“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: 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 NIV 

God longs for us to put our trust in Him. He wants to ready us for His greatness and help us find strength in the power of His plan. He invites us to keep our eyes focused, instead of looking back. But, when we waste time dwelling in the past, we forget reward waits around the corner.

Christ longs for us to keep our eyes focused on Him. Many will face uncertainty and have trouble looking ahead. But, Jesus will show us where to go. He will navigate a path to follow and help us learn to stay on course. He will lead us to the Father and remind us to keep on straining toward what’s to come…

Perhaps we look back, only to see how far we’ve come.  God will help us move past what’s behind, so we will see what's ahead. He will open our hearts to the power of His plan. And, He will help us recognize there WILL be blessings to come…

Dear God, Thank you for the power of Your will. We will trust in You and faithfully remember who has a plan for our days. We will open our eyes to the love of Your faithfulness, so we will stay focused on You and remember why we must keep looking ahead. Amen
