As we approach the beginning of a New Year, I want each and every one of you to make a declaration: No Looking Back…Move Forward! If you didn’t reach every goal that you set out to achieve, No Looking Back. If you were hurt/rejected by someone you loved, No Looking Back. If you lost some friends along the way (or you discovered that some people really weren’t your friends), No Looking Back. If you didn’t meet the love of your life like you had hoped and prayed for, No Looking Back. If you didn’t spend as much time in the Presence of God: praying, reading His Word, fasting like you promised, don’t beat yourself up about it. Thank God for His Grace, but No Looking Back. Now is not the time for regrets. Now is the time to repent (for procrastination, delayed obedience, partial obedience, and total disobedience), regroup, and refocus! Move Forward!
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:13-14).
One of the Great things about God is that His mercies are new every day. It is up to you to make the most of every day; make every God-given opportunity count. Pray and ask God to order your steps and direct your pathways (Psalm 119:133, Proverbs 3:6).
So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do (Ephesians 5:15-17 NLT).
It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness (Lamentations 3:22-23).
So, if you missed it this year, thank God that His Grace is sufficient. You are blessed to still be here, you have new mercies, and another opportunity to try again (2 Corinthians 12:9).
The enemy would love for you to believe that it’s too late, or that your time has passed. Thankfully, you serve the God Who created time, so don’t get stuck in the past with should’ve, could’ve, would’ve.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:10).
God wants you to enjoy the Abundant Life that He has placed before you. He desires to see you prosper: mind, body, and spirit.
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth (3 John 2).
Decree and declare it! Your time is NOW! Move Forward in your spiritual walk towards that deeper level of intimacy with God. Move Forward working towards being loved by freely giving the love you desire to receive. Move Forward working towards that career that you’ve been dreaming about. Move Forward setting into motion and executing that plan to reach your weight loss goals and becoming a healthier you. Move Forward in praying and believing God to send you Divine Connections and relationships with reciprocity!
So, That Settles It, No Looking Back…Move Forward!
P.S. You don’t have to wait until the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, you can start now!
Happy New Year!
We’re Ready for You!
