Jesus Doesn’t Pull Backward

The Lord Jesus doesn’t pull people backward. With His Word and Holy Spirit, He propels them forward. People, memories and failures tend to pull us backward. Apostle Paul said (Phil.3:13), “I forget those things which are behind and I reach forward to those things which are ahead.” It is very difficult to reach forward intending to grasp the prize when we have armfuls of past clutter preventing progress. That “reach forward” in v.13 means to reach beyond the places we have stopped in the past. We will no longer stop at the roadblocks and barriers we have yielded to in the past. Paul said, “I press toward the goal in Christ Jesus.” We are praying you discover daily that you are forgetting what is behind so you can press toward the goal.
