Philippians 3:13 “Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead…” To our GOD!
Leaving the Lesser!
I’ve had to leave my past behind and act like nothing happened while a thousand cheeks I turned because of others’ harmful actions.
But for payback I’m not looking neither banking on returns. I’m not coming back to “right things” nor towards Revenge am stirred.
Rather resting is this servant in the hands of CHRIST alone. Only HE can change the world
and for sinners lost — atone.
Therefore, retrieving satan’s thefts so shall HE restore my soul! Yet just those matching “Heaven’s grade” can continue me — Home!
Since all temporal things will stay here then these prayers shall be refined…for each heart to seek YOU solely; leaving “lesser things” behind!
As HIServant seeking only The Greater with you, serving GOD,
Devotional: Isaiah 43:18-19 “Remember not the former things, nor consider the
things of old.
Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
What a pair of encouraging verses, yes? The greatest and newest of life awaits us in CHRIST JESUS our LORD!
Luke 9:62 “JESUS said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of GOD.”
What a sovereign reminder someone paraphrased with, “Don’t look back because you’re not going that way.” Amen?
Philippians 4:1 “Therefore, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the LORD, my Beloved!”
We must stand firm in HIM with our eyes set forward and our hearts leaping upwards. Those whom GOD uses us to help lead to HIM are our Joy and crown too. How very precious!
2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in CHRIST, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come!”
Newness of Life, we are new creations as the former things which used to ensnare or distract us will be “left behind!”
Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal
for the prize of the upward call of GOD in CHRIST JESUS.”
With Diligence, steadfastness, perseverance and love, leave all “lesser things” behind, oh my soul!
Press onwards with Zeal for that Hour HE calls your name!
Amen and amen!
