Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on
toward the goal for the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Have you ever felt stuck between the past and the future? The past can be full of good memories but it also can include regrets, sorrow and grief…. To get stuck in the past is dangerous….the JOY of today is gone.
Are you afraid of what the future holds? Those fears, also, sap the energy and the joy of NOW and what God has for us.
I was young and now am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken…
Isn't it time to trust the God we know and put aside the fears?
What does God want us to do TODAY? He told us!
SEE YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS
AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU.
Yes, we have read these scriptures (above) and believe them in our hearts and head but are we DOING the Word? Are we forgetting what lies behind? Are we taking no thought for tomorrow, trusting Him to care for us? Are we seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness NOW, today?
Heavenly Father, please teach us to DO those things you instruct us to do…. In Jesus' name. Amen.
