“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:14 KJV).
READ: Haggai 2:9
The past is the enemy of the future. One other important limiting factor of the past to look at is the successes of the past. Are you so full of your achievements that you think you have arrived? Are those awards, degrees and properties telling you there is nothing more to achieve in life? That is a deception form the devil. Past successes are enemies of the future. All you are is not all you can be. There is so much to become.
Paul said he did not see himself to have come to the point of making it. He said he had not yet arrived. Despite all the successes he had attained in ministry, he was still pressing toward the mark of the high calling of God. He had a focus, and that focus was never the past. The past is time that can never be compared to your future. No matter what you must have achieved in life, your tomorrow is much better.
Never dwell on the glory of yesterday. It will limit your forward movement. Keep dreaming, keeping pursuing and keep achieving. As long as you still have life in you, making impact must be your goal. Pressing on to a higher life must be your goal. Age should not be an excuse to stop your walk to destiny. The future is always now. Keep pushing on to it. You can always extend the boundaries of your dreams. Your past glories are nothing compared to your future. Dwell no more on the past and enter into a glorious future. You are a born achiever.
Father I thank You for the revelation of the cage my past glories can keep me in. I shake off all the pride and sense of satisfaction the past is giving me. I walk into my future with great zeal and passion to fulfill God’s plan for my life, in Jesus name. Amen.
