How to ensure success in 2014: A forward approach (Part 6)

Keys to successWhat exactly is lying ahead? The answer is we just never know. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Here are however three things:

  • Open doors! 

Revelation 3:8 See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut!

  • Different things.

Philippians 3:13 one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.

  • New things.

Isaiah 43:19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

  • Unlikely things.

Isaiah 43:19 I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.

This aspect of looking forward to what may lie ahead and not focusing on the past is the key to enjoying success. It needs to become our goal and our aspiration. Something we strive for and towards. This needs to be a daily focal point so that we do not fall into the trap!

Philippians 3:13 But one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead.

The Bible actually gives a stern warning to those who live and constantly keep looking over their shoulder to the past.

Luke 9:62 Jesus said unto him, no man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back (to the things behind), is fit for the kingdom of God.
