eyeInspire: Press Forward

“…But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind straining toward what is ahead.” - Philippians 3:13, NIV

Are you determined to forget what lies behind? I know many people don’t fully understand what it means to forget the past. They wonder, “How can I forget something that’s happened to me?” But one definition of the word forget is to disregard intentionally, or to overlook. See, you have to intentionally disregard your past so that it doesn’t keep you from moving forward. That means the good and the bad. Sometimes our past victories keep us from rising higher as much as past failures. If we don’t let go of the old, we’ll never be able to embrace the new.

Remember, it doesn’t matter what’s happened in your history, it’s time to forget what lies behind. Make the choice today to press forward. Trust that God has a better future in store for you. Trust that He’s working behind-the-scenes on your behalf. As you intentionally disregard what lies behind and press forward, I believe God will pour out His favor, grace and blessing upon you and lead you into the abundance He has prepared for you.

Today, pray that you can choose to forget the past. Don't let anything hold you back from the future God have prepared for you. Choose forgiveness and ask God to help you, by His Spirit, to press forward in every area of your life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
