My Daily Devotional


Look To The Future

“Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.”
Philippians 3:13

Once we forget the past, we can then reach out to embrace the future. If we continue to remember the past, it will press against our “present” and keep us from the future that God has planned for us. We can’t look backward and forward at the same time. When you asked Christ into your life, He put all your sins in the past, and they are forgotten. No matter how bad you were and may have sinned, these are no longer considered, as God did away with all of them. I have heard the old phrase that God put our sins as far from us as the east is from the west. I’m glad He didn’t say from north to south, because then we would meet our sins again, because if you start walking south, eventually you’ll reach the south pole, and then you’ll be going north, and can eventually reach the north pole. There is no east or west pole. When God forgives us of our sins, He forgets them. He never meets them again, and He doesn’t intend for us to meet them again either. Therefore, we leave the past sins behind, and look to our future glory in Christ. Don’t let yourself be burdened down with the memory and guilt of past sins. Christ shed His blood on the cross, so that we might no longer be bowed down with the weight of all our sins, as He wants us to give them over to Him. If you are struggling with something in your past, maybe it’s time that you turned it over to God. Remember that God has a plan and a purpose for your life, and if you are in bondage to your past, break the strings that bind you and free yourself. God has a future for you that is bright, and has big plans for you.
