Daily Read – Isaiah 66:1-24; Philippians 3:4-21; Psalm 74:1-23; Proverbs 24:15-16
Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 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,
I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
You have an upward call filled with blessings and astounding adventures. I have plans to prosper you, to give you a future and a hope. My Word is your road map to your destiny revealing My will for your entire life.
My child, forget those things which are behind you. The enemy contrived a plan to rob you of destiny. From the time I breathed you into the womb, I had a plan, but so did the enemy. His strategy was to use lying and accusing spirits to build a case of failure and defeat against you. The enemy saw My mark of Kingdom destiny on your life and had to devise ways to stop your race. He formulated plans using circumstances to sabotage and derail My plans for your life. However, I am God he is not!
You have a choice to make. You can allow the hindrances of the past to set up obstacles in your future or you can disregard the past and reach forward to those things which are ahead. My child, press toward the goal for the prize of your eternal Kingdom call.
You are a citizen of the kingdom of heaven, having eyes to see into the unseen eternal realm. The things of this earth are temporal and subject to change. You are created to live in the present-future and not in the present-past. Your spirit man does not fit into the past because your past is gone. The blood of My Son Jesus washed it away. You belong in this present moment pressing into the future.
Stop looking to the past....you don't belong there anymore!
Father, In the Name above all Names, I relinquish all rights to my past. I renounce all agreements I made knowingly and unknowingly with past failures, disappointments, lies, and delusions. The past does not belong to me because it is under the blood. Father, You said you washed the sins of my past away and that You don't remember them. If You don't remember them, then I choose to forget them. I set the prize of my upward call before my eyes and I place my focus on that alone. I will run the race unhindered and free. I will victoriously cross the finish line with arms raised in high praise to You the author and finisher of my faith!
