FREE Yourself

"THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO ABOUT YESTERDAY TODAY IS - MAKE SURE YOU DON'T WASTE TOMORROW".  
Bishop Ken Sims

Your past has nothing to do with your future.  Now, I know there are those who would argue the point. I'm not saying that your past isn't important.  It is in the sense that we should be thankful to God for covering us with his grace, but most of us are bound by our past.

There's a story told about a young elephant that was chained to a stake in the ground by an eight-foot chain.  This was part of the training required for him to perform in the circus.  Whenever the young elephant would feel a slight resistance from the chain, he would spontaneously stop tugging. This continued over into his adult life. When he weighed several tons, he was yet bound by that same stake in the ground. The point is: that elephant was strong enough and well able to free himself but was still bound by his past.

Stop and think!  Are you like that elephant on an eight-foot chain? Many of us are so bound by our past.  We fear the future because of the past.  Listen!  Life is so short.  You cannot afford to think back.  Those who think back, go back.  Don't drag your past around with you.  Cut yourself free and discover the possibility of succeeding.

FORGETTING THE PAST
Paul, the apostle stated in Philippians 3:12-14, "Not that I have already obtained it [this goal of being Christlike] or have already been made perfect, but I actively press on so that I may take hold of that [perfection] for which Christ Jesus took hold of me and made me His own. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider that I have made it my own yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the [heavenly] prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." (AMP)

Notice!  Paul states, first of all, that he counted not himself to have arrived at perfection but that he was able to forget his past.   That puts him right smack in the present.  That's the position in time I want to focus on - the present.

Most of us fail before we give it a try.  Often, our mentality is: if I try this, sudden death is inevitable.  We've been trained by our surroundings and negative people to fail before we make an attempt. I call that a lack of faith.  

First, we must learn that the most important moment in our lives is NOW.  Hebrews 11:1 states, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen".  Secondly, we must not be afraid to make decisions. It is in making decisions that we become airborne for reaching our goals in life.
