Your Future isn’t Defined by Your Past 

Forgetting What Is Behind

Forgetting What Is Behind


TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:  …If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31, NIV.


I heard somebody say, “Don’t let your heredity stop your destiny.” In other words, don’t let the way somebody treated you, or what they did or didn’t give you keep you from pressing forward and becoming all that God has created you to be.

The people who raised you may have had addictions, but that doesn’t have to be your future. You can be the one to break that negative cycle. Your parents may have had anger issues or never amounted to much, but you don’t have to keep letting that curse be passed from generation to generation. You can be the one to say, “No more. This is a new day! I may have had an unfair past, but I’m not going to have an unfair future. I know God put a blessing on me before anybody could put a curse, and I’m not going to let my heredity stop my destiny.”

Today, know that God is for you! Seek Him with a humble heart and break free from the bondages of the past. When you choose to put Him first in your life, then nothing can stop your destiny!


Father, thank You for empowering me by Your Holy Spirit. Thank You for giving me new life. I choose to let go of the past. I won’t let it define me, but I will let Your truth define me and lead me into victory in Jesus’ name! Amen.

Your Future isn’t Defined by Your Past


The One Thing You Can Do

I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead. —Philippians 3:13

Paul knew the one thing that would help him more than anything was to forget the past.

How do we forget what lies behind us—the situations in our pasts, especially those things causing us to feel guilty? We stop thinking and talking about them, and keep pressing forward. We all have a past, but we also all have a future! Stop living in the past mentally and emotionally, and believe by faith that good things are ahead.

Don’t focus on things you can no longer do anything about, and don’t waste time in regret. Even though we make mistakes in life, we can recover and still enjoy an amazing life through Christ. Get excited! Good things are coming!

Power Thought: My past is the past; God has a good plan for what lies ahead.
