Don’t esteem the past more than what God does!

past__present__future_by_xnotperfectbutrealx-d3exrqhIsaiah 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.’

Too many of us give too much power to our past and not enough power to our present. Past failures and past successes don’t have to dictate your present reality. If you give too much weight to what God did or didn’t do in the past, you’ll miss what he wants to do in the present.

There’s a reason why your rear view mirror is smaller than your front windscreen. Where you are heading is more important than where you’ve been. If you linger too long on where you’ve been, you’ll crash and miss the turn off to the direction God wants you to head in.

An interesting fact to consider is that when you look up into the sky at night at all of the beautiful stars, you are actually looking at the past. You see, most of the stars in the sky have already died and you are simply looking at the afterglow of them. Too often we look at the past with stars in our eyes and miss what God is wanting to do in our lives right now.

As you head into 2013, I want to encourage you to learn from the past, get healing from the past and celebrate the past but honour what God is doing right now in your life.

The Oracle!
