Topic: Releasing Your Past To Access Your Future [Monday May 7, 2018]
Scripture: Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. Philippians 3:13.
Thought For The Day: You cannot walk backwards into tomorrow.
Previously, we established that there are destiny capsules a person needs in order to have a healthy and buoyant destiny. Just as capsules boost one’s health in the physical, there are also spiritual destiny capsules that are needed for destiny fulfilment. When these capsules are taken, destiny fulfilment is guaranteed.
Now, one of these destiny capsules is the release of the past. If you cannot release the negative past, then you cannot access the positive future.
Beloved, dragging yesterday into today makes arrival in tomorrow impossible. This means, until you forgive and forget the errors, mistakes, missed opportunities, hurts, pains of the past, you cannot access your future. You must forfeit and forgo both the opportunities and failures of the past because you cannot hold on to the past and lay hold of the future at the same time. You cannot walk backwards into tomorrow.
The reason why you failed before is so you can rise and start again. You might have missed an opportunity in life; the good news is several other opportunities are coming your way. Someone might have hurt you but do not be bitter. The hurt is to make you better.
Beloved, God can turn things around for you and against the devil if only you can decide to let the past go. Receive the grace to drop the past so you can reach where God wants you to reach in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: You cannot walk backwards into tomorrow.
1. Deliberately take a decision to forgive, forget and leave your past behind.
2. Decide to conceive a solid vision for your future.
Prayer: O Lord, I receive the grace to forget my past. Give me a solid vision for the future, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
