Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” -Luke 9:62 (NIV)
Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God. -Corrie ten Boom
It’s hard to let go of the past…the good and the bad. But we can cherish the good memories, glean lessons from the bad ones, and trust God with our future. As I keep reading more and more in His Word, I see over and over how His long view of our lives works out.
God takes all of our experiences, good and bad, and uses every single one of them to build a better, stronger us…and one closer to Him than at any point in the past. Trust and believe…and don’t take my word for it, but His!
The Christian walk is all about moving onward and upward, letting go of all things with your sole–and soul–focus on Christ. Continue to pray, and like Abraham, surrender all to God–including the dreams and promises–and watch Him bless you like never before.
So, say goodbye to yesterday…trust Him with everything…because God’s plans for you are so much greater than you could ever imagine.
Danny Gokey’s “Tell Your Heart To Beat Again” gently urges us to close the door on yesterday, because we don’t live there any more.
