We have a choice! We can either live in the past and be past-orientated people, or we can look to the future and be future orientated people. It speaks of focus. We can be backward focused or forward focused. I believe that we must be forward looking people!
Philippians 3:12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.
Philippians 3:14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
This ‘pressing on’ attitude is the attitude of future orientated people. Choices play such a vital part in our lives. Choices dictate our future and to a large degree even our present. We are constantly faced with choices. Even God gives us choices.
Joshua 24:15 Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve.
Deuteronomy 30:19 I have set before you life or death, blessing or curse. Oh, that you would choose life; that you and your children might live! (The first step to moving on is choice.)
It starts as we choose to move on and leave the things that we have been holding on to. (EG: Past hurt, Past success, past failure or past disappointments) If you are fearful, then ask God to give you His wisdom, so that you can make the right choices. Don’t get cold feet. Step forward and lets move on.
