"...Do not [earnestly] remember the former things; neither
consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new
thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and
know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even
make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert..." -
Isaiah 43: 18-19 (AMP)
God does not want us to be backward looking, going
through life looking in the rear vision mirror. But
we so often can't help ourselves. We remember the
hurts of the past and the mistakes we made.
It's time now to look ahead and focus on what's before
us. God wants to do a new thing in our lives. He wants
us to rise up to our full potential in Him. He has called
us to do mighty things. He will even make a way when we
feel lost, and refresh us when we're burning in the heat.
We have got to keep on moving forward. It's only in moving
forward that we ever accomplish what God has called us to.
We can't stay where we're at, nor can we go backwards. The
only direction we can go is forward.
Yes, it can be hard – but it's the only way if we want to
move on in God and grow.
Don't be afraid to keep moving on,
For what was before, now has gone —
God wants to accomplish so much more,
But we need to move forward in the Lord.
