Philippians 3:13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,
When you look back you are in your own power. When you Look up to Jesus you are now Dwelling and Living in His Love and Power!
Philippines 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
The devil will always have you look back to bring condemnation and sorrows to defeat you and steal your Blessings from The Lord Jesus Christ.
1 John 3:21-22 Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God. And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.
When you look back at the past with all the mistakes and sorrows, you are not Abiding in The Lord Jesus Christ and His Word. When you are relieving the past and all the sorrows, It is impossible to change the past. No where in The Bible Has God Almighty changed the past. You can change your present and future when you are Abiding and looking to The Lord Jesus Christ. The Past is dead, Looking to Jesus is Alive with a life full of Abundant Joy and His Divine Love Over flowing in you!
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have become new
Faith means you are Abiding and looking forward to the Promises of God Almighty’s Divine Word. You are instructed in The Bible to Live in Faith.
As long as your eyes and heart are on The Lord Jesus Christ and His Divine Word you will be walking and Abiding in Him always!
Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
