We can drive a car and only use the rear view mirror, however if we do we are absolutely headed for a crash. To get to where we need to go, we need to focus forward and only look back once in a while to see how far we’ve come.
We were made for growth. We were made in the image of God and blessed to multiply and flourish. Everything in us is created for progress.
Even when we lost our way, God couldn’t leave us to wither and decay. He sent His precious only son to earth to rescue, redeem, restore and reconnect us back to the Father.
Now through Jesus and His finished work on the cross we can receive the gift of righteousness and the abundant supply of grace which causes us to reign in life. Now as we focus forward and steer towards our goal, our Beautiful Lord and Savior, we will be led into our destiny and purpose.
Hebrews 12:1 (MSG) – When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!
