The 1st step to embracing the new thing what God wants to do in your life is to ….. CHANGE YOUR FOCUS — QUIT LOOKING BEHIND START LOOKING HEAD
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past…… If you are continually looking behind you cannot see where you are going….. If you are ever going to move on to new things in Christ you must learn that …
You Cannot Depend Upon Past Victories To Sustain You…. Forget the former things….
Application: The children of Israel had many victories in their past:
1. Leaving Egypt
2. Conquering the Land of Canaan
3. Fighting of prospective conquerors
4. Survived a split in their country
But now they are in captivity. All their previous victories were doing nothing to set them free. They needed a new work, a new miracle, a new victory….. The question isn’t what has God done –the question must be:
What is God doing in your life right now? What is it that you want Him to do in your life right now?
In order to move on to new things in Christ you must know that … You Cannot Allow Your Past Failures to Possess You … do not dwell on the past.
