FORGETTING THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE BEHIND
We recognize that our past history already exists; so it is easier to preserve and repeat. The future is full of unknown variables, so, if we allow it, FEAR can cause us to stay within a limited field of experience.
However, if we exercise faith in God's word (by AFFIRMING, MEDITATING, AND VISUALIZING ourselves in the Word), we will boldly step into the unknown with our confidence in God, knowing He has gone before us to prepare the way.
"Faith comes by hearing and hearing, by the word of God. - Romans 10:17
Habitually reflecting on past disappointment causes the memory to maintain a destructive connection with the past. The modus operandi of the enemy is to torment our minds as we imagine what could have or should have been. We are then filled with regret and shame rather than focusing on the possibilities that are ahead, and the wonderful DESTINY God has prepared to fulfill our lives.
Philippians 3:13,14 - "This one thing I do, FORGETTING those things which are behind and reaching forth unto those things which are before. I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."
It is imperative to always remember that God IS exact truth and faithful. One of the names of God is Faithful and True. To move forward into our DESTINY, we must completely disconnect from the disappointments, limitations, frustrations and failures of the past. If we are open to Him. The Holy Spirit will give us dreams in the night or streams of thought during the day to bring revelation and direction to our lives.
RHEMA TO OUR SPIRIT
The way we describe an event causes the hearer to believe success or failure. The spoken Word through prophecy is a powerful tool that unleashes a person's potential when they mix the hearing of the Word with faith. God's Word is progressive so it is always moving forward and it is active. We need to apprehend the Word of God so that it lives LARGELY and ACTIVE within us to advance our spiritual understanding of whom Christ is in us.
Observe the powerful picture as it is formed as vision, as it is manifested as we SPEAK and meditate on the Word. We liberate our inspired imagination to complete the vision and allow it to imprint our heart. This visual road-map will lead us to DESTINY.
God's words (when they become "rhema" to our spirit) have an ability to build, remove obstacles and clear a way to make new infrastructures. God's Word creates within us a new spirit full of hope, giving us the heartiness to stand expectantly on our feet again. His Word heals our brokenness and places a new song in our heart. He leads us on firm paths and brings refreshing to our weary souls. New-found comfort empowers us so we do not give up before we possess Gods' CALLING on our life.
