Philippians 3:13-14 says, "Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
Sometimes, we can be so focused on our past that we forget that God has better things in store for us ahead. We get caught up in thinking about what has happened and can't let go. Satan can try to distract us with our past and make us lose our focus on God. Well, when Satan reminds you of your past, remind him of his future! Don't live in the past; instead, live in the present because God has His very best saved just for you.
If you are focused on your past because you feel guilty for something you've done, remember that God's mercies are new every day! Each day is a gift because it's our second chance. If you ask for forgiveness, He will be faithful to grant it to you! Just as God forgives us and forgets our sins, so we should do unto others.
Lamentations 3:22-23 says, "Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness."
Psalm 103:11-12 says, "For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us."
