Look Ahead!

Thursday, November 15, 2007 (6:00 pm)

Luke 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

Some time ago, I wrote a devotional about not worrying for tomorrow because tomorrow holds its own worries. But it occurred to me recently, that just about as often as we worry for tomorrow, we worry for yesterday! How many times do we find ourselves saying, "I wish things could be the way they were, I wish I was younger, I wish I could fit into those jeans again, I wish……you fill in the blank"?

The Lord doesn’t want us looking back at what once was. Our enemy does — he wants us to feel discouraged and helpless over what we face today and drown in self-pity about how it was in the past. But God wants us to look ahead to new endeavors! He wants us to say "forget the old – there are great things for the future – I’m gonna look ahead!"

Let’s forget the past – it’s long gone already. Let’s move ahead and press toward the new things that the Lord wants to do in our lives.

    Thank you. I needed this wonderful reminder. Sometimes we get so entangled in our very own little world that we forget the simple details that God has placed in our minds to help us live a fulfilled life, such as holding NO memory of "what it used to be" but looking into the future where He awaits for us….
