Toward the Mark

It is one of the devil's oldest tricks to discourage Christian believers by causing them to look back at what they once were. It is indeed the enemy of our souls who makes us forget that we are never at the end of God's love. No one will make progress with God until the eyes are lifted to the faithfulness of God and we stop looking at ourselves! Our instructions in the New Testament all add up to the necessity of looking forward in faith and not spending our time looking back or just looking within. Brethren, our Lord is more than able to take care of our past. He pardons instantly and forgives completely, and his blood makes us worthy! The goodness of God is infinitely more wonderful than we will ever be able to comprehend. If the "root of the matter" is in you and you are born again, God is prepared to start with you where you are!

Verse

Forgetting things which are behind... I press toward the mark. Philippians 3:13–14

Thought

No one will make progress with God until the eyes are lifted to the faithfulness of God and we stop looking at ourselves!

Prayer

Lord, keep my eyes on you as I run this race.
