Excerpt from 365 WWJD by Nick Harrison
Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. --Philippians 3:13-14
It is never wise to live in the past. There are, indeed, some uses of our past which are helpful, which bring blessing. We should remember our past lost condition to keep us humble and faithful. We should remember past mercies, that we may have confidence in new needs or trials in the future. We should remember past comforts, that there may be stars in our sky when night comes again. But while there are these true uses of memory, we should guard against living in the past. We should draw our life's inspirations not from memory, but from hope; not from what is gone, but from what is yet to come. Forgetting the things which are behind, we should reach forward unto those things which are before. -J. R. Miller
WWJD? REFLECTION Every one of us made mistakes last year. Every one of us, if we could, would recant on words spoken, deeds done, deeds left undone, decisions made. We are at the dawn of a new year. Ahead there may be similar pitfalls, along with some wonderful unexpected joys-all in the measure in which God apportions them to us. Today is the perfect day to discard the mistakes and confess the sins of the past year with the realization that a confessed sin is a forgiven and forgotten sin in the eyes of 'God. Let go of all the failures of the past year. Set your eyes on the months ahead with anticipation. Do as Jesus did when He "steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem" (Luke 9:51, KJV)--no looking back.
Treasure last year's victories. Forgive last year's hurts. Forget last year's disappointments.
"Behold, I make all things new." -Revelation 21:5, KJV
