No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. Philippians 3:13-14 (NLT)
We can easily get distracted by what happened in the past. We can look at our past failures. We can look at the things that happened to us and think that because of it, we are now disqualified from doing anything for God. But God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called. Instead of looking at what happened in the past, we can look on to what God has ahead of us. Our focus can be on God’s plan for us.
Spend time today asking God what He has for you in the future. Ask God what steps He wants you to take to move into your future. Ask Him what distractions you have in your life and take the steps to remove them.
