT

Many times we are not willing, or able, to leave our past. But, that is exactly what we have to do if we are to move on with God.  Letting go of the past whether it was good or bad is never easy but it is something that we must do to access all that God has in store for us.

Every day with Jesus must be deeper and better than the day before. There will always be something new to learn and understand in God’s Word. As we let go of that which we have already attained or received from God and press on for more of Him, we will daily learn new truths in His Word and new aspects of His character. God wants you to know Him more.  He can be known through all His creation, through the study of His Word and through the many different ways He chooses to reveal Himself.

Today be determined to press through all hindrances and obstacles that will try to stop you from knowing God in His fullness.  There is so much more to attain.  Go for it.  You will find Him as you search for Him with all your heart.

Lord, today I pray that You would give me the ability to seek You with all my heart.  May You become so real and important to me that I will willingly pay the price to know You more. In Jesus’ name I pray.   Amen.
